Negligent aftercare for vaginal mesh: claim compensation

mesh implant safety

If you have suffered as a result of negligent aftercare in relation to pelvic mesh surgery, you could be entitled to claim compensation now with No Win, No Fee legal representation.

A lot can go wrong with pelvic mesh procedures, and the impact in terms of complications and how they can cause permanent problems remain a significant cause for concern. Despite what we know about how badly things can go wrong, and despite thousands of women worldwide suffering, this controversial procedure is still being carried out here in the UK. Although a number of changes have been implemented that are supposed to avoid women being put at risk, we still see people being harmed. And when it comes to problems with aftercare, patients can suffer horrendously.

What could happen?

Surgery for vaginal mesh implantation or removal (and potentially replacement) can be a risky procedure. This is why regulations have changed so much in recent years, although they still do not yet go far enough in my view. But, given that the risks of this controversial procedure can be life-altering, it is important that any form of negligent aftercare is avoided.

Negligent aftercare could occur in a number of ways. Firstly, there should always be a clear and detailed aftercare plan to make sure that any potential problems are identified quickly. Patients should also be fully aware as to what this means prior to the treatment taking place to ensure that they can provide clear consent for it, which is a matter that has been at the centre of a number of claims for compensation. Patients also need to be taken seriously when it comes to presenting with problems, as there have been numerous stories about women presenting with issues that were not taken seriously at all. We know our bodies and we can often be the best judge to know when something doesn’t feel right, so it is then for the professionals to understand this and help when they need to.

No one should suffer as a result of problems with aftercare at all, but it can happen for both those having the procedure for vaginal mesh to be fitted, and for those having it removed. If something goes wrong, we may be able to help.
