It was recently reported on the Victoria Derbyshire programme on the BBC that the NHS is using mesh to repair hernias which leave many patients in chronic pain.
It is has emerged that more than 800 women are taking legal action against the NHS over the use of vaginal mesh implants as a treatment option for stress urinary incontinence.
Although the material is a recommended method for treating the condition, many patients have been left in agonizing pain and experience a raw burning sensation following the use of mesh.
This can have a devastating effect upon the patient’s life leading to remedial surgery to have the mesh removed but can still leave a poor outcome for the patient.
Healys have already successfully pursued claims on behalf of patients who have been adversely affected by the use of mesh for either hernia repairs or vaginal mesh implants.
If you have experienced problems following the use of mesh and have been left in chronic pain, contact Healys Solicitors in Brighton who will be able to advise you on the merits of your claim.
