Yep, That is right, this blog is for YOU for anyone who might be suffering from vaginal mesh, bladder sling mesh, also known as TVT-O or TVT, anyone with any kind of MESH in them. You know you may not even know you have it in you. You may have had bladder prolapse, or some other form of organ prolapse such as rectum prolapse, vaginal vault prolapse, you might have heard your Dr or a friend say Pelvic Organ Prolapse or no prolapse at all.
Perhaps you were leaking on your self, when you would move, couch, sit or sneeze and this became a problem for you and you went to the your DR. and then fixed you right up! or so you thought? No matter if it was a prolapse or leaking urine, which is Stress Urinary Incontinence or even hernia repair, the fact of the matter is that you have this awful stuff inside of you that can cause havoc in you lives.
It can cause SEVERE pain, sickness/infections, just a myriad of problems and sadly many people are not finding about it until now and many still don’t know and many do not know they even have it in them. We are not on some registry list that sent us an alert notice from the FDA to let us know, Hey this is going on, you might want to get this checked out back when they first saw a problem. They still let this type of mesh on the market and to be used on Humans. It is distasteful!
The purpose of my blog is to be a voice, while at this moment, I can’t do much, I still have my voice and I can use it. I can speak of my problems. I can encourage others. I am not out to do this for money or fame. I am strictly out here to help others that are in my shoes who may think they are alone with no place to turn. This is also a therapeutic tool for me, hoping that by getting my words out that I will feel better and if by doing that, I can help someone than that is just even better.
So if you are one of us that are in pain, have the mesh, maybe you are not sure, just know that you are not alone. You can leave comments here, I read this, you can email me and I will get back to you. I will try to help the best way I can.
