Teapapers: When Woman are Told They’re Looking for Drugs

Sep 10th, 2012 | By | Category: Op-Ed

Linda spends more time than she should helping other women. More time because she herself is injured by transvaginal mesh and counting the days until an appointment with Dr. Raz at UCLA to begin the removal process.

Still she takes the times to patiently talk to and even cry with women who contact her through her blog. Too often she hears the same story- doctors and medical professionals assume the woman is just an addict looking for drugs.

Talk about adding insult to injury.

Read the rest from this compassionate woman.

We hope you find this a helpful resource. National News Editor, Jane Akre, began MDND with the hope of providing the latest news, information and perspective from the regulatory, industry and patient point of view, something that goes under-reported in much of the coverage of medical devices. The public is just now becoming aware that many devices do not undergo the same scrutiny as prescription drugs and are instead grandfathered in under an FDA loophole that has gone largely unchanged since the 1970s. As a result, patients become the post-market clinical trial subjects, and many suffer devastating and permanent injuries.
