Like so many, this woman has been told not to speak up. We respect that. It is possible her case will go to trial and she will be deposed. So she will remain anonymous. If you have any helpful doctors in the Northeast, please let her know. She is suffering…Your comments are welcome!
I, like so many others, have been, and continue to, go thru HELL. I am in my 40’s now and have to live w chronic renal failure, and anemia that began in January after another major corrective surgery.
I am currently running on the low side again, and under doctors care. This will continue forever, anything, such as future surgeries may shut my kidneys down.
This is in addition to the MULTITUDE of other issues that began quite literally, the day after my implant. I have lost count on the number of uti/kidney infections that I have endured. Those infections have filled my kidneys with infection stones, blasting failed and I deal w constant kidney pain from the many stones and damage. I have had 6 corrective surgeries to date, I have another procedure this week to remove a large pelvic hematoma…looks like I have had some internal bleeding. My guess is pieces of the POISON is causing more internal damage.
This bleed/hematoma blasted thru my abdomen with such force I felt like My insides were tearing, and I actually developed a large bruise on my lower abdomen. About two months after my implant I developed a form of psoriatic rheumatoid arthritis where EVERY SINGLE joint in my entire body swelled , and were so painful I could not move, this flares constantly. I have nerve damage and constant pain. I’ve had the mesh wear thru my vagina multiple times, so you can feel it, any sort of intimacy with me is dangerous…who wants that?!
I am now going thru a difficult divorce…and the financial hardships…I go to work everyday, but this has effected my work performance and then the constant doctors appts…my employers think I need to file disability, I guess that’s a nice way of saying we don’t want you anymore?
All this from mesh. I had two issues taken care of with my implant, I had a cystocele and a rectocele repaired. The only concern, or worry, was about the rectocele because this would be a 2nd repair and he was worried about which “fix” to go with. The cystocele was nothing, “get the sling and you’re good to go”. I had to have my first corrective surgery just two months later at which point this surgeon told me that my issues were “above his realm of expertise” and I needed to find a new doctor. How nice. Basically, he implanted me with POISON and then set me free. This needs to STOP, not one more.
And for those of us that have been victimized by these mesh makers, we need help. I don’t want to live like this. I wasn’t given a choice, or information. I want this POISON out of me, I have too much living left to do.
