good morning i just read this article regarding the mesh implant and am myself going through some complications i think could be from the same procedure. 4 years ago this February i had this same surgery and since then experience sharp leg pain all the way down to my ankles, i can't walk or move my legs when this occurs, i also have been experiencing really bad stomach and lower abdominal pain that is extremely painful, hunched over pain. I have had to quit my job as of last may because i can't sit or stand for very long at a time, i don't drive any more because if i get a pain in my legs i am afraid of hurting someone or myself because i can't apply the breaks. life as i know it has changed 100 percent i'm not able to be independant anymore and its really hard to depend on others all the time. not really sure what to do or where to turn. thanks for taking an interest in this Rhonda oh one more thing i should add is that i go to the washroom more often than ever after this surgery

You should get a hold of Paul Miller, Asprey's lawyer, and see if others are as affected as you two.

It's best that you talk to your surgeon and see what he or she can do to resolve this. If in any case that your pain may have been caused by the implant, consult legal advisors, who I think may also be contacted online, on how to put up a legal claim. I also came across some articles on the net that could give you more info on this. Try checking bladderslingrecall.us

My thoughts and prayers go out to Christine and all the other women who are suffering incredible pain because of transvaginal mesh. I read somewhere that most of the women affected by vaginal mesh complications filed legal action against the manufacturer of vaginal mesh. You may visit this site to gather more information and hopefully they could help you http://www.meshlawsuithub.com .

I think it's ironic that doctors would put a mess netting in a place accused of being fishy.
