The potential dangers of pelvic mesh can be completely life-altering. They can be so severe to the point that the way in which someone lives their life is changed significantly.
This is why it is important that victims’ voices are heard, and that support is in place for anyone affected by the potentially substantial consequences of mesh gone wrong. If the problems have arisen from negligence, it is our job to do all we can to help by way of a legal case for compensation.
The potential dangers of pelvic mesh
The potential dangers of pelvic mesh and how this can affect patients can never be understated. In some cases, the problems can be so severe that lives are changed forever. Some women have been unable to walk or work ever again as a result of their vaginal mesh device going wrong, and the impact of this is obviously substantial.
When a medical procedure can lead to such severe and horrific consequences, especially when more could have been done to have prevented the problems, the degree of care that needs to be taken is significant. You can read more about the potential complications of vaginal mesh here.
More needs to be done to protect people
Campaigners have been warning about the dangers of pelvic mesh for years. We, as specialist vaginal mesh lawyers, have been warning about them and advising and representing people for legal action for years as well. On top of this, there has been a great deal in the way of recommendations and swathes of data on how people have been affected by pelvic mesh complications.
You would think that all this would be enough. However, despite all this, vaginal mesh is still being used. We are still advising and representing people who have fallen victim to serious and life-altering complications. We are still seeing instances where more could and should have been done to have prevented patients coming to harm.
Many patients who have suffered have felt ignored. This includes those who have gone on to suffer serious and debilitating injuries. This includes instances where people’s lives have been turned upside down due to how severe their problems have been. And this can all have a significant impact on the immediate family of those affected as well.
Ultimately, much more needs to be done to prevent new instances of vaginal mesh going wrong, and much more needs to be done to support those who have suffered. We know of the stories where some women have been turned away when presenting symptoms of problems, and some being led to believe that there was nothing wrong with them. This should not be happening at all.
In a claim for vaginal mesh compensation, obtaining private treatment is sometimes necessary. Ideally, such support should be readily available anyway, but this is not always the case. And with the dangers of pelvic mesh being so severe in terms of how people can suffer, it is clear that support needs to be substantial.
