Whether the operation is fully or partially successful, or not successful at all, you may have a valid legal case. We represent a number of women making claims for compensation arising from pelvic mesh problems, and the pain and trauma of removal and revision procedures can be an integral part of a claim.
Some women may need to undergo multiple operations, and it may be difficult to get the best help with the NHS. There are private options potentially available in some cases which is a part of the service that we can offer.
Claiming compensation for pelvic mesh removal
Claiming compensation for pelvic mesh removal is one of the primary things that we deal with when it comes to representing people for mesh claims.
If something has gone wrong and a patient is suffering with problems and complications, removal of the mesh may be the only resolution. However, as the mesh is designed to be permanent, it’s not easy to remove it. In fact, it can be incredibly difficult, which means that these operations can be problematic.
In some cases, women can be left with internal damage and lifelong problems even when the mesh has been removed. We take this into account when we value a claim for compensation, as you can claim for any and all pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. You can also be entitled to claim for additional losses and expenses, which can include the costs of private surgery and treatment in some cases.
What if your mesh can’t be removed?
In some cases, it can be impossible to remove (or completely remove) vaginal mesh. In these cases, how do you go about claiming compensation for pelvic mesh removal?
You can still claim for any attempt to remove the mesh, which can still involve a complex and painful invasive surgical procedure. Whether it’s successful or not, you can still claim for the suffering and complications caused, so you can still have a case.
We appreciate that any women left with impossible to remove vaginal mesh is a terrible situation to be in. Although no amount of compensation can ever undo what has happened, and we can’t turn back the clock, a claim is designed to make sure that some form of justice is served.
