Surgical Mesh Attorney Cases
Over the last few years there have been more than 4,000 cases of injury due to vaginal mesh. It’s not the surgery, but the mesh that creates complications like eroded mesh, infection, bacteria build up, urinary problems, bleeding, pain and more. This doesn’t have to just be taken and thrown aside as another part of life. You can hire an attorney and get what you are entitled to.
Vaginal mesh is also known by names such as transvaginal mesh, bladder mesh and pelvic sling. It is used to fix organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. Unfortunately, a lot of the time they have caused serious internal injury in patients that have had surgery in the vagina. The pads have caused many problems that have not been given warning about from the manufacturers. The doctors nor the patients have been warned properly or even educated about the risk of using these pads internally.
You can receive significant compensation for problems from vaginal mesh problems. People don’t realize that they are not alone a lot of the time and don’t understand that there are attorneys out there that have had many cases before yours. Whether you are experiencing pain, bowel or bladder perforation, bleeding or serious infection then you are entitled to have all of your medical bills taken care of, money for pain and suffering, money to compensate of work time lost and money for any stress or mental un-wellness you have developed from this incident.
An unbelievable number of 15% of women that have undergone surgery and have been implanted with vaginal mesh have suffered from complications such as vaginal mesh erosion within three months of implantation. The mesh has been distributed by nine different companies without warning so physicians and patients everywhere have been blindly getting involved with this problem. The FDA has recently issued warning in 2011 which cautions that the risk of using vaginal mesh is severe enough that alternate treatments should be looked into. Now, pelvic organ prolapse is treated without vaginal mesh.
