What Can We Do About Our Mesh
Over the past few weeks I have been shocked at the rising number of women who have contacted me through this blog. Women who have been suffering for many years since mesh was placed inside their bodies. They have struggled on through so much pain, trying to find out what was wrong, only to be told nothing. They were given tests, pain killers, antidepressants and shoved out the door with labels placed on them as whining complainers who have absolutely nothing wrong with them. Why does this keep on happening? Why do our doctors not listen to us and dismiss us so easily. Sadly it is because the mesh manufacturers voices are louder than ours.
The old way of doing a bladder lift hasn’t been taught in many years due to the simple training of opening a packet, pulling out a device and slap it in us. Yes, it is that simple for doctors and the mesh manufacturers that they are in bed with. Do you really believe that when you walk into your doctors office that you are dealing with just him or her? Wake up! We can no longer believe this fairytale. When you walk into his or her office you are confronted with an invisible line of organizations standing in line behind our doctor who are using them as puppets. Was I or am I not angry with my own doctor? Of course I am. However, I have sat down and gone through everything that happened to me and realized that she was doing what she had been taught. She was not using her own voice, she was using the voices of all the people who paid her way through medical school and on up the ladder to medical success. So when she dismissed me as someone who had nothing wrong with me or must have had these problems before surgery, she was protected her lifestyle and those of her medical practice group. I became an incidental to everything she had earned from many years of practicing medicine. If she speaks up about mesh products, her job will be no more.
So what can we do? Well, if you worked your way through miles of lawyers links on Google and suddenly found me, then I can tell you that I pledge to do everything I can to help you find a doctor who can safely remove your mesh and give you back your life. I can’t promise you the world, but I will be here for you through your struggle along with a vey small but dedicated group of women who are just like you and me. We have joined together to help those suffering the way we are or have been.
I still have the mesh inside my body. I don’t have enough money to buy the right kind of insurance and still leave me enough to pay my way in life. There are days when I want to rip it out of myself and scream at the world. Then there are days when I pick myself up and make my life worthwhile. These mesh manufacturers cannot be allowed to take our lives away from us.
We can help you find a competent doctor. If you have trailed your way through a minefield of lawyers links and still don’t know what to do, we can guide you. We are NOT paid by anyone to do this. We are YOU! We are sick of what happened to us and to so many women in the world who have been left to suffer. Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do what I can to get you through to a better, more productive life. You are not alone!
