The pain put me on nerve blockers and tramadol and left me with sleepless nights of regret. The leg pains were like intense toothache all down the back, it felt like somebody had punched the base of my feet and at times like my legs and ankles were being lashed with barbed wire.
I had burning pains in my groin and private parts, severe stomach acid reflux and it hurt to sit for too long. With hindsight I should have done my research because I had no idea the sling was made out of polypropylene plastic.
Seven months after it was put in, I had my mesh removed with corrective surgery in Oxford in October 2015
