I am 57 year old female, 5'2" 112 lbs. I had the bladder sling surgery in 2007. In July 2010 the mesh was coming thru the vaginal wall so I had surgery for the part that was thru removed and repaired. In the summer of 2011 I began having frequent UTI's. My doctor referred me to Urologist and with a cystoscopy test the diaginosed there was a suture with a stone the size of a match head on the interior wall of the bladder and recommended a simple surgical procedure to remove the stone and clip the suture. I had the procedure in Dec 2011 and it was not so simple. What he thought to be a stone fell apart and what he thought to be a suture was actually the mesh coming thru the bladder wall. Not entirely sure if he improved it or made it worse but only time will tell. He said " If you are lucky it will heal over. If not you will need to be referred to a specialist in Indy." Any information, suggestions or words of wisdom you could give me would be greatly appreciated. As a footnote, Urologist 1,2 and 3 for my procedures are all different as the first and second both moved out of state.
