The cure may be worse than the symptoms

Thousands of women across Columbus, Ohio, and the country have had vaginal mesh, or bladder sling, surgically implanted in an attempt to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

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.
