Following the article in last week’s Sunday Mail which reported on the debilitating complications suffered by a number of women following surgery using mesh implants, this week’s story reveals how the paper has been contacted by many more women experiencing complications.
The news story suggests the issue could be a potential scandal after scores of NHS patients contacted the paper last week saying they had suffered similar problems after operations using polypropylene mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress incontinence.
Alex Neil, Health Secretary for Scotland, has been urged to meet over 100 Scots women whose lives have been affected by synthetic mesh. Shadow Health Minister Jackie Baillie said she was shocked at the numbers. She has called for clear and decisive action from the Scottish Government.
Two Scottish law firms are reported to have received numerous enquiries regarding legal action for mesh complications.
