I am 61, have had a hysterectomy, then a bladder suspension mesh, and now have been prescribed estrace (estradiol) cream to avoid mesh protrusion is this normal?

In brief: Yes

This is very standard after the surgeries you described.
Using the estrogen cream will help reduce problems with the mesh, which are actually quite rare. The cream helps to tissue stay healthy and lubricated.
