Vaginal mesh can be used to reinforce the vaginal wall after pelvic organs prolapse into the vagina, or to treat urinary incontinence. However, vaginal mesh can cause serious and painful side effects. The most common side effect is erosion of the vaginal mesh through the vagina causing pelvic pain, infection, bleeding, pain during sexual intercourse, organ perforation, and urinary problems. There have also been reports of recurrent prolapse, neuro-muscular problems, vaginal scarring/shrinkage, and emotional problems. Many of these complications require additional intervention, including medical or surgical treatment and hospitalization. If you suffer from these painful side effects after having vaginal mesh surgery, you may be entitled to compensation. To find out your legal options contact an experienced vaginal mesh attorney today.
