Problems & Lawsuit
According to the Food and Drug Administration, in recent years, the most consistently reported complication to arise in connection with the use of surgical mesh to treat proplapse has been erosion: the mesh wears through the vaginal mucosa and exposes its rough and uncomfortable surface to the patient and her partner. Patients also report instances of mesh contraction (shrinkage). These complications are causing women to bleed, swell up, develop infections, and experience debilitating pain.
Women who have suffered devastating side effects as a result of vaginal mesh products—including the Protegen Sling, which has been recalled, and ObTape, which has been discontinued—are contacting vaginal mesh lawyers willing to file vaginal mesh lawsuits on their behalf.
