Yes she had a prolapse (she had 7 children). I believe that is why she had the mesh put in. She was told that it might not work so I think we may assume it didn't and therefore that she most likely has had another prolapse. I am not positive on the cystoscopy. Would that have been required before the surgery? Can you give me your thoughts on the cypro question I initially asked as well?
Ok thanks. I did not know about the serious side effects. One last question then. If she did have a cystoscopy nothing unusual was seen, what other alternatives might she have? I know what she goes through with these UTIs. They really knock her for a loop. I believe that at 85 years old she would take the chance on the side effects. The problem with having to physically see her Dr everytime is that she suffers for a day sometimes two before she can actually get her hands on the meds. I look forward to your opinion. Thanks so much for your time and I will rate you with a smiley face as soon as you reply.
