Linda Gross is just one of many women who complained of serious problems that may be related to their mesh sling. I came across a post at http://plusist.com/health/complaints-involvin... that serious complications reportedly stemming from these devices have been more common than the FDA previously thought. Let's hope that other women, who may have also advanced with their legal complaints against J&J and other mesh manufacturers, also get the compensation they rightfully deserve.

I read some posts at bladdermeshlawsuit.us/ should-i-sue/ and found out the potential risks that may arise from a mesh implant. They actually sound serious and Linda Gross has had her fair share of these problems. I even read in the news that she was standing most of the time during the trial as she is not able to sit for more than 20 minutes at a time due to pain. I am surely glad that she finally gets compensated for all her injuries.

These number of lawsuits against mesh manufacturers may prove how these vaginal mesh devices may bring harm than good to patients. Because of this, the FDA advises women to proactively discuss the possible risks linked with vaginal mesh devices with their physicians before undergoing surgery.
