Hi Ronda,

I understand your worry and concern.

You need to consume as much of fluids as you can. Take cranberry juice on a daily basis.

I understand that you have been on antibiotics for some time now.

It is better to do a urine culture and then take the appropriate antibiotic depending on the sensitivity.

It is possible for a sling to slip if the suture ligatures slip off.

I am sorry that you are facing such a frustrating situation, but things can get better if you follow these simple measures.

Hope this helps.
