Newcastle man demands hospital records


THEY’RE the women told they’re going crazy – that the excruciating, extraordinary pain in their groins, backs and legs is actually all in their heads.

They’re women who received pelvic mesh implants over more than a decade from 2005 when regulators failed them, and medical devices hit the market without clinical evidence of safety or efficacy.

Partial vs. Full Mesh Removal Surgery

This article is By • 2014/11/23 from her blog www.meshmenot.wordpress.com

Women suffering from mesh complications often have difficulty finding a doctor who will acknowledge that their pain IS being caused by the mesh.  When their pain and problems are finally acknowledged as being mesh-related (often when the doctor can actually visibly see the mesh eroding into their vaginal wall and there is NO denying it), what they are usually offered as treatment is a “partial removal”, or a “revision”.
