Recommendation for vaginal mesh operations to be banned

Vaginal mesh is currently used in procedures to repair the vagina, womb, bowel or bladder which may have prolapsed after childbirth.

The mesh can cut into internal organs leaving some women in permanent pain, unable to walk, work or have sex.

Doctors argue that such repairs can and should be carried out using the woman’s own tissue which would avoid these issues.

In the past 10 years approximately 100,000 women have been given mesh implants and 1 in 11 experience problems.

The mesh is also used routinely in hernia repairs and can result in chronic abdominal pain in men and women.

If you have received a mesh implant and are suffering as a result please contact Jane Rogers on 02920 456780 for a free informal chat.
