How mesh surgery has effected our quality of life

Updated: 20 May 2011

quality of life I decided to publish this webpage to give a more understanding to the general public and to everyone who is suffering from mesh surgery. This will give you the opportunity to share your stories on how these mesh surgeries has affected your daily life. Unfortunately we not only have our health to contend with but also since having this tvt surgery we face the affects on our quality of life. Over the years I have heard people loose their careers, homes, marriages ruined, partner relationships ruined, family and children loosing out, social life gone, permanately disabled, no longer able to walk, sit, constant pain and loads more devastating affects on our quality of life.

Please read some of the stories showing below:-

Reading that new biography 'who am I?' is just tragic and yet it is similar for us all when mesh is there inside. Maybe I am one of the lucky few who has escaped but also one who has been on the inside so fully understands.
