The health minister has apologised to women, after the Cumberlege review published on Wednesday.
A Cumbrian woman who avoided undergoing pelvic mesh surgery says she welcomes a highly critical review of the treatment, but says more needs to be done to ensure the procedure is banned.
Julie Monteverde suffered a pelvic organ prolapse in 2016, but refused the mesh surgery because of safety concerns.
The mesh implant has left some women with internal damage and agonising chronic pain, which some say is "like razors inside the body".
A review has found that officials failed to listen to concerns about the procedure, often writing them off as "women's problems" and has called on the government to apologise and to set up specialist centres for those affected.
They get brushed off as though they're hysterical and they're women and it's their fault and it's not serious. So there are loads of people who are still suffering in silence."
A woman describes how having vaginal mesh implants has left her in constant pain.
A woman who finally had pelvic mesh removed said the hardest part was feeling no-one believed her pain.
