FACTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT DANIEL SHARMAN
But at the moment it isn't an issue. Their sex life has been shattered He revealed how the couple's sex life has been scuppered, going from twice a week to barely engaging in any activity beneath the sheets. The issue arose when he felt something in the way as they had intercourse a few years ago. He could see it was hurting her. Since then, Mr Sharman constantly worries about causing her pain. Vaginal mesh implants pictured have left women wheelchair bound and unable to have sex 'Your sex life goes out of the window. Both of us in terms of libido have totally gone. You've got to look after your wife. Pain almost immediately followed. But she was not given any warnings about any possible life-long side effects other than it might perforate her bladder. John Sharman pictured , 65, from Reading, revealed Lynne's heartbreaking account of the scandal-hit surgery following the emergence of hundreds of similar stories The former counsellor, who had three children, then had it partially removed at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, a year later. Usually made from synthetic polypropylene, a type of plastic, the implants are intended to repair damaged or weakened tissue in the vagina wall. Other fabrics include polyester, human tissue and absorbable synthetic materials. Some women report severe and constant abdominal and vaginal pain after the surgery. In some, the pain is so severe they are unable to have sex. Infections, bleeding and even organ erosion has also been reported. It followed a year of tireless pleas to the surgeon who put in the implant, who was unable to determine what was causing her pain. A full removal followed a year later, but the delay in removing the mesh has left her plagued by a lifetime of pain. The couple have long campaigned for an end to vaginal mesh procedures, such as this one which has made Mrs Sharman reliant on painkillers. Yet, a study by Case Western Reserve University found that up to 42 per cent of patients experience complications. Of which, 77 per cent report severe pain and 30 per cent claim to have a lost or reduced sex life. Urinary infections have been reported in around 22 per cent of cases, while bladder perforation occurs in up to 31 per cent of incidences. Critics of the implants say trials confirming their supposed safety have been small or conducted in animals, who are unable to describe pain or a loss of sex life. According to Kath Samson, head of the Sling The Mesh campaign, surgeons often refuse to accept vaginal mesh implants are causing recipient's pain, and are not obligated to report such complications anyway. It's really appalling, but hopefully we're getting somewhere. It's easier for Mrs Sharman to walk around in and gives them both an interest. Professor Heneghan and colleagues argue evidence from large trials over the safety of mesh did not emerge until 20 years after the first products were introduced. Writing in the BMJ Open, they suggest they can't be considered safe as they didn't undergo scrutiny in scientific studies with a follow-up of at least five years. The attack on regulation was made after looking at 61 mesh devices given marketing clearance in the US when they were previously deemed lower risk. Only two of the original devices were approved under close scrutiny, with the rest being given clearance for being 'equivalent' to the already approved ones. The results show no evidence of any new clinical trial data at the time of device approval for all of these 61 devices, Professor Heneghan warned. They argue changes in design 'should have alerted regulators' to differences in the characteristics of the mesh that should have negated the use of equivalence. The findings also show a lack of long term data to inform the use of vaginal mesh devices - an argument campaigners have long pointed to. And when longer term evidence did emerge, it identified serious concerns - which many officials have since ignored, implied Professor Heneghan and colleagues. They also recommend a patient registry should be established for all implantable devices to enable long term follow-up and surveillance. This has received the backing from Sling The Mesh, a campaign group which has quadrupled in size since the scandal made headlines in April. Kath Sansom, founder of the 4,strong group, welcomed Professor Heneghan's comments, and said there 'virtually is no regulation'. Carl has fully exposed just how woefully poor regulation is. First PIP, then metal hips and now mesh. Mr Sharman, who met his wife at chess club, told MailOnline: Tiresome fights by campaigners, backed by MailOnline, has since led to Australian and English health officials calling for a ban to some of the procedures. Professor Heneghan's latest comments add fuel to the fire as outraged sufferers seek a House of Commons debate over the safety of vaginal mesh. The comments follow the death of a 'courageous' vaginal mesh campaigner who passed away from sepsis triggered by her implant, it was reported. This implant is embedded with a metallic inserter. It sits close to the mid-section of a woman's urethra. The use of an inserter is thought to lower the risk of cutting during the procedure. Such a sling is held in place by the patient's body. It is inserted with a plastic tape by cutting the vagina and making two incisions in the abdomen. The mesh sits beneath the urethra. Inserted through the groin and sits under the urethra. This sling was intended to prevent bladder perforation. Involves forming a 'hammock' of fibrous tissue in the urethra. Surgeons often claim this form of implant gives them the most control during implantation. Releases the rectum from the back of the vagina or bladder. A mesh is then fitted to the back of the rectum to prevent prolapse. Christina Brajcic, 42, from Ontario, Canada , passed away last Thursday following a four-year battle with persistent infections - as a result of her mesh. During her final few months, she posted an array of videos detailing her struggle with the scandal-hit devices on her Facebook page. Ms Brajcic's death followed landmark moves by English and Australian health officials to recommend the controversial implants should no longer be used. It is expected that the NHS will follow the guidance from Nice, the Government's healthcare adviser - despite not being obligated to do so. The verdict comes after the Government released its three-year investigation into the mesh scandal last September. It rejected calls for a ban at the time. Australian watchdogs also banned the use of vaginal mesh implants for prolapse last week after a review found 'the benefits do not outweigh the risks'. However, vaginal mesh remains a viable option for surgeons operating on women suffering from incontinence in both countries. The scandal came to light in April, when the NHS tried to dodge media attention over the implants that left hundreds of women in agony. Senior doctors immediately called for a public inquiry into the controversial mesh, with some saying the scandal could be akin to thalidomide. At the time, it was reported that at least women were suing the NHS and device manufacturers. However, it is unsure how many women are now looking to take action in Britain. Christina Brajcic, 42, from Ontario, Canada, passed away on Thursday following a four-year battle with persistent infections - as a result of her mesh Mesh, introduced 20 years ago and dubbed 'gold-standard', was promoted as a quick, cheap alternative to complex surgery for incontinence and prolapse. Because it did not require specialist training to implant, outraged women have since begged for tougher regulations to conduct such surgery. In a series of documents about vaginal mesh implants to be published in December, Nice said that 'evidence of long-term efficacy is inadequate in quality and quantity'. It added that 'when complications occur, these can be serious and have life-changing consequences' Yet, Nice also said most women do not report complications after being fitted with such implants. The health watchdog only commented on organ prolapse and not urinary incontinence or hernias, which implants are also used for. High-risk device in the US Vaginal mesh has been considered a high-risk device for nearly a decade in the US, with bodies accepting up to 40 per cent of women may experience injury. Some studies, published in an array of scientific journals, have shown that pain, erosion and perforation from the surgery can strike up to 75 per cent of women. The alarming evidence prompted officials in three US states to suspend the practice and saw them call for an urgent review into its safety. Scottish officials asked for it to be suspended in Scotland in pending a similar review, but hundreds of women are still believed to be having the surgery. More than 10, women a year are fitted with mesh. But only 4, have suffered lacerations and nerve damage from the mesh breaking into tiny fragments. However, campaigners stress these are just the tip of the iceberg and that actually there are thousands more - but they have been kept silent. Ella Ebaugh, 51, from Philadelphia, was awarded the eight-figure sum after a jury found the company to be negligent and its product defective.
