Unfortunately, mesh can erode and fail, causing bleeding, pain during intercourse, vaginal scarring, and urinary tract infection, among other symptoms.  The FDA not admits that mesh failures are “not rare.”

Mesh implants were mainly manufactured by four companies – American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific Corp., Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon and C.R. Bard.

Responsibility and fault are not always synonymous.  Say that five times fast.
