A mother killed herself after a doctor removed her ovaries without her knowing during an operation, an inquest heard.

Lucinda Methuen-Campbell, from the village of Three Crosses, near Swansea, went in for surgery on a bowel disorder – but came out without her ovaries.

An inquest heard the surgeon told her later that her ovaries were taken out ‘because they were in the way.’ Mailonline reports.

Mrs Methuen-Campbell chose surgery at a private hospital performed by pioneering surgeon Tony Dixon in September 2016 after suffering years of pain.

She had a vaginal mesh inserted to help with the bowel disorder but it left her in agony.

The 58-year-old was later found hanged in her attic telling her ex-partner: ‘There didn’t seem to be a way out of the pain.’

Mr Dixon has built up an international reputation for using mesh to fix bowel problems which are often linked to childbirth – but is currently suspended from two hospitals in Bristol.

He is under investigation by the NHS which has referred him to the General Medical Council over the mesh procedures.
