Article in the Womans Weekly Magazine dated 18th January 2011

Submitted 5 February 2011

It is a crying shame through lack of education within our medical world the NHS, the pharmaceutical backed organizations ie: Bladder and Bowel Foundation and the governing bodies MHRA and NICE who regulate these medical devices plus the lack of research on this growing serious health problem more people have now been mis-informed on the truth from this article published in the womans weekly as below.

I hope the people who have ill health caused by these medical devices will see this article and show them all they are suffering not only with their health but have had to face life changing circumstances possibly for the rest of their lives. I hope they will bombard the magazine with their thoughts!

I am concerned that neither the Womans Weekly magazine or the Bladder and Bowel Foundation did their own research before submitting this article for publication considering it is Medical Law as stipulated by the Governing Body National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in this country for all surgeons to point out complications relating to any surgery, not just the normal complications but the complications associated with these types of medical devices. It just goes to show again how we trust the words of these surgeons alone without doing our own research, exactly what we all did before our surgery!

There is nothing in this article to point out mesh related complications with this surgery. There are alot of risks involved with these medical devices besides having infections. Please view what mesh complications are arising from these medical devices on this link www.tvt-messed-up-mesh.org.uk/important-issues.html

If you want evidence of what can happen besides viewing it from this website type in any search engine - TVT complications - mesh erosion - tvt problems - tvt mesh nightmare, you can also view live online stories from people who are suffering and most are having to deal with multiple surgeries to get the mesh out of their bodies, you can see the links on this webpage www.tvt-messed-up-mesh.org.uk/stories.html

That article is the same has what they said to me....This is why so many women have been maimed because theres NO truth.....All we can do is tell the truth about the MESH and hopefully women will be saved.

Plus telling you at the hospital its a non invasive procedure its VERY invasive it ROBS your health your RELATIONSHIPS and destroys your confidence it should be BANNED....Its PROFIT before HEALTH and CARE..I read they are putting this in girls has young as 19 which breaks my heart and the oldest lady ive spoke to locally is 72....Its a device that can never be completely removed and the consultants earn so much money takeing pieces of it out,its criminal....
