Pelvic Mesh Implants – Submissions and Support
Women who have had mesh surgically implanted to treat vaginal prolapse or urinary incontinence are invited to respond to this survey from Australia’s state, territory and national peak consumer groups, including Health Consumers Queensland. Your experiences will be vital to inform a joint Senate submission being drafted by our organizations.
(Note that mesh can also be referred to as tape, a sling, or TVT)
This survey is now closed. Health Issues Centre would like to thank all of the women who have bravely shared their experiences of pelvic mesh implants. We will continue working on behalf of all mesh injured women. You can follow updates on http://www.facebook.com/UnderstandingPelvicMesh .
