Before 2005, surgery was used to address problems such as stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women. In recent years, many urologists and gynecologists have preferred to use vaginal mesh implants (also called transvaginal mesh implants) rather than other surgical methods. While the vaginal mesh approach provides certain advantages, it also exposes the patient to possible complications such as:
- Pelvic pain
- Erosion of the mesh through the vaginal wall
- Perforation of the bladder, bowel, uterus or blood vessels
- Pain during or after intercourse
Multiple surgeries may be needed to correct these problems.
If you have received a vaginal mesh implant and you have experienced any one of these or other complications, you should speak with your doctor. You should also contact an attorney concerning your right to compensation.
