"My mesh operation has not worked"

About: New Victoria Hospital / Gynaecology Clinic

(as the patient),

During my last appointment to see my consultant which I did not as it was another consultant at the new Victoria infirmary Glasgow I told the consultant that my mesh was cutting my husbands penis. The consultant said I would have to get an internal. The consultant went for a nurse and spoke to the consultant I was supposed to and came back done an internal then in came my original consultant and done another internal I was in agony afterwards and have been told my mesh operation has not worked I was offered the same procedure again I refused. I have another appointment in 2015 for video dynamics.

I work in a small team in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde which seeks to involve patients and carers in the work of the NHS. The biggest part of my role is in managing feedback projects across the Board area, one of which is Patient Opinion. It is my job to give our patients and carers the opportunity to give us feedback, and to make sure that this is passed to the right people to help us improve the services we provide.

Dear ramona dawn,

Thank you for getting in touch to share the experience you have had following this procedure, I am really sorry to hear about the negative impact this has had on you. As you may have seen, other women have shared similar experiences on this site and I understand that this matter is currently under review by the Scottish Government. I'm sure that further details about this review will be provided here by the Scottish Government and I hope that this will provide you with some further information.
