  1. Hello to admin at tvtinfo.

    Can I put this on your information page, so that many of your subscribers read this via your email reminders, please?
    This is from Kath Sansom’s FB page “Sling the mesh”. I have sent mine through on her photography email address, because I did not want to have it on FB. Consider sending yours. Get others you know to write to her. Kath at Evolution Photography It is really important that as many mesh victims come forward so that the MP , Steve Barclay, can create more awareness on mesh in Government. See below.
    Kind regards
    Ingrid h. xx

    URGENT: I am compiling a list of how long it took for your mesh complications to cut in to use as evidence for a forthcoming MP meeting. Please can you let me know your date of mesh insertion, the date you noticed problems and what those problems were. Also how many mesh removal ops you have had, if any, to fix it. Please keep as brief as possible. I am going to print it off as a roll call of REAL people with REAL lives that have been ruined. Thank you x
