Hi had TVT inserted April 2010, woke screaming in pain collapsed in toilet following morning, but sent home anyway.
I had to come back 7 days later to emergency gyn as I was unable to urinate&open Bowels.
I endured an internal ultra sound and internal examination by on call Gyn doctor for which I was told "to stop crying as I was a woman and I was making my pain worse ".
I was sent home with pain meds and laxatives.
I have saw various departments in Southern general Nerve scan Where I was asked why I had a crutch, not to rush to attend my follow up clinical appointment as it would take up to 12 weeks for report to follow on to relevant department, this after waiting just short of a year to see this rude consultant who spent more time talking with his student than answering my questions, urodynamics test.
MRI x 4 New Victoria.
Gartnavel Hospital physiotherapy, Stobhill hospital pain management spinal block, tens machine, acupuncture.
Easterhouse clinic pain management ..... Drumchapel clinic for incontinence clinic.
I had mesh removal in Jan 2013, on the understanding removal may not make my symptoms any better. I'm sorry to say I am now registered disabled, walk with crutch and use a wheelchair for longer times. I am also bowel & bladder incontinent.
I feel let down by NhS Scotland. Trying to get follow up dates at a relevant hospitals/clinics with a consultant who knows you on some level, so we don't have to spend endless time relaying your story to yet another registrar.
We need consultants nurses health practitioners to be mesh aware.
