Most of you know that polypropylene is generally used to make mesh, that is a petroleum-based plastic that many experts have warned is not biocompatible, especially when you consider the treatment it receives.

The Petition says: “The use of TVT Slings and Surgical Mesh are inhuman and ruining the lives of entire families. These products were put on the market without proper testing and are dangerous in many ways. First off the chemical make up of the mesh is toxic to the human body. There are many studies to back this in fact the EPA has banned it from being used in fish tanks so what makes it OK to implant it into the human body? The Mesh is sharp, it shrinks, the chemicals in it are poison. The FDA has put out several warnings but its still being used. and ruining more lives daily. We need our government to act responsibly and step in where the FDA and Pharmaceutical companies have failed us and put the dollar ahead of peoples lives. We at TVTNO.org have been begging and pleading for several years.”

    With attorneys dropping cases , because women getting on web sites like this one and more , speaking out, Is signing this petition going to hurt women from being dropped also.? I know this is not just for the women severly damaged by mesh to shut them up, as we the people do want to speak out , but are told that we will not get cases heard in courts if we do.

    So many women suffering, and told they cannot speak out and vent anger or what they have gone through, neither can they tell it in a court room, either, or cases thrown out. Never to see any compensation, with attorneys putting them in more emotional stress , wanting pay after dropping them to take all they have? Where and when will truth and justice for all be heard? The cruelty that some have gone through, so severe, being lied to and ridiculed by medical profession too, now attorneys also. The mesh was not enough to suffer with infections and scaring and lied to and made fun of by medical, but attorneys now turn on clients????? WHY? TO TAKE FROM WOMEN AND PUT THEM THROUGH MORE? A NIGHTMARE, WHY ARE JUDGES NOT STOPPING THIS FROM HAPPENING?

    yOU WOULD HAVE ALL THE SIGNATURES OF WOMEN DAMAGED FOR SURE, BUT LIKE THEY STOP ANY TRUTH FROM BEING TOLD , WHY? DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS , IS WHAT THEY SAY TO WOMEN DAMAGED , JUST LET ALL IN MEDICAL KEEP BUTCHERING YOU AND LYING AND SAY THAT IS NICE , YOUR HEALTH DETERIORATING FROM MESH , AND ATTORNEYS THAT WON’T ANSWER CALLS, SAY YOU DO NOT TRUST ME, i DON’T CARE WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH, TALKING TO YOU IS COSTING ME MONEY, WHAT ABOUT WHAT PRICE YOU HAVE PAID? HOSPITALS AND MORE OF RECORDS THEY HAVE ALREADY READ AND HAVE AND YOU HAVE TO PAY GETTING BILLED FOR WHAT DOCTORS AND ATTORNEYS WILL NOT TELL YOU. PUTTING MORE COST ON CLIENTS IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE BECAUSE THEY REFUSE TO BE TRUTHFUL WITH CLIENTS CLIENTS ARE PAYING COSTS THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR MORE LIES TO GET THOSE RECORDS. THAT THEY ARE NOT WELL TO KEEP ON WITH WHAT ATTORNEYS ALSO NOW ARE PUTTING ON THEM. GOD HELP US!

    I had mesh sling inserted over 10 years ago. Dr now tells me no implants last longer than 10 years.

    Don’t have it done.

    • Jane Akre says:

      Jean- That’s a new one, in fact the new AUGS statement supporting the use of slings highlights one study with a 17 year follow-up (only 61 people) as proof of its long standing safety and efficacy. AND remember the sling is supposed to be a permanent medical implant. Women are told a wide ranging option of things. Perhaps they should speak to each other first! ~ thanks ja

    • Agree don’t do it use your own tissue facia for sling.

  4. Mary pat says:
