In early September, CBS Denver profiled a woman who received a transvaginal mesh implant to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The woman, Rose Lucero, underwent an operation to receive the mesh in 2008, and three years later, she began experiencing severe pain.
According to CBS Denver, Lucero’s pain started in her back, and then became much more severe when the pain moved to her legs and feet. The pain has been so debilitating that it has impacted her life to such a degree that she can no longer engage in day-to-day activities.
Lucero links her pain to the transvaginal mesh implant, and as such, she is currently trying to get the transvaginal mesh removed. Lucero filed a transvaginal mesh lawsuit in order to acquire the funds to do so.
Between 2008 and 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration received 2,874 adverse event reports linking transvaginal mesh to injuries and health complications, according to CBS Denver. These reports link transvaginal mesh to organ damage, mesh erosion, mesh contraction, infection, bleeding, pelvic area pain, and painful intercourse.
