If You’re Experiencing These Symptoms, You Might Have Defective Hernia Mesh
New Jersey hernia mesh lawyers help those who received defective products
You may have heard a lot of news recently about hernia mesh. Some companies, like Ethicon, owned by Johnson and Johnson, have had to market withdrawl their hernia mesh products. Some companies are being sued because their hernia mesh products failed and caused patients intense pain or injury. Some people must undergo surgery yet again to repair their hernia and to correct new problems caused by the faulty hernia mesh.
In this swirl of information, you may get confused about which companies and which products are problematic. Just a few of the names involved in big lawsuits include Physiomesh, Prolene 3D, Proceed, and Prolene Hernia System. The three big manufacturers are C.R.Bard (known as Bard), Ethicon, and Atrium. Bard manufactures the Kugel mesh, Ventrio St, and Ventralight St. Atrium manufactures the C-Qur, ProLite, and ProLoop. You know you’ve received a hernia mesh to correct your hernia, but you don’t know if you have one of these products. Should you be worried? Yes.
Enough hernia mesh products have been involved in lawsuits now that there is a good chance you have one of the problematic products in your body if you have undergone hernia surgery. However, that information alone is not enough to know you have a problem. You need to pay close attention to the symptoms you are experiencing to determine if you need to see a doctor and find out if your hernia mesh is failing.
Here are some symptoms or side-effects you might be experiencing:
- Pain at the surgery site
- Swelling and redness around the area
- Fluid build up
- Infection (symptoms can include fever and chills)
- Internal bleeding
- Recurring hernia
- Organ or nerve damage
- Internal scar tissue
Obviously, you won’t be able to tell if you have some of these side effects, such as the internal scar tissue. But if you go to your doctor complaining of some of the other symptoms, your full exam should reveal some of the other problems, as well. You may need to have an x-ray or other tests to reveal some of these other problems. But once you know the full extent of the side-effects you are experiencing, you can put together a more complete picture of how the hernia mesh is affecting you.
Of course, if you have had to get revision surgery for your hernia mesh, you know that the previous product failed you.
