The use of pelvic mesh was paused in the UK in 2018 after some patients developed complications and severe pain following the treatment. In this report for CNA, a Singapore-based news channel, Kath Sansom, founder of campaign group Sling The Mesh, talks about the severe pain and life-changing side effects she experienced after pelvic mesh surgery.
The report highlights the risks associated with mesh removal surgery, the fact that women harmed by mesh have been dismissed and ignored by the healthcare system, and concerns that the number of patients who experience complications from pelvic mesh has been underestimated. It also outlines the need for stronger medical device regulation in the UK, and looks at issues with compensation and redress for patients harmed by mesh.
