The US Drug Watchdog has dramatically expanded their national initiative designed to help women recipients of transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure because they are convinced the need is so great, and public awareness is so low.

The US Drug Watchdog now believes victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape or sling failure may be victims of what they consider to be one of the worst medical product failures ever. They also beleive there could easily be a thousands US victims, and repairing the damage might be extremely difficult.The group says,"The suffering, and or pain involved in a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure is almost impossible to comprehend. Our goal is to ensure no transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure victim gets left sitting on the curb with a destroyed life, and we will make certain all victims who call us get the names of the top women plaintiffs attorneys in the nation." According to the New York Times, "Transvaginal mesh failure occurs when the mesh fails to bind to a woman's pelvic tissues. As a consequence of this, the body rejects the mesh that has been sewn into it. As a result, the transvaginal mesh may start to poke its way through the vaginal wall and protrude out of the vaginal tissue. This complication is more commonly referred to as "erosion." Erosion may result in extreme pain, infection, bleeding, vaginal discharge, with no possibility for sexual intercourse." The US Drug Watchdog has begun a very aggressive initiative designed to assist women across the United States, who are victims of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure. The group is urging any woman, who has had the transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling surgical procedure done, and now has developed severe medical complications to call them anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
The US Drug Watchdog is indicating symptoms of a vaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure may include:
- Extreme pain during sexual intercourse caused by erosion.
- Mesh erosion through the vagina (the mesh is actually protruding out of the vaginal wall)
- Vaginal Infection
- Urinary problems (non stop UTI's)
- Organ perforation
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling failure. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a transvaginal mesh, tape, or sling that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these transvaginal mesh, tape, of sling failure victims get to the best possible attorneys, to ensure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal, and we will do our absolute best to make certain all of the attorneys are women." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
