any help with the surveys posted above will be very appreciated......let's report what doctors appear not to have reported and studied......autoimmune issues, and foreign body response causing mesh degradation which causes exacerbated chronic inflammation which appears to cause mesh recipients higher rates of autoimmune issues.....
Would be more than happy to do your survey but your link just takes me to the Face Book survey page. Where do I need to go from there? Thanks.....

Fact or Opinon? Has any one else gone thru this? Or notice, are local area surgeons backing out of doing hernia surgeries? Ok this is our nightmare. Ok wife been having pain swelling in porthole area from tine to time since 2010, from lap surgery. Been to her first home, local surgeon that did refer her to another surgeon that did do the surgeon. Yet he told her that if problems came up call appointment etc... See has gone back 2 times, ok he sat up for her to have Ct Scan back on 2/26 /13. Done, ok she went picked up a cd of ct scan the written report wasn't ready. They said they would type up mail. Ok she hasn't received yet. so she called Med Record Depart. Oh we just now got it done mailed should receive Weds. Nope. Yet the home surgeon office called her that they received the ct scan report, he went over it, had office call her that he was canceling his appointment with her to read the finding. Yet he also told her that no other local surgeon would not touch her! So now he he saying that they are not competent, or is judging their competence or is their something else going on? Refering to the mesh lawsuit? I do know that our county health department will not look at anyone with already hernia surgery. Sure makes one wonder whats going on behind small own health?

<quoted text> Hello Sonia, no, Mini-Me has not been back on the site. I had a long talk with Bruce about the Surgisis mesh. 1. Surgisis is probably the best mesh on the market today when dealing with a patient with infection problems.( I can hear you yelling from here, Sonia!) 2. There is a history of increased infection post operative with Surgisis. But what the "community" is thinking is that the infection was already in the body before Surgisis was installed and that when the surgeon went in he spread that infection. The infection may have been in a stasis or non viable UNTIL you were operated on. The infection took off, your weakened immune system was not ready for the onslaught and the Surgisis became a petry dish for the infection. Although the Sugisis is made from the Pigs intestinal tract the process that makes Surgisis into a mesh product kills any infections within the cell structure. That being said, there is the possibility that because of the location of implant, type and location of infection, immune system weakness AND the possibility of virus's and microbes in the OPERATIVE ROOM that could be introduced during surgery plus the surgeon ( you had some interesting descriptives of him!) possibly doing something wrong could lead up to what you are dealing with now. Unlike a lot of Mesh products Surgisis actually has a better "track" record that most others. Looking on the internet about Surgisis though there is a remarkable amount of infections in Australia as compared to the United States. There is a blog site for women in Australia who are suffering from Gyno/Vaginal meshs and Surgisis is mention in the forefront. There may be a correlation to those infections and who or where the surgeries were done. Its not much Sonia but I hope it gives you some thoughts as to other possibilities. As always Dear Lady, I send my Best Wishes.......
Hello sweet lady (you are a lady?), thank you very much for your effort. If I am not streching the friendship, could you please ask Bruce, if this Surgisis and I have taken on board all that you have said, because it is totally absorbed by your system that is cells, tissue etc, whatever was or is breading on that mesh or perhaps this was a contaminated batch (it does happen, and if anything happens it is usually me who gets it, never a dull moment), whether it can contaminate or infect your blood?. This is the latest I have to see a blood specialist. Hope you are feeling well.
Hey have you noted that Alt Meshed... has not made an apperance. I know I was harsh on that person, but really he/she got me that angry, and particularly targeting you, I had to say something, and I dont mince my words.
Kindest regards Soniaxxxxx

Hi Bruce and All Meshed Up. Just one more question please. I had an MRI, X-ray of the abdomen, pelvis etc, waiting on results and next week I see the blood specialist. I took on board everything you said and it is logical. What puzzels me is that I have an infection in the abdomen/pelvis and now the blood. Is it also possible that the surgeon pierced my bowel, and therefore there is leakage into my abdomen etc. By your experience Bruce how do they determine what sort of infection/disease I actually have and how do they treat it? I know one way is anti-biotics and I have been on pencilin based anti-biotics for the past six months. The doctor took me off them as he was worried about the liver, but I got the worst possible pain (and I am used to chronic pain), and my abdomen swelled up like I was 9 months pregnant I was physically holding it and then went to bed on Saturday and woke up Sunday. As soon as I was back on them the pain eased, but I was still running a fever. I know you guys have your own problems but when you get a chance, your advice is very important. Kindest regards Soniaxxx

Well I would not have picked it, but nevertheless you are a very kind and caring person. I will talk to you later and keep you posted of the test results. One other thing, I am going down the track of the class action, and by reading all the blogs and especially yours, it is like pusing sh... up a hill. I also enquired about suing Dr Death for negligence but the two solicitors I spoke to won't take it on. I would be grateful for your input. Kindest regards Sonia.

Sorry about spelling errors above post, AMU I mistakenly spam your post, instaed of my own. post 7450-7452. Sorry about that,don't mean ruff up any feather's. Any way I was trying to post from General Surgery News of Hernia etc.... Like I tryed to post yesterday, we got phone call yesterday where wife's we call (him her home local surgeon) for he was surgeon she saw before all referals. Any way the call said that he looked at the scan, report and canceled their appointment for the 12th, to go over report. In which we also have copy of, not the written report. Thats being mailed by pony express,or peigion carrier don't know which. Oh wait wife called med record department they hadn't written report yet. But yet all was done fax to the surgeon, last week. Yet he wouldn't tell her what all scan etc reads. He forward to AUB they will do thr rest. It pissed me off I called his office said I want know what they said. His nurse came on said their was another hernia. All BS , that didn't need be. Wife not a nurse etc.. but we looked at cd of scan and knew it was their, we compared it to online hernia scans. Yet why all the BS from him isn't called for!!!!! Again sorry for the judge spam. I got my hand slaped for it.

I'm really upset! Don't know if I will ever get over this being labeled a spammer. No Problemo, Chuck! I figured it was something like that. As far as your wife goes and the lack of info from the surgeon....It makes sense if you are the surgeon....."Oh crap...another hernia...better talk to my lawyer BEFORE I talk to the patient. She won't mind the delay". Or something like that. Dr.'s are scared about being blamed for mesh damage. Whether it IS their fault or not. The manufacturers who give these Dr.'s "deals" and under the counter cash to use their products will turn on the Dr. in a New York minute if they smell a lawsuit. The Dr. ends up being the face of mesh and the representative of the manufacturer whether they want to or not. So when there is a problem the Dr. ends up in court because all the manufacturer has to say is " They did not follow the implant instructions". And then the victim is forgotten while they argue away in court.

TO ALL THE WOMEN SIGNING UP FOR LAWSUITS AGAINST THE GYNO/VAGINAL MESHS/MANUFACTURERS: Please take note and read through the files for MDL 1842 if you want a quick idea of what you are going to go through with your lawsuit. Especially if the Motley crew gets involved. This is a sad testimate to all of us who would want some justice to what has been done to us. Until the FDA comes out and admits that mesh products ARE dangerous no matter what they are made of and what they are used for we will not be taken seriously in court. And we won't be able to get good representation either until the FDA comes clean because its too damn hard and too expensive to get a case going in our court system today. So we end up depending on vultures.

Hi Lin, the surgeons secretary wasn't a "Office/Practice" Manager, and was she rude, abusive, arrogant etc. I find this disgusting and a breach of doctor/patient privacy that the secretary is giving you the results and not an appointment to see the quack and he tell you. I beleive that under the Privacy Act (Australia) this should occur. I would stand you ground and keep pestering them for an appointment. It sounds that this surgeon is also a chicken shit coward the same as Surgeon Death, he could not face me but sent in his Office Manager and what a fuc....bitch she was. Best of Luck Sonia
