Currently, Tennessee is home to nearly 6,403,353 people and women who have had the pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery using the transvaginal mesh may have a legal case on their hands. According to the FDA as of July 2011, women who chose to use the transvaginal mesh rather than pursue other options, are at a much higher risk of developing mesh related problems. Since the product makers chose not to tell their doctors and patients of the increasing risk, many have come forward with legal claims against the company. Over the last 3 years, there have been at least 1,000 reports of serious and life threatening side effects.

The following cities in Tennessee are included:

  • Nashville
  • Memphis
  • Chattanooga
  • Johnson City
  • Murfreesboro
  • Clarksville
  • Bartlett
  • Hendersonville
  • Franklin
  • Kingsport
  • Cleveland
  • Columbia
  • Morristown
  • Brentwood

Sometimes refered to as the pelvic sling, a trans vaginal mesh is designed to help women who have pelvic prolapse, bladder prolapse, and other types of pelvic problems. It is made to help reinforce the vaginal walls. Reported side effects include pain during sex, vaginal scarring, mesh erosion, bleeding, bladder problems, and more. If you believe you may be a victim of the transvaginal mesh, find a lawyer in Tennessee to help your case today.

    I am not sure if when I had my hysterectomy my dr used vaginal mesh. I had incontenance issues prior to surgery and severe endometriosis. Dr crowder said she had to support my bladder for about 6 months I had no problems but after that the incontenance returned and I have had problems since then. I did not have insurance until recently but still can’t afford to go to gynecologist to be checked. I have a lot of pelvic pain and very painful intercourse. At times I have like severe period cramps but I know that’s not the problem. Can someone help me find out about this. I had surgery at Johnson city medical center in Johnson city tn in 2006. Thank you in advance. Angel Crites

    I have had approximately 4 procedures to trim the mesh that had perforated through my vaginal tissue and then had one revision surgery. I still have pain with sexual relations and urinary incontinence. However, my original surgery was in 2004, I am uncertain if the statute of limitations has passed. I would appreciate some guidance on this matter. thanks.
