Lorraine the founder of this website is a sufferer of TVT/Mesh, Myasthenia Gravis and Diabetes
Since having this TVT/Mesh surgery back in 2005 I developed an autoimmune neuromuscular disorder and I have been diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis and Diabetes. Besides running the TVT Mum support group and website I am also a member to both the M.G and Diabetes organizations. At this present time I have had one partial TVT mesh removal surgery and I still have a load of mesh still left inside my body. I live in hope and for the day to arrive for me to have surgery to completely remove the TVT/Mesh from my body and hoping the Myasthenia will go back into remission and the diabetes will be diet controlled. Please take a moment to watch the MGA video introduced by Nick Ross, it does send out the message and an understanding on Myasthenia Gravis. I have also added a video on Diabetes as below. Thank you for supporting these worthy organizations.

New High Definition Myasthenia Gravis Medical Video
Introduced By Nick Ross Myasthenia Gravis is an auto-immune disease which is characterized by fluctuating, sometimes fatal, muscle weakness. The body's immune system, in the form of antibodies, attacks and damages the nerve signal reception areas on the muscles - causing a breakdown in communication between nerve and muscle; this results in a loss of effectiveness of the muscle.

Diabetes UK has worked with RNID to produce information in British Sign Language (BSL) for the people with diabetes in the Deaf community.
