Mesh Removal and TV Adverts
For several days I have been working on spring hats ready to put them up for sale and although I can’t work for very long at a time due to so many problems caused by the mesh in my body, I know I have to keep going to make money for my expenses for mesh removal later this year. As I work, I have heard and seen the adverts by lawyers about bladder sling mesh complications. What I am always struck by is that there is never an offer for counseling or doctor referrals. Of course I understand why. The law is the law, medical is medical and everyone stays to themselves.
However, if you are one of these women who are wondering who to go to to have your mesh removed, then you are probably afraid of who you can trust. I don’t blame you at all. For those of us who have been living in pain, the last thing we wish to do, is prolong the pain by choosing the wrong doctor to have it removed. That is why, with the help of women who have already had their mesh removed, we’ve put together an information email to help you make your own informed choice. Never let anyone take away your choices. Don’t blindly trust, me included. Talk to others who have experienced good results from removal surgery and are willing to help you through with both counseling and the all important, being listened to. None of us are doctors. All we are is a very small group of women willing to step up and give you help in whatever way you need it. All you have to do is ask.
If you are a woman who had your sling in 2 to 5 years ago and you are breathing a big sigh of relief that you are still fine and doing well, I hope it stays that way for you. I would not want any complications wished onto anyone. However, please be aware that a growing number of women are contacting me, who had their sling in five or more years and suddenly feel symptoms of mesh erosion. You know your own body. You know when something has changed even if you are being told by your long time doctor that it could not possibly the mesh. You have to take charge of your own life and go for a second opinion to find out exactly why you feel the way you do. That means you have to go to someone who is trained in finding mesh erosion and has all the right equipment. The symptoms you are noticing will not go away. They will worsen over time and can stop you enjoying your life. So if you are reading this and know that I am speaking of you, then all you have to do is contact me and I will do everything in my power to help you.
