Are you one of the 3,791,508 residents of Oklahoma and have previously had a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery, and had the trans vaginal mesh sling inserted? If so, you might be eligible for legal compensation. Within the last 3 years, there have been over 1,000 reports of side effects. In July 2011, the FDA announced that women who pursued to use the transvaginal mesh as opposed to other options, are at a much higher risk in developing mesh-like complications. Due to the fact the product manufacturers did not warn anybody of this risk, people are coming forward with claims against them to get help with pain and suffering, as well as medical expenses.

The following Oklahoma cities are included:

  • Oklahoma City
  • Broken Arrow
  • Tulsa
  • Norman
  • Edmond
  • Midwest City
  • Moore
  • Enid
  • Muskogee
  • Stillwater
  • Bartlesville
  • Shawnee

The woven type fabric, also known as a pelvic sling is made to help women who have bladder prolapse, pelvic prolapse, and other types of pelvic problems. The trans vaginal mesh is designed to reinforce the walls of the vagina. There have been serious side effects reported however such as bleeding, pain after sex, discomfort, mesh erosion, and more. If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, find a transvaginal mesh lawyer in Oklahoma today to see what your options are.

Here is a list of some of the hospitals in Oklahoma 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.

  • St. Francis Hospital
  • St. Anthony Hospital
  • Baptist Medical Center of Oklahoma
  • OU Medical Center
  • St. John Medical Center
  • Any other medical facility in Oklahoma

    I had my surgery in June of 2010 at Ponca City Medical Center. I have been having pelvic pain for about 2 years now. Could my surgery fall under the criteria since it wasn’t done at the hospitals listed?

    I had a bladder prolapse surgery in 2009. I had to have another surgery to correct it this last April, 2013. My surgeon,told me that the sling didn’t fail, that it was due to an accident that occurred in 2011. NOT TRUE!! He will not write an official letter stating the cause of the failure. I know he is trying to avoid litigation or he wouldn’t have a problem giving his expert opinion. I have had a horrible time recovering from this surgery and I cannot engage in intercourse with my husband for the horrific pain. Please help!

    How do I find out for sure if I had this implanted? I had an emergency c section in 2003 and I could swear the doctor said after he came in to check on me that he’d used a mesh tape? I don’t remember anything else he said …. But that stuck because I thought it was I’d that I was awake during the c section and he didn’t ask…. Then but informed me later of what he’d done. Seriously how do I find out for sure because I’ve been suffering with infections etc and using homeopathic cures but their no longer working.

    I have had 4 mesh surgeries. They were done in Wichita, Kansas, however, I now live in Midwest City, OK. Can I still file here in Oklahoma. I started a suit with a law firm in New Jersey, however, I never turned in the final paperwork (long story). I know I’m running out of time and I would like to work with an attorney close.

    I had a bladder sling inserted 9 years ago. Two years later they had to go in and remove it due to complications from the original surgery. So far, over this time I have had a number of surgeries to remove bladder stones, mesh attached to the bladder wall and also had surgery to remove from left groin muscle where the mesh adhered to the muscle. I’ve been told I also have a mesh in my vagina. I am now left with a irritable bladder, that at times, can put me down for at least a day. Am I still eligible?

    Do you know if Canadian Valley Hospital in Yukon, OK. used one the mesh listed in the us. I had a pelvic organ prolapse repair in 2005. I don’t see that hospital listed.
    Thanks-
