How do you know if you have the bad mesh?

Good mesh. Bad mesh.

Transvaginal Surgical Mesh Lawsuit Information

In the United States, market data from manufacturers demonstrate that in 2010 approximately 300,000 women underwent surgical procedures to repair pelvic organ prolapse and approximately 260,000 women underwent surgical procedures to repair stress urinary incontinence.

Approximately one out of three pelvic organ prolapse surgeries used mesh and three out of four of these mesh procedures were transvaginal. So do the math, 80 percent were transvaginal mesh surgery.  

So, how do you know if you have the bad mesh?

Based on data from 110 studies including 11,785 women, approximately 10 percent of women who had the mesh surgery experienced mesh erosion within one year of surgery.

If you feel fine and are not suffering any side effects or pain, you may not have the bad mesh. Many of the painful side effects occur within one or two years.

  • You probably have the bad mesh if the mesh erodes through your vagina.
  • You probably have the bad mesh if you suffer from painful urinary problems and the pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence has returned.
  • You probably have the bad mesh if both you and your sexual partner have painful intercourse.

There are other symptoms of bad mesh but these are the most prevalent.
