Following a transvaginal mesh surgical procedure, individuals might experience numerous symptoms of mesh failure, including:
Most often, complications attributed to a failure of the surgical mesh are the result of the mesh’s failure to bond properly to the vaginal tissue. Additionally, mesh erosion or mesh extrusion occurs when the edges of the mesh protrude through the vaginal walls into nearby organs. This protrusion can result in damage to the organs and significant pain to the individual.
Surgeons might elect to perform another procedure to repair the previous damage. Unfortunately, these additional procedures can result in new complications or worsening conditions. It is imperative that you contact a skilled Arkansas lawyer as soon as possible in these situations.
