Vaginal mesh and mental health can go hand-in-hand, and it is important that this part of the process that women go through is a part of the legal advice and representation that we offer.
Read on for some advice about vaginal mesh and mental health issues and how this can be a part of any legal case that we take forward for you.
Vaginal mesh and mental health go hand-in-hand
Problems with vaginal mesh and mental health can go hand-in-hand. Many women who suffer problems and complications arising from a pelvic mesh procedure often suffer serious and long-term issues. Many will never fully recover, as there can be instances where permanent damage is a factor. Some women can be left with the mesh, or pieces of it, still inside them and it’s impossible to remove it.
Due to the seriousness of the injuries, the impact can affect every aspect of a person’s life. It can stop women from being able to walk or work ever again. It can leave career options limited, if there are any that remain. It can mean even simple social and domestic tasks are just no longer possible. Given the impact it can have on the sexual anatomy, it can lead to interpersonal relationship complications as well.
All this can, understandably, take a toll on a victim’s mental health. Speaking from experience in terms of how a serious injury can affect the short and long-term mental health of a person, it is not something to be ignored. It can be incredibly damaging, so it is important that women are able to access the help and support they need for this aspect of pelvic mesh problems.
What can we do to help?
We often use this phrase, but it still rings true to this day. We cannot turn back the clock and we cannot undo what has been done. In reality, no amount of compensation may ever make up for what has happened to you, but it is an option for getting some form of justice for what has happened to you.
And it can go a long way, and it can help and assist in several ways too.
As part of a successful claim for pelvic mesh compensation, we can account for the mental health aspect. In some cases, private treatment can also be obtained, which is something that can then be included as part of a case with the costs recovered from the other side. This can help a lot as counselling and talking therapies are designed to reduce the impact of mental health concerns, so this really can help.
We represent a number of women for cases so we have seen first-hand how bad the problems and complications can be, and this is why we understand how this can help.
