Has the Vaginal Mesh Recall Affected You?

The women who have had a vaginal mesh implanted have been victim to some absolutely devastating side effects and injuries which not only has led to the vaginal mesh recall but to emotional trauma and even relationship breakdowns for these women.

Thousands of women who suffered from relatively common problems such as urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse and went in for what was a seemingly routine procedure have been affected by the vaginal mesh products.

Over the space of just a couple of years, between 2008 and 2010, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received 1500 complaints regarding vaginal mesh implants. That number has since grown to over 4000. The problem appears to develop when the vaginal mesh is passed through the vagina, which can lead to a number of severe side effects. The material that the mesh is made of can also cause significant damage to the vaginal wall.

This chain of events is what led to the vaginal mesh recall. However, just because there has been a vaginal mesh recall does not mean there are not still thousands of women who are suffering physically, emotionally and financially. If you are a victim of the vaginal mesh recall you need to get in touch with a vaginal mesh recall lawyer.

You should not have to suffer the consequences of the vaginal mesh recall whether you have been seriously or even permanently injured, are emotionally scarred or you suffered financially. The injuries sustained by vaginal mesh recall victims are very serious and range from pain to permanent damage.

Here are some of the side effects that women who had a vaginal mesh installed have experienced:

  • 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

Such severe side effects for a poorly tested product are deplorable and should not be tolerated by victims of the vaginal mesh recall. That is why we suggest that you absolutely must claim compensation from the manufacturers. Particularly as it seems that many of the vaginal mesh products were not made to go through the proper testing procedures before they released to the market.

See below for a list of vaginal mesh products that were included in the vaginal mesh recall and the manufacturers that were involved in distributing them:

  • Bard Avaulta Support System
