The WA Pelvic Mesh Support Group was created in 2017 as a sister group to Australian Pelvic Mesh Support Group and Mesh Awareness Australia.

The majority of the group are injured by urogynecological mesh and all live in Western Australia.

WAPMSG was originally created on Facebook to find and support mesh injured women in Western Australia with severe complications as a result of undergoing pelvic mesh surgery.
WAPMSG focuses on supporting each other through emotional and painful experiences. We provide education, research and current information related to pelvic mesh. Our members understand the isolation, abandonment and complications caused by mesh injury and we are passionate about helping them find local resources to help them through their life altering condition and promote awareness to prevent this from happening to others.
We hope that by alerting the public to the sometimes horrific, physical and chemical interactions that surgical mesh causes, we can stop others from being implanted and reach the thousands that are alone and suffering in silence.

Please browse through the site and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thanks to Mesh Awareness Australia.Surgical Mesh Awareness Month
#SurgicalMeshAwarenessMonth

Alarmingly, Australian authorities and regulators are unable to provide exact figures on the number of men or women who have been implanted with #surgicalmesh in Australia.

Men and women implanted with surgical mesh who live with debilitating complications, regularly report, being unaware that their surgeon was inserting a permanent surgical mesh implant.

By raising awareness for surgical mesh complications, we hope to alert the men and women, who are unaware that they have a surgical mesh implant and who unaware that their surgical mesh implant may be responsible for their excruciating complications.

We call it giving someone their ‘lightbulb’ and ‘Ah Ha” moment. The moment when they realise that their pain and symptoms are nat ‘all in their head’

Throughout the month of May we will continue to raise awareness for the debilitating and life altering complications related surgical mesh.

Thanks to Mesh Awareness Australia.

1st May is International Mesh Awareness Day. Around the world, hundreds of thousands of people have been damaged by polypropylene #surgicalmesh. Urogynaecological or #pelvicmesh has caused sometimes horrific complications for many women and is still being implanted on a daily basis in WA.
These devices were never tested for safety and efficacy and are still being sold as the Gold Standard for Stress Urinary Incontinence despite the injuries and damage they have caused.
