I do believe, in my case, so much straining because of the narcotic pain meds I take, has lead to the cystocele and rectocele surgeries.
Ginnie is right on about the mesh. The doctor that did my cystocele used mesh. The urogyny that did the Rectocele said the first urologist should not have used mesh. My rectocele was done without the use of mesh and my own body was used to close the surgery. Too many things tied in to problems with the mesh.
Oh, Saffy, just read about the possible return of infection. I hope it is just tender and not another infection. You have been thru so much.
Hope you are able to spend a nice quiet Easter.
