REMOVE IT ALL!! Stop hurting people with your dangerous products!!! Stop selling ALL mesh!!! Thankfully J&J's under the table activities are coming out into the open more and more!! They should be held accountable for EVERY human being that has suffered!! They should get more than fines
for the illegal behavior they continue to practice!!

Dani,
I happen to run across your post which lead me to wonder if you had the mesh surgery?

Sincerely,

This is a good move. However, it will not change the fact that many people have been affected. It also cannot stop people from filing a lawsuit. http://www.vaginalmeshlawsuit.com/

Johnson and Johnson has expressed their intention to discontinue sales of some of their pelvic mesh devices due to complications and increasing number of bladder mesh lawsuits. It is anticipated to fully halt at the first quarter of 2013. You may see http://www.bladdermeshlawsuit.us to be regularly updated of issues surrounding mesh implants.

It's good to know that the company has decided to stop the distribution of their mesh or bladder sling devices. These products have been reported to malfunction and cause unnecessary health problems in many unsuspecting women whose only wish was to be relieved from the pain and discomfort caused by their urinary or pelvic problems. You may see http://www.bladderslingrecall.us for more information on issues surrounding mesh slings.

It's high time that Johnson & Johnson stop selling some of their mesh implants. I came across some posts at bladdermeshlawsuit.us/ transvaginal-mesh-recalls/ and found some of the potential health risks that women may incur from these devices. While there's no telling if a recall may be apparent any time soon, ceasing the distribution of potentially faulty mesh implants may just do women a very big favor.
