You may not be sure of the types of questions that you should ask, or who you should turn to, especially if your doctor has told you that there is not much else that he or she can do to help your medical condition.
That is why the Kentucky transvaginal mesh lawyers at Gray and White Law urge anyone who is experiencing painful side effects from a transvaginal mesh implant to follow these important steps in order to preserve their claim.
- Talk to your doctor. Explain to her the side effects that you are experiencing, making sure to reference the FDA's July 2011 warning about transvaginal mesh implants.
- Make a list of all of your symptoms along with the dates that they started, making sure to note whether or not those side effects still continue to occur. Keep all of this information in one place, such as in a journal or a notebook.
- Write down the dates of when your surgery and subsequent treatment occurred and the reasons for that surgery (incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, etc.) You may need to reference your medical records if the surgery occurred years ago.
- Talk to a lawyer experienced in helping women with their transvaginal mesh injuries. Make sure to ask the lawyer what he or she plans on doing to help you, including working diligently to order all of your corresponding medical records and bills, as well as fight for you during litigation, if necessary.
