About the Transvaginal Mesh Recall

Any woman who has experienced urinary incontinence or pelvic prolapse will know that the suggestion they have a transvaginal mesh installed by their doctor is not something they would ever have considered if they knew the devastating side effects.

Of the many women who received an implant, many were told that they would have the transvaginal mesh placed in the vagina as part of other surgical procedures they were undergoing. Many did not have the option of not having the transvaginal mesh installed made available to them.

Unfortunately, the women who had a transvaginal mesh implanted have suffered some devastating and life destroying side effects. For these women the transvaginal mesh recall came as no surprise at all. However, the recall does not change the thousands of people already affected by the transvaginal mesh products.

Between 2008 and 2010, 1500 complaints about the transvaginal mesh implant were received by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The total number of complaints received to date is now over 4000. The problem seems to develop through the act of passing the mesh through the vagina, which can lead to severe side effects. Also, the material of the mesh can have awful consequences, doing significant damage to the vaginal wall.

This is why the victims of the transvaginal mesh recall need to talk to a transvaginal mesh recall lawyer about their case. There is no reason why you should have to suffer from any of these side effects listed below if you were completely unaware of the risks before you had a transvaginal mesh implanted.

Here are just some of the side effects:

  • Pain
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal mesh infection
  • Vaginal scarring
  • Holes developing in the bowel or bladder
  • Erosion of the mesh implant through the vaginal walls
  • Recurrence of incontinence or prolapse
  • Pain during sexual intercourse, or complete inability to have sexual intercourse

Many of these side effects are simply unacceptable if it turns out that the transvaginal mesh product was not properly tested in clinical trials before it was approved and released to the market. Unfortunately it seems that this is what happened in the lead up to the transvaginal mesh recall in the US.

This, along with the fact that you might not have been presented with the option of not having the transvaginal mesh installed, is a reason why you absolutely need to contact a transvaginal mesh recall lawyer. Some of these side effects are so devastating that some women who received one of the recalled transvaginal mesh products may live with these symptoms for the rest of their lives.
