Dealing with the symptoms of a transvaginal mesh implant is not only extremely painful, but it can also be very embarrassing to talk about.

The FDA is warning women about the serious injuries that can occur after undergoing a transvaginal mesh device implant, and many of these symptoms are very private in nature.

The implants, which are porous and made of synthetic material, are used to treat the prolapse or “drop” of pelvic organs. A bladder prolapse is the most common organ that is treated with transvaginal mesh, but doctors have also used the device to treat the prolapse of the rectum, urethra, uterus, and small bowel.

Thousands of women are experiencing complications after the implant of transvaginal mesh devices in Kentucky and all over the United States. These complications include:

  • The mesh eroding through the vagina
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Pain, especially during sexual intercourse
  • Urinary problems
  • Vaginal scarring or shrinkage
  • Organ perforation
  • Neuromuscular problems
  • Recurrent prolapse

As you can imagine, another major complication are the emotional problems that women could face due to the stress of dealing with these injuries, especially since many times it is a hysterectomy that prompts the pelvic organ prolapse to occur.

Uterine prolapse may also be treated with surgery. The uterus may be removed through the vagina or a cut in the abdomen, and then the surgeon may tighten the support ligaments of the vagina. Laparoscopy (belly-button telescope surgery) may be used to try to resuspend the uterus and tissue around the vagina. A procedure called uterine suspension shortens and ties the ligaments of the uterus to other ligaments and muscles in the pelvis. comprehensive and informative site for mothers who want to learn about uterine prolapse or Uterine Prolapse Symptoms and find ways to deal with pain and stress of this condition.
