Ohio Vaginal Mesh Injury Attorney
Vaginal mesh, sometimes referred to as a bladder sling, can cause very serious complications including severe pain, infections, and erosion of the mesh into the vagina. Women who suffer complications may require multiple surgeries, but that does not always correct the problem. If you or someone you love has been harmed by vaginal mesh, please talk to an Ohio vaginal mesh attorney today.
Ohio Vaginal Mesh Uses
Vaginal mesh is used during surgery to correct stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The mesh is inserted through an incision in the vaginal wall and is used to support internal organs. SUI and POP surgery can be performed without placing the mesh transvaginally and is just as effective.
Ohio Vaginal Mesh Injuries
Common vaginal mesh complications include:
- Erosion of the mesh through the vaginal wall
- Mesh contraction
Mesh contraction can cause vaginal tightening or shortening and severe pain. Erosion of the mesh and contraction can both cause severe pelvic pain, painful intercourse, and the inability to engage in sexual intercourse.
Other serious problems caused by vaginal mesh can include:
- Persistent odor
- Severe, ongoing pain
- Organ perforation
- Urinary problems
- Recurrence of SUI or POP
- Neuromuscular problems
- Vaginal fistulas
Permanent Vaginal Mesh Injuries
Women who experience vaginal mesh complications may require surgery, sometimes multiple surgeries, to attempt to correct the problems. However, the vaginal mesh injuries may be permanent. Women who have suffered vaginal mesh injury may endure life-long disabling pelvic pain and a significantly reduced quality of life.
Ohio Vaginal Mesh Injury Compensation
If you have been injured by vaginal mesh, you may be entitled to compensation which can pay for your medical expenses, lost income and more. An Ohio vaginal mesh lawyer can help you hold the device maker responsible for the harm that its product has caused you. Although no amount of money can replace your quality of life or truly make up for your suffering, you can receive financial compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and more.
