Hernia Repair Mesh Complications Could Be As Frequent As Transvaginal Mesh

Both failed medical devices are made from the same materials and frequently by the same company

Tuesday, November 24, 2020 - Hernias can occur from a work-related accident involving heavy lifting, playing sports, or being overweight. Most hernias are benign but will not heal themselves, and most eventually require surgery. There are two groups of doctors that specialize in hernia repair. One group of more experienced traditional surgeons recommend hernia repair using natural tissue and open surgery. The other group of younger, less experienced surgeons opts for using hernia repair mesh and laparoscopic surgery as the incision is smaller. Some doctors may have misled their patients by telling them that the recovery time for laparoscopic surgery is less than traditional surgery. Patients are advised that they will be as good as new in a week or two. A surgeon must still suture the hernia and also affix the hernia repair mesh in place over the top of the hernia with sutures. Telling a patient that their recovery time is less than a month is dangerous and can lead to a patient overexerting themselves and the hernia reoccurring or the hernia mesh dislodging and damaging other internal tissue or organs. Hernia mesh repair surgeons also tell their patients that hernia mesh is a better alternative and site a hernia reoccurrence rate of about 3%. Studies recently in England put that number more realistically at 33%, and Europe is bracing for an epidemic of hernia mesh failures. There is also no doubt that when a hernia repair mesh fails, the medical consequences can be much more than when a simple hernia repair procedure needs to be revised.

For example, Australia's 9 News.com reported on several men who have had hernia repair mesh complications and the devastating health consequences they have suffered. One 22-year-old man told of having a hernia mesh surgery to repair a work-related injury, and requiring 7 more surgeries spanning 17-years to retrieve pieces of hernia mesh that have broken free and had traveled within the abdomen causing excruciating pain as they lacerate and potentially block the bowels. The patient, now in his fifties, reports not being able to walk more than a few steps before having to stop and rest. The medical complications that failed hernia mesh can cause are similar to what women have experienced from vaginal support mesh devices that have malfunctioned as the medical device is made from the same materials and usually by the same company.

Women that have suffered hernia mesh malfunctioned report being turned away by some law firms that handle only vaginal support mesh cases. For some patients, there is no difference. Women can experience hernia mesh problems every bit as severe as men. When the hernia repair mesh is torn, the pieces are free to travel down to the bowels where lacerations cause internal bleeding and infection and also possible life-threatening blockages. The most incredible thing is that when hernia repair patients return to their surgeon complaining of chronic pain they are told by their doctors that the hernia mesh is not the problem. Some are told that the pain is all in their heads when in fact the surgeon's denials are because they have no idea how to find and retrieve the device.
