  • UK mesh (female) “fight back”, parallels to hernia mesh same responses etc

    Posted by William Bryant on November 2, 2021 at 6:00 am

    Apparently it was known as early as 2007 that 1 in 10 women would suffer but mesh was still used.

    Any of this sounds familiar? It’s all in the head, imaginary. It is safe, 90 to 95 percent success rate. Etc etc.

    And if 1 in 10 wasn’t bad enough, the claimed reality is actually 3 or 4 in 10 women suffer after mesh inserts.

    Additionally Im not sure if it was in this article or another where it pointed out that one manufacturer knew but carried on anyway (Johnson and Johnson I believe).

    Does anyone know why, if it isn’t, now, deemed safe enough for female bladder/vaginal repairs, it is deemed ‘safe’ for other body repairs.

    It would seem obvious, to a layperson, that if can cause bad effects in one sex and for one type of repair, it will for both sexes and all repairs.

    Less testing than medicines! I just wasn’t aware of that, Good Intentions. I’d always thought they’d be vigorous testing and regulations in place.

    It’s the money. And it’s not just mesh. The corporations have infiltrated the medical profession. Medicine is a business.

    Thanks Johnso,

    I didn’t know any of that so appreciate the post and links.

    It is still baffling as to why when withdrawn, paused I think is the UK phrase, for one kind of problem it is not withdrawn/paused totally. Apart from the money side.

    And the side stepping of usual safety testing is just as bad.

    I don’t have Netflix so I can’t help you with the title of the documentary that Alphey is referring to.

    I assume you have watched the BBC’s documentaries on surgical mesh but you may not have seen CTV’s W5 documentary “Mesh Misgivings”. It originally aired in 2017 and was updated in 2018 after the tragic death of Chrissy Brajcic. I believe Dr. Morrison who was interviewed in the documentary recently retired.

    Here is a Youtube link to the video:

    Sorry it does not look like the link I posted works. If you are interested in watching it you can always do a search.

    I wish I could get 1 euro for each time I read a comment by someone appalled by the state of affairs in the medical industry (notice the word industry, it should be telling:)…

    BTW there is a Netflix documentary about mesh, I recommend watching it (disclaimer: you will be angry afterwards)
