If you’ve had a hernia, you know it can be painful. To repair it, you’ll likely have a hernia mesh surgery, where surgical mesh is used to provide additional strength to the surrounding tissue. The hope is that the mesh will take well and you won’t need another surgery for the same hernia.
According to the FDA, there are over one million hernia repairs performed each year, and most of them are done with surgical mesh. While the implanted mesh is permanent, sometimes the mesh fails. If that happens, there will be symptoms, such as high fever, nausea, vomiting, pain, bruising, swelling of your abdomen or difficulty using the restroom. It’s best to contact your doctor if you experience any of these issues.
If the mesh is defective or has failed, your doctor may require another surgery, called a revision, to remove all or some of the mesh. If this happens, and depending on certain factors, you may have a hernia mesh claim.
Have you experienced, or has a doctor noted, any of the following issues?
• Chronic Pain
• Bowel Obstruction
• Mesh Failure or Recurrence
• Perforation of Organs or Tissues
• Revision Surgeries
• Long-Term Complications
If you or a loved one experienced any complications due to a hernia mesh surgery, please contact our office at 601-607-3456 and speak with an attorney today.
