    NiCE have come out in favour of banning the use of vaginal mesh bands at long last. Countless women have been left suffering terrible pain as a result of these implants. Sadly for the women who have already had operations using this material, it is too little and too late. They will be in pain for the rest of their lives and will be unable to work, go on holiday, or enjoy a normal life.

    Will compensation now be made available? What will be done for the women who will have to suffer for the rest of their lives? Can anything in fact be done? It doesn't sound like their is any light at the end of the tunnel for the sufferers.

    I've followed reporting of this in the Guardian. How did it go wrong? Miracle cure that was not or was it a case of careless us by people ill trained in it's risks?

    Seems more like cheap=excellent way to treat people. Hospitals and surgeons being to quick to jump on the band wagon and use something that turns a 2 hour operation into a half hour one. And not enough testing to ensure that these sort of problems don't happen. Or maybe i'm just being cynical.
