Canada: Mum-of-two, vaginal mesh campaigner dies from sepsis four years after having controversial device fitted.

A campaigner against the use of controversial vaginal mesh has died after a four-year battle with persistent infections.

Chrissy Brajcic’s husband Tony confirmed her death on Facebook on Sunday night.

It is thought the mum-of-two was killed by sepsis , which she had been struggling with for several months.

The 42-year-old was a prominent campaigner against the plastic implants, often used to treat vagina, uterus, bowel, bladder or urethra prolapse after childbirth and incontinence.

The Canadian had her implant installed in 2013 having suffered mild stress incontinence after the birth of her sons Ben and Jake.

She said doctor’s assured her the vaginal mesh, also known as a tension free vaginal tape, was completely safe.

But Mrs Brajcic, a former interior designer from Ontario, said she was unaware that the device can twist and cut through internal tissue.

Many women have reported unbearable pain after the 20-minute operation, which is completed on thousands of patients in the UK every year.

During her final months, Mrs Brajcic kept a Facebook video diary detailing her struggle with the device and attracting thousands of viewers.

In one of her final posts she wrote: “After my near death experience a few weeks ago with sepsis from drug resistant infections from surgical mesh.

“I feel now more then ever I need to advocate for the mesh injured. I will never stop fighting.”

Mrs Brajcic’s death comes just a week after the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommended banning the device in the UK.

Confirming his wife’s death on her Facebook page, Mr Brajcic wrote: “It’s clear by all of your messages that Chrissy was truly a special woman and touched the lives of many people.

“We have been overwhelmed by your expressions of interest in attending her memorial service.

“Again thank you so much on behalf of the family. We wish everyone the best in managing any health conditions that you face.”

An impeachment motion brought against Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has been dropped after the required number of petitioners was not met.



The main crust of the petition was because of international deals Farmaajo had signed with neighbouring Ethiopia and Eritrea. The issue of unilateral appointments in the army and judiciary was also highlighted.
