What Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh is a unique medical product that is supposed to aid in the repair of a hernia. The purpose is to help repair and prevent recurrent hernia issues. Doctors place this surgical mesh around the damaged tissues to supposedly speed the healing process through pores in the mesh. The idea was for oxygen flow. However, many patients experience severe complications and pain from the mesh.

Why Are There Complications With Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh functions as a temporary bandage to shrink the hernia and prevent reoccurring issues. However, most manufacturers coat the bandages to help prevent the mesh from adhering to the organs. Adhesion is a common issue from hernia mesh and can lead to severe and painful complications.

Many patients not only suffer from adhesion complications, but also from severe side effects from the coating on the bandages. The mesh adheres to the surrounding scar tissue, and, in many cases, may migrate to other organs, causing damages or health issues like bowel obstruction or perforation. These are serious and painful health issues.

What Are the Complications From Hernia Mesh?

According to the FDA, there are complications with hernia repair, especially with recalled mesh products. Research has shown that many patients who underwent a mesh repair procedure or revision surgery  experienced painful complications such as obstructed bowel, bowel perforation, and fluid build-up. In many cases, patients experienced these complications when the mesh migrated to other organs. Many patients unfortunately require revision or additional surgeries to ‘fix” these painful complications.

Whether these complications occurred a few days after the  procedure or a few years, patients experienced serious health issues as a result. Some complications from hernia mesh include:

  • Bladder injuries
  • Hematoma
  • Bowel issues
  • Vascular problems
  • Infections surrounding the surgical site
  • Mesh migration
  • Chronic pain

Many patients experienced these and other painful symptoms after surgery using hernia mesh. If you’ve experienced any complications after hernia mesh was used in your surgery, seek medical treatment immediately and contact us for your free consultation.

Do You Qualify For Compensation?

Some people don’t experience complications or painful side effects after a hernia mesh is used in surgery until months or years later. While some patients go months or years without a serious health issue, many can experience severe and painful health issues years later in life. Pain, infection, adhesion, and bowel obstruction are the most common painful side effects from this procedure.
