Our mission is to help women and men who suspect the problems they are having is due to mesh. The practice of medicine has changed over my lifetime and today’s doctors are under pressure from all directions and, sometimes, do not have our best interests at heart. Surgical implants for bladder problems can maim, hobble, cripple or kill but surgeons keep putting them in because they receive their information from salesmen these days. The sales representative tell the physicians that the risk of mesh implants is low and most complications are due to something else. The manufacturers, part of “Big Pharma” even blame the surgeons when things go wrong. We’ve listened to patients, looked at some very convincing studies in highly respected medical journals, and discovered that the risk is much higher than doctors are telling their patients and the list of complications is, indeed, very long. This site is dedicated helping patients find out what is happening, surgeons who will help, and to offer support. Primum non nocere (First, do no harm).
