We can only hope that this case turns out to be in favor of the complainant just as how it ended for Christine Scott. I read an article from this site bladdermeshlawsuit . us / what-makes-transvaginal-mesh-d angerous/ and one can only imagine the damage mesh devices have been reported to cause when they fail to work. It's high time that these women get compensated for everything they have been through because of these devices.
