Tell the Govt how many Aussie Mum's, Grandmas, Aunties & Sisters have been injured by Mesh

This petition had 834 supporters

Women across Australia are injured, not just a few women, thousands of women HOWEVER our health system has NOT kept any records, so health regulatory bodies such as TGA, Gynecologist/Urogynecologist's Associations have no proof of the thousands of women whom have experienced complications of transvaginal pelvic mesh implants.

And why do they have no proof. Well it's because for surgeons it's not mandatory to report complications of pelvic mesh implants and it's because the Medicare system have the same item number for pelvic mesh as it does a native repair. Don't you think that's absurd? Especially absurd when one procedure takes half an hour and another takes 4-6 hours........
We need to present Honourable Greg Hunt and Government officials with proof that we (Australian women whom have been injured, maimed, disabled) are REAL.

We are not only REAL but we have been suffering without the medical care that we deserve, we have been silenced by medical practitioners Australia wide, from GP's to specialists to hospitals, we have been given no financial support from the Government. The gynecologists and urogynecologists believe that the pelvic mesh implants are a success for most. How can they prove this? When they have no data, simple they can't. Having a pelvic mesh implant is like playing a dangerous game of Russian roulette.

We are saying enough is enough. If the health system is inferior why do the mothers, grandmothers, aunties, sisters of Australia have to pay for it with our lives. Most of us mesh injured are broken beyond repair and women have been injured pre 2000.

Please sign this petition if you have experienced pelvic mesh complications, let's be united and stand up and be counted. Plastic should not be implanted into a females genitals or pelvis's ever!
