Stress Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Transvaginal Mesh
Thirteen million women have Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) – the loss of bladder control. SUI is caused by weakened muscles, often caused from childbirth or aging. The inability to control one’s bladder is extremely serious. A woman will do everything possible to control it. This is why so many women resort to vaginal mesh hoping that it will solve the problem.
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) occurs when the vagina and surrounding organs fall from their usual location. This occurs during or after menopause, childbirth or a hysterectomy. A significant POP condition requires surgery. A POP patient experiences vaginal pressure, pelvic pressure, a lump or bulge at the beginning of the vagina, and urinary, bowel or sexual dysfunction. It is a very painful condition which is why many women choose to undergo transvaginal mesh implantation with the hope of eliminating or lessening the pain associated with this condition.
Transvaginal mesh sling treatment was seen as the cure to these medical problems. Unfortunately, the mesh has caused countless cases of erosion, constriction, shrinkage, and/or movement, causing women to be left in a worse condition after the transvaginal mesh is implanted.
