Mesh / UTI
AnneJ64 posted:
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,
