Get the Right Answers
When it comes to your body and a medical device, one of the worst feelings in the world can be uncertainty about safety. Suffering harm from transvaginal mesh not only affects a woman physically, but emotionally and financially, as well. As a result of mesh side effects, far too many women are challenged with having to cope with the following:
- Vaginal mesh erosion through the vagina (also referred to as exposure, extrusion or protrusion)
- Severe pain (including painful sexual intercourse known as dyspareunia)
- Urinary problems
- Organ perforation (such as bowel or bladder)
- Recurrent prolapse
- Neuro-muscular problems
- Vaginal scarring/shrinkage
In many cases, medical device failures have led to subsequent revision or removal surgeries, which can be costly, painful and have devastating consequences. No one should ever have to experience any of these life-altering effects, especially when caused by a faulty device.
When this does happen, we understand that it can be difficult to find the courage to seek help. However, getting as much information as possible regarding your legal rights and options could provide an opportunity to hold negligent parties liable and help prevent others from suffering a similar fate. You may also be compensated for your injuries to offset lost wages, medical bills, and other damages. Any type of legal action should never be about getting even, but rather about setting things right.
Potential Risks of Mesh Products
Many of us put our trust and our lives into our doctors’ hands, and for the most part, have blind faith when it comes to pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Although other treatment options are available for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP), mesh surgery may be the only solution offered or encouraged. However, after several reports of injury, death and malfunction, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has put the use of surgical mesh for transvaginal repair under the microscope. After evaluating adverse event reports, the FDA has found cause for serious concern regarding the safety and effectiveness of mesh products.
