    I had my vaginal and bladder prolapse “repaired” by the mesh sling procedure on Dec. 9, 2009. I have had increasing pain and scar tissue developed over time. In the past year I was examined and there was evident perforation. Intercourse is not possible due to the pain caused by what feels like a band across my urethra. Is it too late to pursue litigation? My gynecologist/surgeon said that the mesh that was used has not been named in the litigation. I do not know the name/brand. Is it too late? I live in Montana.

    My uterus prolapsed five years ago and I had a complete hysterectomy. My surgeon repaired my organs with Gynecare mesh manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. The surgery was done at Kalispell Regional Medical Center in Kalispell, Montana. During these last five years, I have also had both hips replaced and had three deaths in my family to deal with. Settling those three estates, while working full time as a middle school teacher, has left me no time to do self care. I have just retired from teaching. One very important reason for my retiring is the urinary incontinence that I have been experiencing more and more – caused by the mesh implant. I blame the greedy manufacturers. They do not care how they impact people’s lives. Please get back to me as soon as possible.
