Crippled in Scotland, saved in the States: Mesh victim Claire Daisley shares her story in today’s Sunday Post

Repeatedly told by doctors that everything that could be done to ease her crippling agony had been done, Claire Daisley was resigned to an awful operation that would change her life forever.

Her mesh implant, that had inflicted such pain, had been completely removed, they said, but still her anguish continued, the terrible agony forcing her to use crutches and wheelchairs.

The only option left, they said, was to remove organs, her bladder, definitely, her bowel, almost certainly.

Fearful, Claire was due to have her bowel removed at the end of July, but a dramatic last-minute intervention meant the operation was cancelled and, she hopes, will now never be needed.

Supporters who had read her story in The Sunday Post had come forward and donated the thousands of pounds needed to send her to America, to be operated on by the world’s leading mesh removal expert.

Read Claire’s full story, only inside today’s Sunday Post.
