PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT ARTICLE from the British Medical Journal (BMJ)
Take note those advocating the use of mesh in hernia repairs
Dated 26th June 2009
Abstract - Five years ago I wrote, in addressing the use of mesh in herna repairs, "Inserting an open mesh in a patient is akin to inserting a limpet mine. It may never be hit by a ship but if it is it could sink it. The risk is of infection developing in the mesh latter years during the course of another illness, such as an AP resection which requires the formation of an adjacent colostomy or admission to an ICU for organ dysfunction. In the latter instance the mesh could become an occult nidus of infection that kills the patient"

At last the colour scheme for the website looks good! I am now ready to do the logo, I will add more content once the website colours and logo is finished. I am also doing a slideshow to show all quotes we have heard from sufferers and the medical experts, ie: expert "I've done 600 and no problems" patient "my marriage is ruined" if you have heard of a good one let me know and I will add it. I hope this website will proof valuable to all who are thinking of having the TVT Sling or polypropylene mesh in surgery and for all suffering from any complications post operative.

23rd May 2009
Website tvt-messed-up-meshed.org.uk (TVT Mum) was started on 23rd May 2009 requested by ladies here in the UK suffering complications after having surgery involving the medical device TVT Sling (transvaginal tension free tape) and others including men who have experienced complications with having surgical mesh (prolene) polypropylene mesh for hernia's, prolapse and other bladder and bowel surgeries.

At this present time we do our own extensive research on this area as I was told from a Medical Professional and on good authority "the medical profession is actually very alert to surgical complications and sadly, investment in research into the area is not regarded as a priority by medical research funding bodies, which seriously hampers our ability to get a true handle on the situation".
