I had a TVT (Trans Vaginal Tape) inserted in July 2010 for slight stress incontinence. Since then over 5 yrs I've had repeated bouts of urine infections all with different symptoms and have just had three infections over the course of three weeks! Have just seen the consultant today who tells me I've got to have antibiotics and self catheterise myself for six months. I am beside myself and holding back the tears. This may not work even after six months, I am so scared this will turn into a lifelong issue I don't think I can cope with. I have achy pains down my legs and a painful tailbone which i have just read can be some of the ailments caused by the tape! Should I try and have the tape removed, but then even this carries its own problems!!! I need guidance and reassurance, please!!!
