Transvaginal mesh lawyers are no longer accepting mesh injury lawsuits for mesh implanted in a Louisiana Medical Center. Lousiana has a 1 year statute of limitations for product liability lawsuits. Your state statute has ran. There may be a way to toll the statute if your mesh was implanted after the state statute expiration date.
There have also been reports of recurring prolapse, vaginal scarring, vaginal shrinkage, and emotional problems related to the mesh. These complications often result in a patient requiring additional treatment, including surgery and further hospitalization.
The mesh helped keep the organs in place, but indications are that it harmed more than it helped. Some women who had the surgery using it have reported “painful sexual intercourse, infections, urinary problems, overall discomfort, and bleeding, usually from the mesh eroding through the stitched tissue or from skin contracting tightly around it.” Last year, 75,000 women had the vaginal form of the corrective surgery, and in the past two years, adverse event reports to the FDA have quintupled.
The FDA has also received reports that three women died in connection with the surgery, and several other women are suing the device makers. One of their lawyers, who represents 75 patients, told the Globe, “It is unfortunate that the FDA doesn’t come to these conclusions before all these people get hurt.”
