When the Patient Advocate Becomes a Patient

Oct 7th, 2012 | By | Category: Your Turn

October 7, 2012~ Our wonder Teapapers patient advocate, Linda, is finally set to her her mesh removal surgery October 11!  We wish her well. She has saved the lives of so many women. Hers has been a very long road especially since her June initial consultation with Dr. Shlomo Raz, at UCLA, the premier doctor in the world who is taking polypropylene mesh out of thousands of women who are suffering. He too is a hero!

Linda submits her last blog (below) before surgery.  She will be in our thoughts and prayers on Thursday!

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.
