Manufacturer Boardroom

The potential for long-term complications and issues that patients can suffer from when they undergo a procedure involving vaginal mesh remains a serious cause for concern.

These medical devices are approved for use still here in the UK, and they have been used here and across the globe for decades. Despite this, some women have suffered from some horrendous injuries and complications arising from the use of mesh, and we are here to help any victims to pursue the justice that they may deserve.

Protrusion injuries caused by vaginal mesh

Surigcla mesh problems

Since the dangers of vaginal mesh began to emerge, many different kinds of complications have been reported. Many of the complications associated with vaginal mesh involve significant pain and injury, with protrusion injuries sometimes being one of the more serious problems.

Protrusion can occur when vaginal mesh erodes or cuts through the vagina and affects surrounding tissue, and sometimes even nearby organs. The complication can demonstrate a failure of the mesh implant to stay in place, and it can be capable of causing severe pain for those affected. Protrusion can also lead to further side-effects and can lead to permanent or long-lasting problems and damage, so this is a very serious issue indeed.

Vaginal mesh and sexual function problems

mesh implant problems

In recent years, women who have been affected by vaginal mesh complications have come forward to reveal the adverse impact on their lives. Among the various implications of vaginal mesh are sexual function problems, due to the pain and injury that can be caused in this most intimate of areas.

The issue of impaired sexual function is one that underlines how mesh complications can drastically change the lives of those affected. Women who suffer from sexual function problems due to vaginal mesh may not only be in pain, but they may also be forced to alter their lifestyles, sometimes to the detriment of their relationships and overall well-being.

Many patients who underwent vaginal mesh surgery never thought they were compromising their sex life, with many being unaware of the significant risks associated with the aftermath of the procedure. As specialists in medical negligence and mesh compensation claims, we cannot right the wrong that has been done, but we can fight to ensure that eligible victims are fairly compensated for any harm caused by vaginal mesh.

Victims subject to poor advice about risks of vaginal mesh

medical care

With safety concerns dating back to over a decade, there are ongoing controversies surrounding vaginal mesh implants. They are still in use, despite known complications and calls to ban the treatment. Countless patient testimonies have condemned the implants for being unfit for purpose and causing debilitating pain, and much of the outrage can stem from poor advice about risks that some women received prior to treatment.

Trusting in the openness of their doctors, it appears that many women were not properly informed about the potential consequences of undergoing this controversial procedure. If you consider yourself a victim of inadequate advice about mesh treatments, you may be eligible to claim compensation with us, and you may be eligible for No Win, No Fee legal representation.

Permanent problems from vaginal mesh

mesh implant safety

Vaginal mesh, while still in use for things like the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, has caused severe complications for thousands of women. As a treatment that is designed to be permanent, the mesh can be difficult – or even impossible – to remove. As such, many patients are forced to live with permanent problems relating to their health and well-being.

Those who have experienced complications often had no idea that such risks were involved, which means that there can be ethical issues with regard to the treatment they have been given. For patients who have been subjected to this questionable surgical procedure, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim if a medical professional is found to be at fault.

The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers are strong opponents of this risky treatment. We are here to help anyone who has fallen victim to the devastating complications of vaginal mesh.

Vaginal mesh and the risk of organ perforation

multiple revision surgeries required

Potential vaginal mesh complications can be numerous. From reduced mobility to a relapse of urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, they can have life-altering effects on a person’s life. One of the most damaging complications can be organ perforation, whereby the damage can extend into other organs in the area.

In some cases, vaginal mesh surgery is not fit for purpose, either causing a relapse of the condition it is supposed to treat, or causing more pain and damage than the patient was experiencing before the treatment. Some women have been kept in dark about the extent of the risks, and the poor or insufficient advice of medical professionals means many could be entitled to claim compensation.

At the Vaginal Mesh Lawyers, we are here to provide women with advice when they have been let down.

Claim now for vaginal mesh compensation

Compensation claims

We are urging anyone who has not yet started a case to claim now for vaginal mesh compensation before it’s too late as many people are missing the deadlines.

We have previously published a great deal of advice about the time limits that people have to claim and the consequences of missing them. Recent news of the £50m settlement in Scotland looks to have triggered a few more people looking into claiming as we have received a few more enquiries lately than we normally do.

Sadly, we have had to turn people away due to the limitation period, in our view, having expired. As such, we are again warning about the consequences of leaving it too late.
