I would like to thank you all for this website! I was sooo fedup with having incontinence, that I deciced to have, what was recommended by a urologist, namely TVT. He did not explain is to me too well, so I decided to look on the net, what it really is all about. I must say it sounded horrible, but I thought this is the only thing that will work. Then I saw your site, that really opened my eyes. So I thought I would be better off as I am, rather than taking a chance and end up like some of you, my God, that is all I need!
I am going to try pessaries and/or tablets instead. THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!

I am writing to say a BIG, BIG THANK you for your website! I consider myself so lucky to discover existence of such an excellent source of information - just at the moment when I was arranging a date for my TVT operation. At that point I thought I ought to get some more information about the procedure apart from what I was mentionded during a brief consultation with an urologist. I was hoping to find also information on experiences of those who already had gone through such a procedure and get any tips on speeding my recovery. I also wanted to get a better idea of e.g. length of recovery time, so I could plan my recuperation and make any contingency plans for my work and family life. I sat reading alomost all of your website and all the links included till early hours of the morning, discovering facts I should had known before taking such an important decission, finding out about procedure itself and what it exactly involves. (What my urologist mentioned was so vague!) I thought I had tried everything when I resigned myself to a surgical intervention. Through your website I came accross other methods I haven't heard of and being much less invasive. You are very very brave woman to speak openly about such a taboo subject. I hope through your website you will be able to reach and help many, many more women like me. Unfortunately because it is a taboo subject a word of mouth method does not exist. I myself am guilty of that, and would talk about any other touchy subject apart of that one. You really are so brave and please do keep doing your good work. I wish you every success in concvincing established bodies of importance of providing such a well balanced, indpendent advice service like yours. What I liked about your website was exactly that - very well balanced and full of practical information and sound advice. Good luck and THANK YOU once more.

New webpage Relax Your Mind and Heal This will surprise all you meshie friends....
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".
