Childbirth, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, and You
In the days and weeks following childbirth, thousands of women every year discover that they have suffered a pelvic organ prolapse. For them, a weakening of the pelvic muscles allows lower organs like the bladder to descend into the vagina. Not surprisingly, this condition is painful and embarrassing.
Traditionally, doctors treated pelvic organ prolapse with surgery. However, a newly created medical device known as a transvaginal mesh replaced the older approach with a less invasive procedure. Sadly, however, a distressing and not uncommon number of women have experienced adverse health outcomes, such as the mesh piercing the “fallen” organs or disintegrating into pelvic tissue.
Does this sound familiar? New mothers have plenty on their minds. They shouldn’t also have to worry about the discomfort of pelvic organ prolapse and the pain and suffering associated with a failed medical product. If you want to know more about the risks of this medical device and how victims may have a case against the manufacturer, you should talk to the legal professionals at Fears Nachawati.
