WITNEY MP Robert Courts has written to a woman who says a mesh implant from the John Radcliffe Hospital left her with years of chronic pain and suicidal thoughts.

Victoria Adams, 39, launched a fundraising appeal to help get her mesh removed and was featured on Saturday's front page of the Oxford Mail.

In his letter, Mr Courts says he 'sympathises profoundly' with her suffering 'as a result of this procedure'.

That appears to contradict the Oxfordshire University Health Trust, which has disputed the idea that mesh caused Miss Adams' symptoms and continue to offer the treatment.

Her pain was such that she says it 'made me wish I was dead.'

Mr Courts wrote: "Yours is a deeply powerful and thought-provoking account of the trauma this procedure can cause.

"It would appear that many of those now suffering complications as a result of mesh implants were simply not aware of the risks involved."

Mr Courts did not respond to a request for comment in the original story.

He told Miss Adams that he 'hugely admired' her courage and was 'immensely concerned' about informed consent in health.

Baroness Cumberlege, who is leading a review into mesh, visits Wallingford's Kinecroft on Monday, September 17, from 11 to 1pm, to hear testimonies.
