Just wondering whether any ladies out there have had a mesh sling fitted as a bladder repair. I had my Johnson & Johnson's Gynecare Mesh fitted in 2003 and it was taken off the market this year. One of the safety concerns is that the chemicals in the material of the mesh might leach into the body and trigger or aggravate auto-immune problems. My health problems started shortly after it was fitted in 2003 but my APS wasn’t diagnosed until 2008. I would like to hear about any experiences –positive or negative.
