Vaginal mesh mess

Women used as guinea pigs.  Reproductive organs damaged, permanently. Deliberately?  A nice little money earner for the botchers.  Who listened when concerns first surfaced?  NO ONE.  Big Pharma went on to its mammoth profits at the expense of human misery.  Women were and are collateral damage.  Another stuff-up by Australia’s medicines regulator, the inept TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration).

Much to report.  Stay tuned.
