Brief Answer:
May be due to infection, diabet, fistula or "mesh" decomposing

Detailed Answer:
Dear Patient,
Welcome and thank you for your question.

Have you performed urine analysis and blood analysis? you need to do it to check for bacterias. Sometimes bacterias can produce the smell of urine (although you may have had no burning).
I would suggest first a urine analysis and urine culture to check for any anormalities values plus the blood analysis to check for your sugar (glucose level). You need to make sure that you are not diabetic, cause that may be due to diabet.
Second, I kindly advice you to make an abdominal- supra pubis ultrasound examination or intravaginal ultrasound to check for any kind of fistulas
since they may be the cause also.

If you have increased leucocites in your blood and if in your urine are strange bacterias growing on, then you need to take antibiotics.

If you have any fistula, or the "mesh" is being decomposed then you have to talk with your surgeon for a second intervention to close the fistula.

If you have other questions, please feel free to post them.

Best Regards,
Dr. Eni

Hello, I have a question regarding insulin resistance and dehydration. I m a Type 1 Insulin Dependent diabetic. Have been for nearly 16 years. My HA1c was last 4.9% so I keep my numbers extremely regulated. Anyways to the question, can severe dehydration lead to insulin resistance? I have some idea of the physiology but I want to understand it thoroughly. Let me give you the story first so you can maybe give me the walk through of it all especially the dehydration and insulin resistance. So after heavy drinking ( not something I do often at all....) , 6-7 hours of hard alcoholic drinks and no water during this time. I went to sleep woke up the next morning feeling very thirsty, it d been about 18 hours since I had a sip of water. So I drank some, and became nauseous. My sugars kept rising, initially was 192, ended up at 425 before I had to call 911. I was not holding down water.. my glucose was rising, I was taking massive amounts of insulin, somewhere in the 80-100 units of Humalog range. I take ~60 units in a day and this was in a matter of 12 hours probably. And my numbers did not drop. My question is why and whats the physiology behind the insulin not working? Something with the dehydration but Im not quite understand it. Please answer this if you can. Oh and I was not consuming food during this time so the glucose rise was not from carbohydrates.

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition? I am also worried that in time he might have some renal or cardiovascular problems. So far he seems very healthy and is growing just fine on his fructose based diet. Thank you

sir i am 38 years old & diabetic since 6 years... i have a sever allergy problem & increases when i take salt even in normal level. recently i felt severe burning sensation in mouth & stomach & even the lips.. i underwent endoscopy & was reported to have antral gastritis. since then i used Razo-D & found that it was more severe & my physician changed the medication to veloz-D .. even that didnot seem helpful because they led to diarrhoea.. i stopped the medication & ate only boiled vegetables... everything went on well. now i stopped taking medicines for diabetes as they are lowering glucose levels... to control gastritis what should i do ?? my weight is 45kgs
