Are you a current resident of Washington State and have recently had a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery using the transvaginal mesh sling? If so, you may be eligible to file a legal claim. As of July 2011, the FDA issued a statement saying that woman who choose to use the transvaginal mesh as opposed to other treatment options, are at a much higher risk for developing mesh complications. Since the manufacturers of the trans vaginal mesh failed to warn doctors and patients of this increased risk, many are coming forward with complaints.

The following cities of Washington are included:

  • Vancouver
  • Seattle
  • Yakima
  • Federal Way
  • Spokane
  • Kent
  • Marysville
  • Olympia
  • Bellingham
  • Renton
  • Pasco
  • Edmonds

Sometimes called a pelvic sling, a transvaginal mesh is designed in helping women who have pelvic prolapse, bladder prolapse, and other types of pelvic problems. It helps to reinforce the vaginal walls. Many of the reported side effects include mesh erosion, bladder problems, vaginal scarring, general discomfort, bleeding, and even more fatal injuries. If you feel like you are a victim of the trans vaginal mesh sling, call a transvaginal mesh lawyer in Washington right away to get help.

Below is a list of some hospitals in Washington where you might have had your surgery. 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.

  • Harborview Medical Center
  • Southwest Washington Medical Center
  • University of Washington Medical Center

    I had a lap. assisted vag hyst and a “bladder taping” . I the developed protrusion of the mesh into my vaginal canal, pain, bloody and pussy urination. I required a surgical revision and a “patch”. I have since experienced return of stress incontinence, painful intercourse and bloody discharge after intercourse.. It feels as if my vaginal canal has shrunk in length.

    I had surgery to implant the Perigree, Apogee and Sparc sling. This was done in Chelan County, Washington State. Since the surgery, my incontinence has returned, I have unexplained pelvic pain and pain during intercourse. I had a second surgery (6-4-13 in Wenatchee, Washington) to put in a sling around the urethra using my own tissue and to remove any mesh visible during the surgery (around the urethra and bladder near where the doctor was working). The doctor thought this might give me some relief of pain. However, the doctor opted to not remove the mesh saying that the mesh removal would be too risky and he feared putting a hole in the urethra.
