Yes. The injuries and complications that have been reported in Kentucky and around the nation are not limited to one type of transvaginal mesh made by one manufacturer. Instead, there are a variety of types of mesh devices that have been used in Louisville surgeries, that were made by different manufacturers, and that have failed women in similar ways.
What This Means for You If You’ve Already Had TVM Surgery
Some medical device failures are more limited in scope. For example, there could have been a design flaw in one kind of device made by a single manufacturer. Since that is not the case with transvaginal mesh devices, it is important for all women who have had transvaginal mesh surgery to repair pelvic organ prolapse or other conditions to know:
- The symptoms of a TVM complication. Some of the symptoms of a transvaginal mesh complication may include urinary incontinence, painful sexual intercourse, unusual bleeding, and pain.
- What to do if an injury occurs. If you experience any of the symptoms described above, or anything else that doesn’t seem right, then you should contact your doctor for an immediate consultation.
It is also important to know that you may not be responsible for the costs of your injury.
