Surgery for Mia - mesh removal

My little boy needs me to be the best mum I can possibly be!

That means I need to have a permanent plastic mesh implant removed from my pelvis by one of the few surgeons in the world who know how to do it, doctor Sohier Elneil in London, England.

I need funds to travel from Sweden to England and to pay for private surgery and hospital stay for three days.

This implant has given me chronic pain in my groin, hips, legs, abdomen, back and pelvis. Pain that won’t let me lift my boy up into my arms, dance with him, play footie in the park, take him for long walks, go ice-skating or do any of the things we love. Pain that brings tears to my eyes when he hugs me just a little too hard.

If I leave it in, this plastic implant will likely cause further injuries, such as cutting into my vagina, urethra, bladder or bowel. Google pelvic + mesh + injuries and see for yourself the utter destruction caused by these implants.

So many people have been injured by mesh. When my pain started and I began researching this, I stumbled on Sling The Mesh, a UK-based campaign, where I've learned so much. Without them, I wouldn't know what I know today, and I wouldn't have found Doctor Elneil, the one doctor in Europe who can safely remove my mesh.

Please help me build a future for me and my son, a future where I’ll be able to care for him like I want and need to. Please give even a small amount, as every little bit helps.

Thank you!
