Mesh & Studies Why This Can Injure Women

The women of the world are uniting to change what is happening to women when medical mesh is used.  This morning I spent some time talking to a lady in England who has been suffering because of a bladder sling since 2006.  Teresa, although in pain struggles to meet with those in Europe she feels should be listening to all our pleas and sadness.  Other ladies in Canada are fighting to prove to their government that partial mesh removals leave women in pain and with many illnesses.  It was one of these ladies who presented me with a package of documents that they gathered from medical files and told me to share it with the world.

Who will listen to us?  Who will fight to change things?  Why must more women be injured by a product that has been studied and these studies say mesh is NOT inert in the human body.  The term ‘inert’ is used in the world of chemicals and this is a good description of what it means.

“An inert chemical, under this context, is one that does not have a toxic effect on the species the pesticide is meant to combat, but that does not rule out that it may still have a biological activity on other species, including being toxic to humans. Solvents, propellants, preservatives, among others, are thus considered inert ingredients in pesticides.” 

Now you will understand why I write about this and will share any or all of these documents with anyone who asks to receive them via email.  Look to the right and you will see how to email me.  There is NO CHARGE.  You do NOT have to make any donation to me or anyone else.  I abhor those who try to make money from women’s suffering. These very women need to understand what product is inside them and should not have to pay for that information.  They need that money to get help with mesh removal.  These documents are for you to read so that you understand what is happening inside your own body.

Document #1.  Post-Implantation Alterations of Polypropylene in the human body.
This is a six page study that states clearly that mesh products do NOT remain inert in the human body.  It states that the quest for the perfect mesh MUST continue.

Document #2.  Polypropylene as a reinforcement in pelvic surgery is not inert: comparative analysis of 100 explants.  (an explant is mesh after it has been removed)
This is a ten page study with pictures of all types of mesh.  This hypothesis may explain the observed degradation of specimens implanted beyond three months.  This is a necessary period for oxidation to affect the PP structure.

Document #3.  Shrinking of Polypropylene Mesh in vivo: An Experiment Study in Dogs.
This is a five page study with photos and results showing shrinkage of mesh in dogs.

Document #4.  Degradation, infection and heat affects on polypropylene mesh for pelvic implantation: what was known and when it was known.
This is two pages telling that an abundance of information was presented to the FDA and mesh manufacturers prior to clearance of most meshes.

Document #5.  The impact of translabial ultrasound on diagnosis and treatment of mesh related complications.
This is two pages explaining the methods and result of using this useful tool.

Once again.  If you would like any or all of these documents emailed to you, you can email me ( linda@teacupmilliner.com ) where you can request them.  It is time to get educated.
