The US Drug Watchdog says, "After talking with over 1000 victims of a transvaginal mesh failure, we are now calling the transvaginal mesh failure issues the absolute worst mess we have ever seen for women, and the damages are literally beyond comprehension. We are also talking about a potentially huge number of US women. According to the New York Times, in 2010, about 185,000 women underwent procedures in which mesh was implanted vaginally to treat urinary incontinence. That was 2010 alone." Transvaginal mesh failure occurs when the mesh fails to bind to a woman's pelvic tissues. As a consequence of this, the body rejects the mesh that has been sewn into it. As a result, the transvaginal mesh may start to poke its way through the vaginal wall and protrude out of the vaginal tissue. This complication is more commonly referred to as "erosion." Erosion may result in extreme pain, infection, bleeding, vaginal discharge, with no possibility for sexual intercourse. The US Drug Watchdog's initiative has been designed to assist women who have developed severe medical complications that have resulted from a transvaginal mesh failure, such as erosion, and because the damages are so gender specific the group is promising victims the names, and contacts of national caliber women attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues. The group is urging any woman, who has had the transvaginal mesh surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe complications to call them anytime at 866-714-6466.
The US Drug Watchdog is indicating symptoms of a vaginal mesh implant failure may include:
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like a transvaginal mesh product. We cannot emphasize enough this is a national problem that has impacted women in every state including New York, California, Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arizona, Idaho, and Washington. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a transvaginal mesh that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these transvaginal mesh failure victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal, and we will do our absolute best to make certain all of the attorneys are women." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
