Have you or your loved one had a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery using the transvaginal mesh sling and are now experiencing problems? You may be a victim of a defective product. According to the FDA, who stated in July 2011, women that had the transvaginal mesh are at a much higher risk for developing mesh complications than women who used other options. Since the manufacturers of this product failed to warn anybody of this ongoing risk, many are coming forth filing legal claims against them for their pain, suffering, and legal expenses.
The following Wisconsin cities are included:
- Green Bay
- Eau Claire
- New Berlin
While it is sometimes known as a pelvic sling, the trans vaginal mesh is designed to help reinforce the vaginal walls. It is made in helping women who have pelvic problems, such as bladder and pelvic prolapse. Within the past 3 years there have been over a thousand reports of life threatening and very serious side effects including bleeding, mesh erosion, vaginal scarring, infections, general discomfort, and more.
