Mesh Doctors Without Ethics
Gosh I am so angry! How could so many doctors lie and verbally and mentally ill treat their patients when confronted with mesh complications. This may seem so unbelievable to you but to me it is more of the same because I read what women write and hear their stories over the phone. Thankfully some women leave comments for you to read instead of just telling me privately. Because of this, women around the world will be yelling louder about what is going on.
Last night a comment came in that had my blood boiling. This is it.
“Please help me. I have it in writing that my doctor would not use transvaginal mesh for my surgery and he even said it again the day of my surgery. He said they don’t use mesh only my own body. The op report says he used a Desara sling. I have been having issues starting in August but the Dr dismissed my pain as adhesions. Please help”

I looked up the Desara sling because I have never heard of it and it clearly states it is mesh. This is the link. https://www.calderamedical.com/medical-professionals/products/desara
This young woman is twenty six years old and now she will have to undergo more surgery. More pain and suffering. How dare this doctor sign a paper and then do as HE wished. How dare he blatantly lie to her. This is an outrage and I told her to make a copy of the paper he signed and report him to her State Medical Board. This has to stop! Ladies if you have any ill treatment by doctors in any form, such as dismissal from him/her seeing you when you complain of your mesh complications or verbal abuse he/she thinks no one can hear, please put your State and report doctors in Google and do something.
Update! A medical friend told me that the best place to report something like this is to google your State Dept of Proffessional Regulations to file a complaint any time. These people are the ones who gives the licence.
Also send your complaint in to the Agency for Healthcare Administration if it happens within one year of surgery or seeing a doctor.
Far too many women are telling me their doctors lie to them about removing all mesh when they can’t or don’t know how to and then no longer wanting them as patients when they complain of continuing pain. To being told in E.R.s all they want is money and there is nothing wrong with them. Also to being told all that is wrong is that the woman is too fat and should lose weight. OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOR BY MEDICAL PRACTIONERS! And I am so angry this is happening.
Not only do we read on our hospital records that we were told about medical complications when we were not (yes it happened to me too) but we are dismissed as people who are depressed and need medicating, or we are making it all up.
Ladies, it is time to stand up and say no more. Anyone who treats you this way MUST be reported. You must take control and say you are a human being and this is not allowed. We women should not abused and neglected by the people we trusted. We don’t tolerate this in animals and yet it is happening to women every day.
Say NO more to these doctors. Take charge and report what is going on. They think they are immune from our system. Protected by their license. But…they are not. You can change this one woman at a time. Please do something so that this does not keep happening to others. I cannot do this alone and need your help to change things. We must say “No more” to this……………………
