There has been recent media attention regarding pelvic mesh implant surgery, which may be used to treat incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse conditions which may occur for example, following child birth.

However, possible complications of the use of the mesh include erosion of the mesh and perforation of organs, leading to terrible ongoing physical symptoms such as disabling pain and chronic incontinence, as well as emotional trauma.

These symptoms may affect the capacity of sufferers to perform day to day activities, necessitating help from family and friends. The symptoms may affect a person’s capacity to work so they may be struggling on a reduced income, or no income at all.

Many sufferers may not know if there is anything that can be done about their condition. Some may assume that nothing can be done and that they must accept their ongoing pain. Equally, sufferers may not be aware of their legal options for seeking compensation in connection with their ongoing symptoms.

It is alarming that some people may not have been made aware of the risk of these complications happening to them, before they made the decision to have the procedure.

If the risks of the procedure had been fully detailed, perhaps the patient would not have undergone the treatment. What if there were less risky treatment options available, and these were not offered to a patient?  What if the doctor who performed the procedure did so incompetently?

Further, the particular mesh product that was used may have been poorly designed and not thoroughly tested.

In these and some other circumstances, a person adversely affected by a medical procedure may be entitled to compensation.
