Emergecy left femoral hernia repair April 2007 with prolene mesh. July 2008-Had a couple of nerve blocks, then Re-operated on Oct 14 2008, found a defect over Coopers ligament with fatty tissue protruding into the femoral ring-a PHS mesh repair was carried out. The defect was filled with PHS mesh. Feb 2010 nerve was clipped, April 2011 hospitalized-Huge mass of infection mass is the size of a grapefruit.....I cant sit, stand, lie, walk without severe pain, chronic infection and pain. Im being operated on Jan 2012-mesh is being removed along with the mass. surgeon is hoping that the hernia has closed on its on as the mesh is now floating freely in pieces, if it hasnt healed they are not sure how they will close it. they will firstly try to get rid of the infection that they say ive had since 2007, this could take a year or so to rid my body intirely of the infection. they they will go back in and try to close the hernia. ive contacted a lawyer and since its past the 2yr mark since the original surgery i cant sue, and malpractice suits are hard to prove here in canada-they want $5000 started-but like i said ive past the 2yr mark, ive reported the doctor to the BC physicians and surgeons. Ive applied for cpp disabilty as i have osteoarthritis in my lower back, knees, hips and hands, i have fibro as well....my upcoming surgery in jan 2012....no promises!

I'm working on a story about the kugel settlement and would like to talk to folks about whether or not they will settle and what, if anything, they've been told. I prefer to use your name for the story but don't have to if I can verify who you are. This will be on Mesh News Desk, contact me there.

( http://meshmedicaldevicenewsdesk.com ).

It appears the settlement number is the key and losing the first bellwether may have reduced it - any thoughts?

1.5 million was a good settlement and all cases should be judged by this.
but lawyer&court forceing 52% from victims should be a fredral felony with no future medical ect this is difrent then any other neglagent cases,seems this court is trying to set a pattern for other big wrong doers to get out of all the crimes and life long human damages they cause.
another fed agency should take a very close look at whats going on here befor its to late and lawyers and courts across this contry will sell out for the right price

Checks were supposed to be received by Christmas IF there was a large enough percentage of people cooperating. Unfortunately that didn't happen. I received a letter a week ago stating that the new anticipated due date is February 2011. In the meantime, those who have not settled have allowed Davol to continue to accrue interest on the money they set in the account to pay us. They will be getting this interest, not us, so in a sense they are helping Davol make money instead of paying it out. I had consultations with surgeons this month to repair the damage the mesh has caused with an anticipated surgery date in January. Now, since the money didn't come in I've had to delay my surgery. It seems unfair that those of us that are willing to settle are being penalized by those who aren't. Also, maybe my law firm is different but they are paying 8% of the court fees and I am paying 4% leaving me 52% of the award.

How nice of you to assume how much I am receiving. Your ignorance in your postings is obvious. Rest assured that the amount will cover my medical costs. Thank you, ever so much, for your concern.

Joanna,you should not have to pay for your medical costs. All we are asking for is a fair settlement for all and all future medical costs ,paid for by Bard/Davol. We are all disabilied from this mesh implant and need more surgery's. If they want to treat each case one by one they better look at our loss of income this mesh implant caused and yes there is enough proof for all to get 1.5 million. Time to get back into the court room and make Motley Rice earn their money.

You talk about compassion? What guarantees there would have been larger settlements? Are you forgetting that not all cases that were brought to trial resulted in a monetary windfall? After waiting all this time I was finally given the opportunity to try to repair some of what was done to me but because people who never even had issues with their mesh want to become millionaires I am forced to continue waiting. Granted there are many, many people who have suffered as I have and would like to have more compensation for all the damage that was done to them and I understand that. I also would have liked to have had more money and, quite frankly, no amount of money would be a fair compensation. But, I am also realistic and would like to just get this nightmare over with. I feel that it is unfair to treat everyone as a group. If an individual is willing to settle they should be allowed to. If others, don't, that is their right. But each person's individual decision should not effect anyone else. In the meantime the money that is sitting in an account to pay out the settlements is continuing to accrue thousands and thousands in interest. Interest payable to whom? Davol/Bard. So, in a sense, you are keeping me from my much needed money but helping them get richer! I have no problem continuing the battle to make the public aware of these dangerous products but I should not be faulted for wanting my personal issues rectified first. Compassion? Nope. As you so eloquently stated, I'm the one getting screwed. Again!

Happy New Years Everyone. 12/29/11. Question on Proceed Mesh? I just received an e-mail from a friend. Stating that their is a recall as of Dec. 15,2011 on the Ethicon J&J Company (PROCEED-Code PCDG1 Lot # BMG618). Potential for delamination resulting in EXPOSURE of underlying POLYPROPYLENE MESH which could potentially result in adhesions and fistulas.

I agree with you no one has to settle, go to court ,it will take years to try all of these cases ,not one or two ,more like 20+, it is up to each person or family what is best for them my moms funeral isnt even paid for davol put her in the ground my family has had to live with the memory of watching her die we want this done. It has been terrible on everyone we will do what is best for us be it settle or go to court. I expect everyone to do the same.

whoever judged clueless trust me I am not. I know whats going on with my families cases. WE know who we have to pay its not Motley Rice trust me. My advice to all of you is worry about yourself, what anyone else decides to do is not your problem or how much you get. They make a offer you say yes or no. Settle or court. You get to decide. You want to go to court then do so. I will say this Davol has never and will never make enough money to make right what they did to my mom.....SHE IS DEAD what anyone else gets is not my concern I hope the best for everyone but Davol is ready to go to trial or settle it does not matter to them which one you do. They are prepared for either...and the shame is they have the money to do it. I know this because I called and asked their council. Thats what I was told.
