Trans-Vaginal Mesh Injury
Imagine getting a vaginal mesh implant for stress urinary incontinence (that annoying loss of small amounts of urine when you laugh, cough, jump and sneeze, etc.) and then having your health degenerate as a result of that mesh eroding into your colon.
That’s exactly what happened to Christine Scott of Bakersfield, CA. The mesh support system implanted in her body in 2008 left her incontinent, in chronic pain and unable to have intercourse. During the trial, she told jurors that for a period of five months she could urinate only through a catheter. She also had to endure eight additional surgeries in which the surgeons were unable to safely remove the implant.

The year Scott received that mesh implant, the FDA issued a health notification warning the public of the serious complications associated with trans-vaginal mesh for POP (Pelvic Organ Prolapse) and SUI (Stress Urinary Incontinence). At the time, they stated that the occurrence was rare. It wasn’t until July of 2011 that they modified their warning, stating that the serious complications of this type of implant were not rare.
FDA Safety Communication
Scott filed a lawsuit against her doctor and the mesh’s maker. It took her three and a half years to win that lawsuit, but she did–at the tune of $5.5 million dollars ($500,000 of which went to her ex-husband for the loss of their relationship).
Thousands of women have since filed lawsuits against the various makers of trans-vaginal mesh. The most common complications they site include pain (in general and during intercourse), infection, bleeding, mesh erosion, organ perforation and urination issues.
