Prolapse Bladder Mesh Surgery

I had a hysterectomy and anterior bladder repair sugery in July of 2007 (due to a prolapsed bladder & uterus). Since then, my bladder has prolapsed again, and now I have an entracele or rectocele which protrudes through my rectum when I do bowel movements. My gynecologist referred me to a urogynecologist, who does bladder mesh surgery. He explained that the mesh is anchored to the base of the tailbone, & I think 2 more points. He drew me a picture of how he could use mesh, as well, to fence off the entracele. I asked about erosion, but he answered that erosion problems have been associated with doing the surgery vaginally, & that when a bikini-cut abdominal incision is made, the rate of erosion or mesh failure drops to 4%. I am confused about the type of mesh surgery this is, & whether it is safe over the short and long term. My surgery is schedulled in 2 weeks, but I am not comfortable about it, and will postpone it until my questions are answered. Please give me some feedback.
