Bladder Slings & I.B.S
Last night I received a comment from yet another lady who told me that after numerous tests and constant health issues without answers, she has been diagnosed with I.B.S. She told me she thinks it is the diagnosis of choice when a doctor runs out of tests and ideas. This lady said she had a mesh sling implant put into her body ten years ago and lately she is having many more health issues including kidney problems and her cries are falling on deaf ears. She has been passed from one specialist to another without any definitive answers. This has become very normal for me to hear, which also makes me very sad.
I have heard this same story over and over again and I feel very bad for these women because it is not just about their suffering. They could have what Dr. Raz has called deep tissue infection and it can be very dangerous. I am not a health care professional but many of my mesh friend sufferers are, so when I get stuck with an answer to help women, I call upon them and ask what should I say to help other women. I did just that a few weeks ago when I realized how prevalent it had become when women kept telling me the same thing. I.B.S, and other similar illnesses like this became a mantra of sorts, so I first had to ask why. Then I wrote a blog and this is the link. Please read it and learn what natural product to take to try to make it through until you have your sling removed. It could be a matter of life and death
Once again I want to thank the ladies who have this knowledge and want to help others while suffering themselves. Without them I could not write any of this information here.
The problem with mesh in our bodies is that our symptoms are so varied. Sometimes it is because of the length of time it has been in our bodies and sometimes it is the sling type. The mesh material harbors infection and as time goes on it can cause these women to suffer greatly and their symptoms mirror the symptoms of these other diseases. I have written about women who contacted me after being opened up by other surgeons and then sent home because the surgeon said they could do nothing. One woman in particular I wrote about here in this blog, “Mesh can KILL YOU” (http://meshangels.com/2012/03/mesh-can-kill-you).
I can now give you news of hope after this woman had removal surgery by Dr. Raz. She had a rough time for awhile because she was in extremely bad condition, but she made it through surgery and she is now back home and running her full time business. It makes me very thankful that Dr. Raz is there and I wish all women could go to him for help. I know this is not possible, but you can arm yourself with knowledge and show your doctor the information to get the help you badly need. You should be aware that most are not educated about mesh complications because it is not their field, but you need to explain what you believe is wrong, when all else has failed. IT IS THE MESH! I wish you the greatest of luck.
I always try to add a link that you can read that will help you understand why other illnesses can mimic mesh complications. Here is one explaining these internal disorders. I hope it will help you, “Irritable bowel syndrome”: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001292.
