UC 332: Pelvic Mesh Implants Gone Wrong with Justine Watson

Episode 332

Show Notes

Justine Watson President & Co-Founder of Mesh Injured Australia had a TVT fitted in 2010 for SUI. She discovered in 2017 after a cystoscopy that the mesh had skewered her urethra in several places and was embedded in her bladder. With no other explanations for her years of pain and systemic illnesses and after much researching, she travelled alone to the USA for removal surgery a few weeks later. Justine is a mental healthcare worker with more than 20 years experience and is now an advocate for Mesh Injured people and is currently involved in the co-design of a new Pelvic Mesh clinic in Sydney. Justine is also on the Health Consumers NSW Transvaginal Mesh Steering Committee. The Chatters are silent (for once), they are flabbergasted at Justine’s story, if you know anyone or you yourself have had a pelvic mesh implant or are contemplating having one then this is a not to be missed episode. This is for people with hernia mesh as well as pelvic mesh. As the shock subsides the Chatters have a million questions as you will too.
