Hello @Beckyish and very sorry to hear of your experience. It’s ghastly and all the more shocking for you not being given sufficient information to make an informed decision to consent to treatment, something that is your legal right. I shudder at your testimony ‘The pain was unbearable … a struggled to cope, the surgeon had to stop to ask me to try and relax to allow him to continue.’ Sounds absolutely barbaric.
Thank you for sharing your insights. We are collating these experiences to press ahead the need for reform, see our call for action blog, details below. It also links to the CAPH, a campaign and support group who you may wish to get in touch with, lovely women and we support them as much as we can.
Thank you again for sharing
