I'm All Meshed Up

Bladder Mesh Surgery Gone Wrong

For all that I am and all that I do, I do it to stop Mesh from invading your lives….

 

Today I am going to keep it short and to the point from my heart to yours.

 

The past few days have  been a whirlwind of pain but also rebirth for me. The emails and phone calls I received after my post the other day have been amazing and uplifting. I have learned that through my pain I am making a difference and helping others and that was my goal from day one of this blog journey. 


Everyday I get emails from women  telling their painful and very personal mesh stories and it quite literally breaks my heart and I cry almost every day reading their stories but it is through this pain we shall emerge victorious. If I could reach out and hold these women tight and walk alongside them in their journey, I would but that is unrealistic so I reach out to them via my blog telling of my own very personal mesh story and how it has affected me not only physically but emotionally.  


In the short time since I started my blog, a month I think, I have had FOUR women write me to say they have cancelled their bladder surgery….that in itself is overwhelmingly amazing!  It makes me feel for every tear I shed for the women who were not so fortunate there is also a tear of great joy and pride for the women I may have saved from a life of pain and misery.


I do not do this alone, what all of you reading this blog do not know is that behind the scenes there are a team of us working together diligently to end the plight of mesh. We have reached out to each other and formed  a bond that signifies we are bound together by mesh but, we will set each other free by loving and embracing not only our group but all the rest of you who are out there in the world of mesh floundering around in a sea of pain and anger.  We do what we do out of love and respect for all of you who so openly and honestly share your stories.


So today I feel content in the knowledge that we are making a difference albeit one small pebble at a time, which will eventually turn in to one very large boulder that NO on can ignore! We will make more noise than anyone would ever expect us to make…

Here’s hoping you will “mesh” with me!!!!!

This is just a quick post to say that I am working diligently on this blog trying to get information out to those who are suffering from the repercussions of bladder sling surgery.

I am going to be putting a list of resources together and will add them to my blog over the next few days. I will admit I am technologically challenged so I am relying on help from some of my wonderful “meshie” friends!!!!

When I started this blog it was with the intention of just telling my story but the more I thought about it the more I realized how selfish that is. I am only able to blog about this topic because of some wonderful people I have recently met through various websites regarding TransVaginal Mesh. I literally went to the google search engine and plunked in various different ways of getting mesh info and  it was mind-boggling what came up. From that moment I had opened up my “Pandora’s Box” and here I am today setting up my own blog to reach out to the people who so badly need information on this medical crisis.

So I ask that you be patient with me while I learn all the new technology I will need to know in order to provide an informative blog to you all. I look forward to meeting some wonderful people whom I hope will become apart of my “mesh” family…its a shame we are all brought together through such adversity…ironically it will be that adversity that will forge and bind life long friendships.

So here I am saying I am officially putting myself and my story out to you in hopes that I can make your life just a little bit brighter by providing you with the resources you will need in order to put your life back together after the horrors of mesh bladder slings.
