I would tell you not to cry but instead I will tell you that I am crying with you. I am not new to the symptoms but new to the diagnosis. I am home alone for the first time in more than two weeks and I am so very sad. Sad for not only myself but for all of us. I am sad for you that you are so new to all of this. Now, as you have found, you are not alone! You have came to a very good place. Hope has really been through the wringer and has came out fighting! She is fighting for all of us, so may you feel some comfort in your darkest time so far. Welcome to your support team!
It states that you are in California. I know I speak for many when I say: "Please say you are going to see Dr. Raz!!" Yes, there are other surgeons that are very, very good but since you are on that side of the country, he is the one I pray you are going to. My advice would be to call the office of which ever doctor you are seeing and ask if they do blood work for auto-immune disorders. Chances are, they don't. I only say that because it is the luck of the mesh victim. We must see countless doctors in order to pin down all the problems. ANA is an antinuclear antibody test. It helps screen for auto-immune disorders. Any general practice doctor can order it. There will many blood test. You have found an explant surgeon and that is one of the most important things you will do in your life.
Hope is a very caring person and seems to be very genuine. She will be able to tell you so much more about the feet and hands turning. That is symptoms of Raynauds and it needs to be addressed as soon as possible as does everything else.
I know it all seems endless and it is so very painful to accept and endure but endure you can do! Again, you have come to a good place.
May you be touched by The Hand of God and receive comfort.

I'd like to see the evidence and how they conclusively proved a causal link between the mesh and autoimmune disease. There are many etiologies for autoimmune diseases and to ascribe one specific cause is difficult to prove scientifically. Vaccines are also purported to cause autoimmune disorders and the link to specific immunoglobulins and autoantibodies has been identified so how do you know that the autoimmune disease was caused by the mesh instead of vaccines, which everyone has had in their lifetime? I don't quite understand why you are taking offense to a scientific question. It could be because maybe you are the one full of it.
You may be right about some of your scientific chattering but me let tell you that you are very wrong about "everyone having" because I have never had! My family religious beliefs were able to prevent those dangerous drugs being put into me! Now tell me, how could I possibly have lupus from vaccines when I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY VACCINES!!!? Maybe like the rest of us, she took offense to the attitude that dozens of pre-mesh women were healthy with zero signs of anything we as post-mesh are now being diagnosed with. Are you going to tell us that the doctors all over the US (so far) are wrong when they document the cause of auto-immune disorders are from mesh? Would you be so kind as to tell us which pharmaceutical lab you live in because you have the appearance of a test rat. Stop offending us and return to your cage you call work and we won't disturb you.

If you want some 'evidence' come and stay with me for a few days, get up at everyday between 3 and 4AM because you can't sleep through the pain and the cramps, eat a percocet and a muscle relaxer or breakfast in the hope that they will kick in in enough time to enable me to walk to my car, sit in the same position for an hour and 45 min. commute, and (maybe) work through the day without going to my car and napping for lunch, trying to hide my hands because i don't know how to explain why they are greyish blue, having co-workers think I'm lazy because I am to embarassed about falling when I try the stairs - come on, I am more than happy to share my current state with you - you'll be a believer. My husband could use a break from holding me in the morning, while I am curled in a fetal position, crying - my life has been destroyed - I have had every illness that you can think of since this implant; eColi infection, pnuemonia 2X., the flu, and (most amazing of all, given my age) the chicken pox. You think that more evidence needs to be provided to show the correlation? I think someone needs to come up with some research to answer 'Why, since this thing was put into my body, has this all happened to a previously very healthy, very active woman?' Prior to that surgery I was on a competitive weight lifting team, played pickup basketball at my local YMCA, was a softball coach for 11 years, and a kickboxer -I have been sick EVERY day since that implant ???

I have heard of serious complications like device erosion, internal bleeding, vaginal pain, and organ perforation from mesh devices but I haven't realized that they also have the potential to cause auto-immune diseases until I bumped into your story here. This would greatly help others who have had meshes or bladder slings implanted and somehow developed an auto-immune disease that could be related to the mesh. There is also relevant information at http://www.bladderslingrecall.us that could be of great help to people concerned and interested.

Hope,
I am sitting in my bed (where I spend all of my time when I am not trying to work). I am crying.
I had a partial hysterectomy and a bladder sling implanted - you guessed it, Prolene Mesh. This occurred in June 2012.
Why am I crying? It's taken me forever to find this site and people with my symptoms - I truly thought I had gone off the deep end.
Since the surgery I have been hospitalized for an eColi infection picked up during the surgery, I was told I had a severe vitamin D deficiency, I have been sick continuously since the surgery, I have had two spinal injection series ( 13 injections and counting) because I got to the point where I couldn't walk and was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, I have seen more Dr's in these last 7 months than in my entire life. Recently, after trying to work again, I end the day with a severe headache, fever, and so sleepy I want to pull the car over and shut my eyes. Around two months ago I noticed that my feet were turning blue, a couple of weeks ago my fingers started turning blue, there are blotchy veiny reddish purple spots all over me - its as if my veins can be seen through my skin.
I have searched for the combination of symptoms with pelvic organ prolapse and bladder sling and finally found you - you have no idea how grateful I am at this moment. I am finally seeing a surgeon who is supposed to be an expert in pelvic prolapse, mesh implants, etc. I have documented everything, even took photos of hands and feet. Would it be outrageous to ask for specific testing? Any advice or words of guidance you can offer would be appreciated - although, as I said, already grateful. Thank you so much - I will post again after Tuesday
I am so happy that you found this site, and that you now know you are not crazy nor are you alone. It's people like you that make me glad I have had the courage to speak up and share my problems no matter how embarrassing writing about my incontenance or privates may be.
You need to ask you doctor to do a ANA test on you for Lupus. If that test is positive (which I hope it is not) you will need to go to a Rheumatologist for a more specific series of blood tests used to test for various auto-immune diseases. The doctor will tell you what you need to know after the tests come back. The first test are an ANA test and checking you thyroid may be a good idea as well. Email me at HPagano@HopeFundingGroup.com and send me your contact info if you wish to speak privately.

Thanks Mesh Exp!!! If the rat works in the lab then they already have all the scientific evidence they need as you know damn well Big Pharm knows what, how and why the mesh is giving people biochemical reactions. I am not pretending to be a rocket scientist as I am far from it, but I can tell you 1+1=2. If there is away I can block this person from this thread please let me know how as it really is annoying.

Hopeful don't waste your time explaining yourself to someone who is merely fishing around with some messed up alterior motive. How old are you? How long have you had the implant.
Email me please at HPagano@HopeFundingGroup.com so we can exchange personal contact. I am happy to speak with you. Don't respond to these strangers and hopefully they will go away. I am trying to see if there is a way to block people like Prolene off the thread.

I started searching for Dr. Raz and found him in LA - i am in SF. but, all my luck is not bad - the surgeon I am seeing on Tuesday is a contributor to the lastest book he wrote! I am amazed at the level of excitement I can have about a Dr's appointment. I know that I may find out some of what is going is permanent but, to finally speak with someone who will understand what is happening to me is going to be so wonderful after months of hearing,'not my problem, not my speciality, you need to go see this other Dr.' I am learning to take things as they come - somedays I do not allow myself to do research, somedays I find myself self-diagnosing - I bet you know what I mean, sigh... my spirits have been so lifted by this site.

I am so glad that you found this group as well. I just came across it and it has changed so much for me. I dont feel like I am going nuts with all of these horrible things that seem to be happening to me on a frequent basis. To know there are others just like yourself ifnot in worse shape,you realize that there is hope. And I also feel the support rom everyone here is fantastic. Sad that we all have to be here, but imagine if there was no internet? This would be the hardest thing to research without a computer.I am thankful for all of you being here with your information and support

I am not sure but will ask my son. He works for a computer place that builds programs. I wonder if it would do any good to hit the "report" option? I haven't because I don't know what would happen but it couldn't hurt I guess. You have started a good thing here and it is a shame that trolls come here to start trouble and upset us. It's not like we don't have enough to worry about already. Maybe too, if we ignore them, they will just go away. I just feel that they must work for one of the makers.

To Prolene and/or any other Trolls who come on here to bully and discredit my sister and the women here suffering. You are an anonymous coward. My sister is brave beyond your comprehension and out in the open. She has put herself out there on behalf of helping others and making people aware of her experience. What have you done? You hide behind the name "prolene" and make false assumptions. I can make assumptions too, more accurate assumptions! I assume, by your posts, you're somehow involved in helping to approve or insert these torture devices into people. You have knowingly profited off of the pain of those harmed by this device and concerned you might be exposed and held accountable. I find your appearance here a compliment to my sister and a good sign that she is a concern to you.
All of the women who post here have suffered a trauma that no one should ever have to experience. The fact they have the courage and energy to post says much about their strength and incredible spirit. They deserve a safe place to share without your apathy. Our research is not your concern. Whether you believe it or not, no one here cares. These women are living the proof. No one is "full of it". THEY are the EVIDENCE! No one needs your "scientific" questions or a debate on vaccines. The proof, are the stories of the brave women on here who share the truth of their side effects, after having this mesh implanted. Speaking out on side effects that no one legally made them aware could happen before surgery and left them to put the pieces together of what is occurring to them on their own, after. A living nightmare. They have experienced enough of the likes of "you" in trying to heal and seek out help. I'll tell you what. I learned from my sister they're still using the mesh used on her, in surgeries. Why don't we hook you up with her original surgeon and have it inserted in you so you can have a better understanding and test your vaccine theory. You won't need to cite any scientific papers, as you'll be provided with your own evidence. Better yet, why not have it implanted into your sister, so you can watch the suffering as I did, powerless to help. How dare you speak to my sister as you did. You have no idea this kind of pain and may you never have to know or watch someone you love go through it.

I am glad you are here and that you are seeking the support of Doctors, family and friends. If you wish to talk sometime email me your number and I will give you a call. Sometimes it just helps to talk to other people who can relate to what you are going through just to remind you that you are in fact sick and not nuts. My email is hpagano@hopefundinggroup.com. Feel free to use it. I run my own small business in between being sick so I might not be able to call you back right away, but I will call if you need a friend who is walking in similar steps to your own.
Try not to be depressed, and if it continues tell your doctor how you are feeling to see if they can help.
Hanging in there. Did they prescribe you medicine for your Lupus? do you still have the Mesh impant or was it removed?
What phone provider do you have? I actually don't have a phone except a cell that is provided by hubbies employer. We have ATT and so do my kids so I haven't really thought about a home phone. I will email you again because there are just some things too personal to share with the lab rat. I do still have mesh. No cutting, loosening, or partial removal. It will not be touched until just for the sake of having it in records. They will take it all at once if possible. My husbands insurance would not cover Dr. Raz or Dr. Zimmern and now they have changed it. He just got his new card and I simply haven't felt like looking into who and what they cover. There are no removal doctors here that I have found. Other than vitamin D, they put me on a drug called predizone. I think it is making me sick. I have had a headache since shortly after implant but now I get really sick at my stomach and there is a different kind of headache. That may not make since but then none of this does. I am fighting the depression and not having much luck. She did tell me that she wanted to start with as few meds as possible to see what I can tolerate and how it works. She wants to start treating the lupus before she treats the depression. I am going to call office tomorrow to see if I should be concerned with sick stomach and new headache. Thank you for your support. I hope your week is bearable.

I have an idea. Why don't you get the mesh implanted in yourself or someone you really care about and see what happens within a year. Then for an added bonus and just to torture yourself or your loved one ten times more have it removed. After you do that feel free to ask me anything you want. Until the take your act somewhere else.

My health insurance company which i have the priveledge of paying $1569 per month for coverage for me and my fanily and of course my doctor was not covered under my paln, however the hospital was so I decided I needed to find the room on one of my credit cards and just pay the doctor the portion my insurance was paying for. I got the mesh in the first place as it was all my insurance company would cover (another reason I thought the mesh must have been made safe, but I wasn't taking any chances when havingthis crap removed. I understood that having the mesh removed was a much more dangerous surgery than having it put in and that I may not get a second chance to have this removed. I suggest anyone who has to get the mesh removed get it removed by a skilled professional who has done many of these surgeries successfully. Most important don't cut corners, beg, borrow, don't steal though, but do have the Mesh removed as soonas possible.
Keep in touch.

Well, I had my appointment with the SF surgeon yesterday and, it was somewhat disappointing. I created, and had added to my file, a document outlining briefly; what had got me to her, what I was currently being treated for (spine), and what my current symptoms are.
I was seen and examined by the nurse practitioner - not the Dr.- I was told that - we only deal with the urological parts of this - nothing else. In order to find out what is causing the other symptoms I must go and get a primary physician to manage this. I have been scheduled for a cystoscopy. I have another problem that is completely freaking me out - despite requests from 4 Dr's - I signed the forms myself - none of my records are being released from my original surgeon. He actually sent one Dr. an overview of a lawsuit I was involved in several years ago with a pharmacy for giving me the wrong medication - with VERY bad reaction I might add - I am not kidding. I called his office yesterday and asked why the requests had not been answered - I was told that they had faxed ' everything we have'. I asked for them to send the entire record to me and I was told that they would do that - for $85.00. I am not making any of this up - I cannot believe what is happening to me - I am lost and I need to stop believing that some Dr is going to suddenly look at me and say,'I know what we need to do, we're going to work together to find out what is going on and, here is our plan.' life sucks right now -

Don't give up. Call your state's Department of Health and file a claim against the doctor and report him or her for not properly releasing your documents. It is a doctors standard procedure to charge approximately 75 cents per page if you want your records. It's their way of discouraging you from pursing information that is rightfully yours. The laws should be changed to require doctors to have records scanned to a PDF format so that they can't charge the ridiculous fees for records thay give to lawyers for free. Get some rest and start fresh tomorrow, and find a Urogynecolgist and a Rheumatologist who are better qualified to diagnose and help you.
Keep your chin up.

Prolene...See if this is answers some of your questions about auto immune diseases and mesh http://tvtno.org/the-chemical-contribution-to... ..The chemicals in mesh is downright poison and these pages will explain that for you.
What Hope and thousands of women suffer from is the result of a toxic compound of chemicals that attack not only the basic immune system but also the thyroid and NK cells that fights cancer in the body.
I also suffered greatly from the toxic effects from mesh and have made it my life's goal to seek and find the answers for myself and to save other women that suffered like Hope and I did.
I have a scientist also working on a study for me that when completed I would be delighted to share with you.
Thank you hope for this Topix page, it is essential that the auto immune issues resulting from mesh get recognized!

Someone please help. I had a mesh sling put in I think in 2005/06 after a hystorectomy. I have had so much lower abdomenal pain (like a monthly period cramps), it is gradually getting worse. I am not sure if this is a symptom that anyone else is experiencing. I just want to know if this is a symptom.
