Helloall. I run a campaign and support group for women who are suffering chronic pain after hhving what's called a TVT or TVTO mesh bladder sling inserted to fix incontinence
It works by supporting weakened pelvic floor muscles but for some women it can cause lifelong terrible pain in the pelvis , legs, groin.lower back along with allergic reactions to the plastic material which the mesh is made from.
I would like to ask the pelvic specialists why a material that is not inert (ie it can erode and leach toxins) is implanted into a clean contaminated field?
Also any advice for women suffering chronic pelvic pain?
I would also like to reach out to any other women on here and urge you to do your research on pelvic slings for prolapse or incontinence before agreeing to such a procedure as I do not believe the benefits outweigh the risks.
You can find my campaign Sling The Mesb on Facebook or Twiiter . Thanks x
