The vaginal mesh has been creating complications of huge proportions in women in the United States. The Mesh can perforate the bowel. This is extremely serious as it can cause one to become septic and lead to potential death.
Symptoms of a perforated bowel
Perforation of the intestine leads to leakage of intestinal contents into the abdominal cavity. This can cause a woman to become septic from bacteria.
Symptoms may include:
- Abdominal pain – severe
Symptoms of Sepsis for the Mayo Clinic
Many doctors view sepsis as a three-stage syndrome, starting with sepsis and progressing through severe sepsis to septic shock. The goal is to treat sepsis during its mild stage, before it becomes more dangerous.
To be diagnosed with sepsis, you must exhibit at least two of the following symptoms:
- Fever above 101.3 F (38.5 C) or below 95 F (35 C)
- Heart rate higher than 90 beats a minute
- Respiratory rate higher than 20 breaths a minute
- Probable or confirmed infection
Your diagnosis will be upgraded to severe sepsis if you also exhibit at least one of the following signs and symptoms, which indicate organ dysfunction:
- Areas of mottled skin
- Significantly decreased urine output
- Abrupt change in mental status
- Decrease in platelet count
- Difficulty breathing
- Abnormal heart function
To be diagnosed with septic shock, you must have the signs and symptoms of severe sepsis, plus extremely low blood pressure. You must get emergency medical attention immediately.

What is Sepsis ?
Sepsis is a condition in which the body is fighting a severe infection that has spread via the bloodstream. If a patient becomes “septic,” they will likely have low blood pressure leading to poor circulation and lack of perfusion of vital tissues and organs. This condition is termed “shock.” This condition can develop either as a result of the body’s own defense system or from toxic substances made by the infecting agent (such as a bacteria, virus, or fungus).
What is a perforated bowel ?
A perforated bowel is a medical emergency in which a hole in the bowel opens to allow its contents to empty into the rest of the abdominal cavity. The result is frequently sepsis or blood infection, which if not treated can cause almost immediate death. A perforated bowel can occur as the result of traumatic injury.
Symptoms of a perforated bowel include high fever and nausea. Those afflicted will also experience extreme abdominal pain which worsens when one moves. Intense vomiting may occur and result in dehydration. These very serious symptoms need emergency treatment. Those experiencing these symptoms should waste no time in seeing by a doctor. If you are experiencing mesh erosion you must understand the the mesh can perforate the bowel. You must not delay in seeking medical attention.
