I had hernia surgery in may 2006--incisinual. It was not 4 months until I had multiple hernia all along the incision. Mesh was used but i'm not sure what kind. i've been putting off surgery because i'm afraid after a few months, i will have the hernia's again. My stomach looks like it has big knots in it.

I was so glad to read JJW's comments.
I just saw my Dr. today and I am scheduled
for an incisional hernia surgery in two weeks.
He is using mesh. So do you really thinks this
is safe? I have a wonderful surgeon and I trust him with this.
Have you had the mesh used on you, JJW????

Serious health issues and deadly complications were linked to surgical meshes. In fact, as of now, there are thousands of vaginal mesh lawsuits filed by recipients of these faulty devices in the United States. But the downside is that there are still many of these devices available in the market today.

Numerous lawsuits filed by patients who suffered from mesh-related injuries are reportedly calling for a possible mesh product recall on devices that are still out in the market. There are still no news on any product recall anytime soon though. For updates regarding mesh implants, you may visit http://www.bladderslingrecall.us/what-mesh-de...

I had inguinal hernia repair in 2002 in Australia, terrible pain going up to underneath ribs on both sides, bowel and bladder problems ever since. They claim they used Surgipro mesh 4x7 inches. Doctors here in Australia refuse to operate. I took opiates for three years for pain relief, which caused more problems. I have been impotent since the surgery. Has any one else had bad experience with Surgipro mesh?

It seems as though these devices bring about more problems than positive outcomes to patients. I found a post at bladdermeshlawsuit.us/ transvaginal-mesh-recalls/ which highlights some of the mesh-related problems that may have led to some of the most well-known mesh recalls in the US. It may come as no surprise why more and more people are moving forward with a legal complaint.

If it's really painful, I think you should see your doctor and discuss your options. You may also want to seek a second opinion. While surgical mesh is really controverial now, most of these are those for POP and SUI which are done transvaginally. This is the type that has resulted to severe complication and serious injuries to thousands of women. You may want to do further research on the effects of mesh on hernia disorders which are usually done through the abdomen. For a background on these materials, you may want to check articles found in http://www.zuarticles.com/author-details-19-8...

Do the patches have serial numbers or other identifying marks? Have the doctors who installed the hernia meshes been willing to give the patients information about the meshes?
Thanks
