    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    There is a recent recall on mesh that was being used for patients that had bladder repair and hernia repair from a few years ago. Does any one know if this mesh or other products that were used can cause a UTI?

    Hello AnneJ and welcome!

    I posted this about the Mesh Recall , plus you may want to see Nurse Jane's blog posting on the same topic. After reading them, you may want to take a list of questions to your doctor. Or possibly ask your doctor for a referral to a specialist, such as a gyno-urologist.

    Let us know how you're doing,
