“Remains soft and pliable" This is a quote from the Ethicon Mesh sales brochure. " Mesh does not stay soft and pliable after implantation".This is quote from the Ethicon trial. Ethicon brochures still state that mesh will remain pliable even after implant. This is FRAUD. Why in the HELL won't some agency of the government jump all over this? They advertise OPENLY for a product that has thousands of complaints and still NOTHING from the FDA. Dispicable absolutely dispicable.

I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of meshes were used for hernia surgeries in 1995? I realize this may be an impossible question to answer, but the hospital that did my surgery does not keep records for more than 10 years.....I had the records dept. transfer me to the Doctor who did it, of course, he is on vacation, and his receptionist said she would get back to me early next week....we'll see, and will he remember/tell me the truth? In the mean time, I am feeling more pressure/pain daily, I am seeing a different Dr., different hospital next week, and I'd like to know what mesh they used before I go. Just wondering if anyone can give me any advise/info on this? Thank You, and best of luck to all of you

You are right Patty, it just shows how the system has failed all mesh victims. I am waiting to see how the FDA lies to get out of this mesh mess. This is crime at its best and prison time has to be handed out to stop these medical companys from making profit from mesh and having it pushed through the 510K loop holes. Its all about profits! Day six below,things are heating up!
http://meshmedicaldevicenewsdesk.com/latest-i...
what about the manufacturers that have had pre market trials. The patients who have volunteered to be the human white rats and mice. They go in and get these meshes put in. We read the reports of success and no failures to very few failures. Do these patients ever come out later and report publicly that their surgery failed later? Are they made to sign legalally binding gag orders forever keeping them from reporting that the mesh actually failed? Where are these people now? We never see long term follow ups of these human white rats. Only 90 days, 12 or 18 months. Are they forever legally gagged from reporting what really happens? Im smart enough to realize that these pre clinical studies are biased,. They wont publically report failures in their studies after market. The patients names are protected under federal law. It would be interesting to see how many mesh implant volunteers are still implanted with the same mesh.

Ive seen Dr. Petersons news video where he shows the hardened meshes that he removed from patients. They are hard. The manufacturers dont tell of hardening and shrinkage. They later blame the shrinkage and hardening on scar tissue.

hi All Meshed Up,behind the mesh implant,people that I know and myself have been diagnosed with diverticulitis or colitis. Is it possible that this illness could have come from the mesh implants,infection and all?

Alien Baby, your father in laws mesh falls under the category called Marlex Mesh. You will not find a law firm who will take on these non ring meshs. If you were in the MDL when a settlement was made like Micheal, you were offered 18k and some took the payout and the rest are still in the courts. After the Law firms and courts and health insurance got their take you might end up with 3k. Brad composix EX and Brad composix mesh ruined a lot of lives and you can tell him he is not alone. There are thousands of victims hurt by Marlex meshs.

Blair, thx for responding. I am going to do some research on this marlex mesh. his o.r. reports say it was the davol bard composix e/x, is the marlex just a different term or different brand/ I have found alot of the composix e/x's people who have been hurt too. this junk should be outlawed!! I actually contacted our local news channel 3kyw in philly and the producer is interested in doing the story. If you or anyone else on here is interested in MAKING DAVOL BARD PAY for their mistakes, reply and I will keep track of people to give to Ellen(the producer lady) and see if she wants some backstory or further proof that these things are defective. I am in the process of getting all of his records from first surgery, the explant surgery(it says the mesh was hard, not pliable, and firm grayish material) and I filed a complaint on the FDA's medwatch consumer complaint site.I for one, am not going to let them get away with this! At least I am going to try untill all avenues are exhausted!!

Alien Baby, Davol is the American company and Bard is the subsidiary company in Canada. Marlex is just a trademark, there are alot of vivtims from this mesh implant. Goggle Marlex mesh topics. I will post the meshs that were in the MDL but it looks like the law firms made a deal with Davol and our meshs got dropped in the settlement. Some did get payouts but signed papers not to disclose info. You should fight to bring more attention to all the victims of Marlex mesh. Lots of money made from these meshs.

I too have had a case filed since 2007. January 2012 they dropped my case, a week later they begged me to come back. On January 15, 2013 they told me they had a trail set for Feb. and that they believed that Bard will start make settlements at the end od Feb. or first part of March. Two days lat I get a call from the tell me that they are dropping my case again. What the hell are these people doing? I got a letter in the mail the day after I talk to them and it was all BS. I am trying to find a new lawyer to take over my case, I would recomend that anyone involved with them to find a new lawyer right away before they screw your case up too.

<quoted text> Good to see you posting again River rat! I was told by the Johnson group to call them when my ring breaks to file a law suit. So if you have one going stay with it for sure. I still say they and so many other law firms in this country that are taking advantage of mesh victims are a bunch of vultures. That includes you to Mark Mueller.
. Don't believe anything Johnson law firm tells you. All they'd oils string you along and the they will drop your case. I have beendealing with them since 2007 . I have had 2 of the meshs that were recalled. They both were removed and almost died from the infection that I had from the perferraded bowl I got from the mesh breaking in side of me.johnson just dropped my case for the second time.do not use them, they will just screw you over too.
