Persistent pain is a symptom of vaginal mesh erosion and removal. If persistent pain exists before vaginal mesh is removed, the likelihood of continued pain post-removal is very high.
According to a recent report from the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, “What Is New in the Use of Mesh in Vaginal Surgery?”, about 51% of women who experienced persistent pain prior to removal of their transvaginal mesh continued to experience pain post-removal.
The doctor who authored the report, Dr. John R. Fischer, was quoted by WBUR, the NPR news station in Boston, as saying that “of the many symptoms that are treated with mesh excision, persistent pain may be the most difficult.”
Unfortunately for many of the patients whose cases were reviewed for the report, a surgical procedure intended to relieve pain and suffering caused by defective transvaginal mesh resulted only in a continuation of pain and suffering.
