Pelvic mesh removal problems and what you can do

doctor talking to female patient

Pelvic mesh removal problems can be horrendously common, and they can leave patients with lasting damage and lifelong complications.

That’s why our lawyers are fighting for justice on behalf of a number of women who have suffered problems, and we’re representing them on a No Win, No Fee basis.

The lasting complications can literally turn a patient’s life upside down. If you’re reading this having suffered problems, I’m sure we’re preaching to the choir here. But what’s also important is also knowing what you can do about it, and that’s where we come in.

Common pelvic mesh removal problems

The most common pelvic mesh removal problems involve the inability to remove all or part of the mesh device once it has been fitted.

Transvaginal mesh is designed to be permanent, so when something goes wrong, it can actually be impossible to remove all of it. In some cases, women can be left with part of the device still inside which can leave victims with lasting pain and problems. Intimacy can be impossible to achieve, and the pain can cause nerve damage and mobility problems that tie in with chronic pain.

The complications really are horrendous, and some women have had difficulties in getting the help and support they need from the NHS. There can be lengthy waiting times, and in some cases, difficulties managing patients’ needs, which are often incredibly intensive.

Is private treatment an option?

Private treatment for pelvic mesh removal problems is an option, and it can be factored into a claim for personal injury compensation that we can represent you for.

It can go a few ways:

  1. You can fund treatment yourself and then claim recovery of the costs as part of a successful claim. So long as you can show that it was reasonable to have the treatment, the costs may be able to be claimed back;
  2. Ask the Defendant to fund the treatment, which they can sometimes do as they do have a duty to help you recover as soon as possible. This can form as part of an interim payment, which is a part payment early to over things like treatment costs;
  3. Settle a case and use funds from the claim to pay for private treatment.

There can be no guarantees in terms of winning a case, so that’s something that needs to be carefully considered. However, we do represent patients on a No Win, No Fee basis for vaginal mesh compensation claims.

How long do you have to claim for pelvic mesh removal problems?

Timeframes when it comes to claiming compensation for pelvic mesh removal problems is a tricky one. In these kinds of cases, there can actually be a number of potential deadlines you have to launch a case, and you don’t want to miss any or you may be unable to make a claim for compensation at all.

We always recommend that you start a claim as soon as you can. We’re happy to offer our initial advice on a free and no-obligation basis, but for a full claim assessment, we need to initiate a case first.

Just don’t leave it too late!
