Prolapse and Vaginal Mesh

Aggressive Personal Injury Attorneys Tackle Cases Involving Prolapse Surgery with Mesh Implants

Tirelessly fighting for a prolene mesh recall

Vaginal prolapse, sometimes referred to as pelvic organ prolapse (POP), is an uncomfortable but not life-threatening condition. In 2010 alone, nearly 300,000 women elected to have transvaginal mesh surgery to correct the problem. Now the truth about TVM has been told, hundreds of these women are embroiled in court cases.

The attorneys at Phillips Law Offices can help you if you are suffering from the effects of transvaginal mesh surgery because of vaginal prolapse. We have the years of experience needed to help you get the compensation you deserve.

You may have vaginal prolapse symptoms

Vaginal prolapse is a condition where the uterus, bladder or bowel sags into the vagina. It’s a result of weakness in the pelvic and vaginal muscles and tissues. Women who have had a hysterectomy may be more likely to suffer, as may women who have given birth. The common symptoms include:

  • Pelvic heaviness
  • Difficulty defecating
  • Protruding mass bulging out of the vagina
  • Back aches
  • Recurrence of incontinence
  • Vaginal bleeding

These symptoms should go away after surgery. Patients who opted for TVM surgery are entitled to compensation if the surgery caused additional pain and discomfort on top of the prolapse. Our transvaginal mesh lawyers in Chicago can help you if you have a legitimate claim.

Additional problems caused by TVM

Handling prolapse symptoms alone can be painful enough. In addition to the symptoms associated with vaginal prolapse, transvaginal mesh patches cause problems of their own when:

  • The mesh moves. Mesh patches have been known to move, shrink and erode.
  • You’re intimate. TVM patches can cause pain for both parties during sexual intercourse.
  • The problem reoccurs. Your original vaginal prolapse can occur again, and you may need multiple surgeries to correct it.

At Phillips Law Office, we want what’s best for our clients. You shouldn’t have to suffer because of poor testing practices on the part of the pharmaceutical companies. If you’re interested in transvaginal mesh lawsuit information, we can provide up-to-date news and discoveries.
