Are you a current resident of Arkansas and are experiencing problems after having a transvaginal mesh implant surgery?

If you are experiencing any problems within the following cities call immediately:

The transvaginal mesh implant is like a woven fabric, which is designed to help treat bladder prolapse and pelvic prolapse among women. It is also made to help reinforce the vaginal walls. Recently, the FDA has announced that patients who have had this surgery may be at a greater risk of developing a mesh complication rather than the women who used other treatments. Due to the fact the manufacturers of the vaginal mesh implant did not warn doctors or patients, you may be eligible to file a legal claim against them.

Below is a list of hospitals in Arkansas where you may have had surgery. This is a partial list so if the hospital you had your procedure at is not listed, you may still have a case.

  • St. Vincent Infirmary
  • University of Arkansas for Medical Science
  • Arkansas State Hospital
  • Bradley County Medical Center
  • Dallas County Medical Center
  • Fayetteville VA Medical Center
  • Mercy Health Center
  • North Arkansas Regional Medical Center

    I am located in Bella Vista and had my surgery in May of 2013 at Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville. It was a surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and my doctor used mesh sling which was attached via anchors into the ligaments. Within several weeks, I was having severe pain located hear my tailbone, going down into my butt and into my thigh when most severe. After see a number of other doctors and having physical therapy to explore other possibilities for the cause of pain, it was determined that it was definitely from the sling. In October of 2013, I had a surgery to try to ‘loosen’ the sling as it seemed to have tightened. That procedure was not successful. My doctor referred me to a uro-gynecologist in Atlanta and I had surgery in December 2013 to remove the sling and anchors, hoping to stop the pain. After several weeks (and about the time I was getting off the pain medication from the surgery), the pain returned just as before. The surgeon suggested I have pelvic floor therapy three months after surgery, which I will start in another month. The surgeon gave me a 50-50 chance of the last surgery taking care of the pain…at this point, since it has returned in full force and I am back on the pain medication to try to help control it, it appears to not have been successful. Thank you.

    I had bladder mesh surgery about 2 years ago. I have an appointment with my Dr. because I am having discomfort.

    I had bladder mesh surgery about 2 years ago. I am now having discomfort and leaking. My appointment is the beginning of August, if I have to have surgery again I will miss work. I work for a major retailer this could potentially be a problem with the holiday season right around the corner.

    I had the surgery in 2010. 6 to 8 months later I started leaking again and have had to take medicine to help control it since. I have had numbness in my backside and upper legs along with discomfort in my pelvic area. I really thought this was going to be a great thing, but I was wrong.
