Tributes have flooded in for the 'courageous' interior designer, who helped to raise awareness of the 'catastrophic' mesh, which leaves many in crippling pain.
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'.

Because it did not require specialist training to implant, outraged women have since begged for tougher regulations to conduct such surgery.
