My embarrassing bladder....fixed by a 'fishing line' implant
Shame on you Isable Boyer!!!!! for bringing yet more dis-information! The operation called tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), involves inserting a mesh strip made from woven plastic material similar to fishing wire under the middle of the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder. This effectively tightens up the 'pipe'. Please scroll down the page and read below the Sunday Daily Mail review supplement dated 11th December 2011 and also read the profile of the patient!

9 April 2011 - I left a comment on a DM blog alas they did not publish how disgraceful...This is NOT democratic and just shows the Rag to be biased probably receiving handouts from the pharmaceuticals..People that are suffering can alert other women-men to the dangers of this MESH which is not TOLD to US, its serious,we are being maimed,its criminal...Uncaring and undemocractic Daily Mail they should be ashamed!!

9 April 2011 - How despicable that DM both provides a forum for us sufferers and then openly premotes the TVT surgery as the best thing since sliced bread. How very irrespponsible well done now many more women will suffer as a result. The lady in question should be thoroughly ashamed of herself, hope the rewards were worth it!!!

5 April 2011 - Absolutely disgraceful the Daily Mail online has published this article and now they have put more women in unsafe hands with the prospect of facing multiple surgeries once this mesh tape goes inside the body. This is a PERMANENT IMPLANT, there is nothing in this article that mentions mesh tape related complications. I hope you are happy with yourself Lucy for publishing this article you did not research the truth on these mesh tapes, get your facts straight, we are not told the full truth at our consultations.

After reading this article for a businesswoman who has suffered for 20 years with stress incontinence in my eyes does not fit right with me. 20 years! I don't think so considering her position as chair to a number of public bodies and a member of the Trust Board at the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, really oh really! says it all. More like promoting the product than an actual true life story.

I was in an important job too and could only get through 6 months of stress incontinence and decided to leave and return back to work after surgery although it did not work out like that instead it has totally ruined my life and could not return back and now I am housebound. Stress incontinence is totally embarrassing for the person suffering with it and also you do not feel comfortable around people, there is no way I could of coped with this condition whilst at work. This woman Suzy in the article says 20 years suffering with stress incontinence I just cannot believe that for one minute.

Although most of their consultations are excellent, I have to say on this occasion viewers were mis-informed on the use of mesh tape. Details arriving soon.

Article in the Daily Mail
Good on Goodmans Solicitors!!! well done. In the UK there is one group lawsuit currently ongoing in Liverpool involving 600 patients who received treatment from a surgeon involving the TVT medical device although the case is not solely on the TVT and involves other issues which are not disclosed to protect confidentiality. If you live in the Liverpool area and received surgery from this surgeon George Rowland please contact Mr Ian Cohen of Goodman's Solicitors which is representing most of the women.

More information on the Lawsuit Blunder surgeon in £10m lawsuit; patients take him to court.
