CALIFORNIA COURT OF APPEALS UPHOLDS JURY VERDICT OF $3.6 MILLION IN CHRISTINE SCOTT V. C.R. BARD!

The legal system is holding major mesh manufacturers accountable...C.R. Bard, Ethicon/Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems.

The FDA IS NOT!

When will the FDA start protecting the most precious resource any society has, its women. Mothers keep cultures and societies together. They are the strong foundation of any civilization.

THE FDA IS DERELICT IN ITS DUTY!!

While the companies change their instructions for use and file another 510(k) application for mesh sheets, instead of mesh kits, to be implanted in a few more million women, the FDA stands by as though it is an innocent bystander watching A TRAIN WRECK!

Synthetic Surgical Mesh implanted in women's vaginas around the world is a MEDICAL HORROR! Yet the authorities around the world, including our great institution, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration - the hallowed FDA - hides behind "CONFIDENTIALITY" while surgeons worldwide brutalize women in the operating room.

But these companies do not care about a lousy $3.6 million dollar verdict for a horribly injured woman. Hell no! Billions of dollars of annual profits is the norm for these companies. They can pay multimillions of dollars to their inhuman women attorneys and never miss a beat.

God save us!

CLEVELAND CLINIC'S DR. G. WILLY DAVILA PERJURES HIMSELF AGAIN IN BOSTON SCIENTIFIC TRIAL IN MIAMI!

Guess liars just don't know where to stop. Sworn testimony or not. Especially Dr. G. Willy Davila when it comes to protecting his favorite thing in life, surgical mesh. He has personally taken on a campaign to implant mesh in as many women around the world as possible.

He's very proud of his protection of synthetic surgical mesh. Does he care if it mutilates women internally? NO. Does he care if those women will never have sex again, never work, never be able to sit or walk or do anything normal? NO. NO. NO.

What G. Willy Davila wants is to be considered important for his surgical skills. Davila wants to be well liked, admired and appreciated by other doctors. As to the women, damn them all. I guess he must be a misogynist. How else would he be able to be so callous about all the lives he has destroyed as the Johnny Appleseed of mesh around the world?

In America we call it PERJURY. It is a CRIME.

So last Friday afternoon, I am sitting in court in downtown Miami at a trial for 4 women in the West Virginia Boston Scientific MDL02326, Judge Joseph Goodwin presiding. Very impressive to see all the attorneys and how the process unfolds.

Except for Davila. Despite being a PAID preceptor for Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon since at least 2001 (over $100,000.00) and a consultant/preceptor for American Medical Systems, there he is in a video deposition...UNDER OATH...saying he has not used mesh for prolapse repair since 2000, 2001. LIE! LIE! LIE!

He was the first doctor EVER to implant the American Medical Systems Apogee transvaginal mesh in the U.S. in 2004. All kinds of press releases, etc, etc, etc how Davila has worked for them over the last 10 years.

DAVILA...stop being a one man wrecking ball for women's lives. Stop the lying. Stop the harm.

You ruined my life, continually cutting and cuttting and cutting into my bladder, telling the jury in the med mal lawsuit against Dr. Cantor, "Oh we will manage the erosion of the mesh into Lana Keeton's bladder conservatively. She will be fine." Of course the jury believed him. He is a doctor at Cleveland Clinic.

As to me, no conservative management got the mesh out of my bladder. Three (3) major abdominal surgeries since 2009 and I am totally mutilated because Davila did not remove it years ago which would have had a much better outcome for me.

NO, for 7 years, 2002 to 2009, ..."let's just do those conservative in-office trimmings". Let me just cut you and cut you and cut you. More money for me, for Cleveland Clinic and I don't have to report the adverse events of the defective Gynecare TVT bladder sling.

Last Friday he did the same thing to Margarita Dotres in court in downtown Miami in the Boston Scientific MDL02326. "Oh I expect a really good outcome for Ms. Dotres when I do surgery on her in December." How does he know that? HE DOES NOT KNOW THAT. He is a paid industry hack for the mesh companies and he is trying to reduce the award the jury should give her.

LIE, LIE, LIE! Boy, did you see how long Dr. Davila's nose has grown? He's not going to be able to get in his car if it grows any longer.

KENNETH KEETON, MY DADDY, MY HERO! AND HIS YOUNGER BROTHER, HORACE KEETON!

Two great guys fought in World War II in the Phillipines. One came home. The other did not. Never met Uncle Horace. Always saw his picture on the wall next to the light switch by the door at Ma Keeton's house. Handsome guy. That's all I really know about him, except that he is buried a few feet from my Daddy, next to his Mom and Dad.

That's what war does. Takes away lives at such young ages, children and grand children never know them.

My Daddy, Kenneth, and My Uncle, Horace, were honorable men who fought for, died for and protected this country. Daddy came home but the war was always with him. I know that now but never understood it when I was growing up.

I just know he loved me, he loved my Mama and he loved my brothers. He loved us and provided for us and protected us. He was a great man who fought for this United States of America. God bless America, God bless my Uncle Horace and God bless my Daddy, Kenneth!!

A DIFFERENT SPIRIT by JOEL & VICTORIA OSTEEN

CUT & PASTE FROM JOEL AND VICTORIA OSTEEN'S DAILY E-MAIL DEVOTIONAL OCTOBER 30, 2014

Every Sunday I watch Joel on TV as he preaches from Lakewood Church in Houston, TX. What a powerful wonderful message he always has...always uplifting my spirit. Every single time, I feel so good from hearing him. He definitely has God's anointing.

I want to share his and Victoria's message today because it really spoke to me relating to myself and the thousands of mesh injured patients worldwide. So many are so bitter and so angry and so disenfranchised. Many patients are mean to other mesh injured patients.

I call today for "A DIFFERENT SPIRIT" among us. Stop the insanity of attacking each other online. There is ZERO reason to be mean to each other. Please be civilized and kind to those who suffer physically every single day. A word of kindness goes a long way towards a better day. Unkind words leave stains on people's hearts and souls.

Please follow God faithfully as the scripture below says...."Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!"

God bless you wherever you are! Lana

"TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it.”
(Numbers 14:24, NASB)



TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

One time in scripture, Moses sent 12 men to spy out the Promised Land. The people of Israel were camped right next door and excited about possessing the land. But after 40 days, ten of the men came back with a negative report. They said, “Moses, there are giants in the land, and we’ll never defeat them.” That negative report spread throughout the rest of the camp, and the people began to murmur and complain.
But one of the spies named Caleb said, “Moses, we are well able to defeat these people. Let us go up at once and take the land!”
It’s interesting that they all saw the same land, the same circumstances, yet they had totally different views. How could their reports be so opposite? Here’s how: Caleb had a different spirit. He saw things with a different perspective. Others were focused on the giants, but Caleb was focused on his God. The people who complained never actually made it into the Promised Land, but Caleb did. He accompanied a new generation that chose the blessing of God.
Today, you can choose to have a different spirit. Don’t listen to what everyone else says; listen to what God says. Choose to believe His Word, choose to obey Him, and He will lead you into your promised land!


A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, today I choose to tune out the negative voices of the world. I choose to trust in You even when no one else around me will. I thank You for the good things You are doing in my life and trust that You will fulfill every promise You’ve made to me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen"

THE UGLY TRUTH...DR. G. WILLY DAVILA, CLEVELAND CLINIC WESTON, IS A LIAR!

Dr. G. Willy Davila, the Johnny Appleseed of Synthetic Surgical Mesh, has traveled the world over spreading the horror of mesh to women worldwide. His name is to be reviled. There is a special place in hell for humans(actually inhumans) like him.

A couple of weeks ago, I discovered he was paid $75,000.00 (2 separate contracts) as a preceptor (training other surgeons to mutilate women with mesh) by Ethicon, Inc /Johnson & Johnson...before I ever had mesh implanted in me in 2001 and before I ever went to see him the first time in 2002.

I emphatically trusted him with my own medical treatments for 7 years. The entire time he lied to me. I am devastated to know how he used me as a guinea pig for all those years, repeated surgeries and repeated in-office trimmings INSIDE MY BLADDER! Let's manage your "erosion" conservatively (now called "exposure" as if a new name would make the pain and agony of mesh any less) he would say.

"Other surgeons are not as skilled as me is the reason there are complications with mesh" he would say. I believed him! I just want to vomit thinking about it.

And then he spied on the work of Truth in Medicine, all the while reporting back to the mesh companies. You talk about despicable, he's despicable. Spread the word about this disgusting man to everyone you know. He still travels the world "training" other surgeons to mutilate women with mesh.

Tell everyone you know his name, Dr. G. WILLY DAVILA. Don't let him be the Johnny Appleseed of Mesh in your town or in your country. Let's expose him worldwide for the industry hack he is! Him and Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson.

You probably know one in your country...write me at lana@lanakeeton.com and I will help you to expose them, too.

NO GOVERNMENT, NO PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL SOCIETY, NO DEVICE COMPANY, NO LAWS IN ANY COUNTRY ARE PROTECTING US WOMEN (OR MEN EITHER)FROM SURGICAL MESH MISUSE AND ABUSE!

WE HAVE TO SHOUT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS THE TRUTH OF THE SYSTEMATIC MUTILATION OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE FACILITATED BY OUR HEALTH SYSTEMS!!

NAME THE JOHNNY APPLESEEDS OF MESH!! GET THEIR MEDICAL LICENSES REVOKED. SHAME THEM FOR THEIR ATROCITIES.

LET'S GO...WE ARE WOMEN, HEAR US ROAR!

ONE MORE TIME.....ROOOAAARRR!@!# AS LOUD AS YOU CAN!!!

LANA C. KEETON, Your fellow mesh injured patient, VICTOR IN THE WAR AGAINST MESH!!

D.C. CIRCUIT COURT REVERSES FDA REVOCATION OF REGEN MESH KNEE IMPLANT

While the FDA has been very slow in tackling the major issue of Transvaginal Mesh for pelvic organ prolapse and bladder suspension, I am very pleased they are doing it by the book!! Otherwise, the efforts of thousands and thousands of injured patients might be reversed on appeal as the REGEN MESH KNEE IMPLANT has by the D.C. Circuit Court. See below...

DC Circuit Knocks FDA’s Backtrack On Knee Implant Approval
By David Siegel Law360, New York, September 26, 2014

"The D.C. Circuit ruled Friday that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration didn’t follow the proper procedure to revoke marketing clearance for a knee implant more than two years after it had initially granted it, finding the agency’s inherent authority cannot trump Congress’s rules for reclassifying medical devices.

In a split 2-1 ruling, the appeals panel reversed a lower court decision granting summary judgment in favor of the FDA, finding the agency acted improperly in reversing its prior approval of the Collagen Scaffold, a surgical mesh knee implant."

As for myself, although I highly disagree with the FDA's 510(k) PreMarket Notification Clearance process, have always sought to get mesh off the market through the existing FDA regulatory authority. Better to use the road most traveled than to try to build new roads.

SEPTEMBER 8, 2011....3 YEARS AND COUNTING and TRANSVAGINAL MESH IS STILL ON THE MARKET!

September 8, 2011...Day One!

FDA ObGyn Advisory Panel Meeting on Synthetic Surgical Mesh implanted in the pelvis of women. Transvaginal mesh it is now called...no matter where placed, no matter the brand. All lumped into one...

Guess that's okay in a sense because ALL of them cause immeasurable harm.

When will the FDA take action to stop the harm to millions of mesh injured patients, MEN AND WOMEN ALIKE?

The medical device companies have a seemingly unending amount of time to continue the harm while Patients NEVER get a second chance. Once the mesh is in, it is permanent.

So while the mesh makers get a do over, Patients become permanently disabled pelvic cripples.

An FDA warning October 2008.

Another more serious FDA warning July 13, 2011.

The FDA mandates 522 studies to 33 companies for 99 mesh products January 2012.

The FDA puts forth the possiblity of upclassifying mesh kits manufactured for pelvic organ prolapse May 2014. Comments are accepted through July 2014.

September 8, 2014...patients are still harmed every single day while mesh companies still getting a do over.

What really needs a do over is the FDA's 510(k) Premarket Notification clearance process which allowed these products ever to be sold in the first place.

Write your Congressman. Write the FDA. Write your State authorities.

LET'S GET SYNTHETIC SURGICAL MESH OFF THE MARKET...PERMANENTLY!

NO MORE DO OVERS!
