Mesh News Desk and Corporate Action Network, a consumer group, are asking you to share the link below with your group and all of your links! Again the door closes Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at midnight! This form makes it very easy, you can write if you want, but you don't have to.
The FDA has never before asked your opinion. Please share it.
The new mesh survivor coalition is trying to collect voices from all mesh survivors who have been injured from transvaginal mesh used for incontinence and prolapse as well as hernia mesh survivors. It is the same mesh- polypropylene plastic- permanently implanted.
The trials so far show us that industry knew there would be an unending foreign body response and a basic bio-incompatibility, but mesh makers marketed it anyway.
Included below is the website but we really need help - can you ask your members/ friends/ family/ co-workers to sign our FDA comment? Ask 5 people, share to your lists, your Facebook, your email list - WE CAN DO THIS!
If we want the FDA to listen to us and not just the medical device industry, we need as many survivors and allies to sign on as soon as possible.
Here's the link: http://meshsurvivors.org/tell-fda-reclassify-mesh.
