I was watching a morning news program on BBC when they started talking about mesh implants, how the procedure has been probablematic for thousands of people. I have a mesh implant which was painful at first, I could actually feel something sharp pricking me but then it gradually got absorbed and I never gave it another thought. But today, I heard a woman on the BBC program describe her experience post mesh implant. She said she began getting one autoimmune condition after another, she put two and two together and came to the conclusion that it was all due to the mesh surgery. I then Googled and found there is a lot written on the subject. I'm kind of freaking out because having the mesh removed must be quite complicated and probably not covered by the Spanish health system.
In the UK, this type of surgery has been reduced to very special circumstances, the reason for the special report on BBC today.
It will be interesting to see if there are more people on here that have had mesh implants.
