Urgent Health Alert: Breast Reconstruction Mesh Risks

Women undergoing breast reconstruction after cancer face severe complications from surgical mesh, echoing the pelvic mesh scandal. Campaigners demand an investigation into its safety, as patients report chronic pain, collapsed implants, and infections. Mesh, often used to support new breast tissue, has left many women in agony, similar to the 170,000 harmed by vaginal mesh. Despite earlier reassurances, complications include implant failure and infections. Mesh is being used as an off-label device. It is not approved for use in the breast by the FDA.

Women like Jemma Parker and Jane Stoddart suffer daily, with Jane describing her pain as a "knife twisting inside." Patient advocacy groups like Sling The Mesh highlight the urgent need for thorough safety reviews and better patient awareness.
