Sling the Mesh say campaigners

Parliament Square, London. Tue 6th Feb 2018


 Use of the mesh to treat incontinence and prolapse after childbirth has been suspended in Scotland. The

 campaigners want it suspended across the UK

 Most of those in the campaign are suffereing becase of the mesh

 

 They wear strips of blue mesh for the protest, and red hadscarves with large white dots

 which I think represent blood and the mesh

 

 They say patients are not told about the yellow card scheme to report problems - so problems don't get reported

 'I've been meshed up by the NHS'

 '100 years of votes for women - Now hear our voice - Sling The Mesh'

 

 

 

 

 You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig'

 One poster shows a woman who talks about her pain being called hysterical by a surgeon - which is what often happens

 

Many become disabled because of the mesh.
