Are you a current resident of Illinois who has used the transvaginal mesh implant after a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery? Out of the 12,869,257 people living in Illinois, women who have used the transvaginal mesh are at a higher risk of developing mesh complications according to the FDA. As of July 13th, 2011 the FDA stated that there is a higher risk of developing these mesh complications when using the transvaginal mesh than using another treatment. Since the manufactures had failed to warn about this increased risk, claims are being filed against them.

The following cities in Illinois are included:

  • Chicago
  • Joliet
  • Rockford
  • Naperville
  • Peoria
  • Elgin
  • Aurora
  • Springfield
A transvaginal mesh is sometimes called a pelvic sling. The material is like a woven type fabric made to help treat bladder and pelvic prolapse, and helps in reinforcing the vaginal walls. If you have experienced any serious side effects such as mesh erosion, discomfort, bleeding, or pain after sex after your surgery, you should contact a transvaginal mesh lawsuit lawyer in Illionis right away. You may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.

Below is a list of some of the hospitals in Illinois where you may have had your surgery done. This is a partial list so even if the hospital you had your procedure at is not in this list, you may still have a case.

  • Northwestern Memorial Hospital
  • Advocate Christ Medical Center
  • University of Chicago Medical Center
  • Rush University Medical Center
  • Carle Foundation Hospital
  • Tinley Woods Surgery Center

    I had a hysterectomy (full) in 1990. I had a mesh sling in or around 2008. After many tries for intercourse….it was too painful…so we stopped having sex. I have had many UTI’s. I also have blood in my urine (a lot) my Medicaid doctor told me. I have pain in pelvic area and recently started showing blood on tissue when wiping after urinating. I am depressed and leaking before peeing ( leaking before I get to the bathroom).
    I live in Round Lake, Illinois. I am on Medicaid and 64 years old.
    What would be my next step?
    Thank You,
    Kathleen
