You had the surgery because you simply couldn’t lead the kind of life that you wanted to lead without medical help. Your pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence caused you pain, embarrassment, and/or interfered with your daily life. Your doctor suggested a transvaginal mesh surgery and you agreed, but your quality of life may not have improved in the ways that you expected. Instead, you may be at risk of suffering serious side effects from your vaginal mesh surgery that further complicate your life and cause you pain.
Eight Risks of Transvaginal Mesh
Whether you have already had transvaginal mesh surgery, or are considering the procedure, it is important to know the risks that you may face. Specific side effects may include:
- Narrowing of the vaginal walls
- Recurrence of the urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse you were trying to treat
- Painful intercourse
- Other complications
These side effects may occur if the mesh erodes through the vaginal wall, the mesh shrinks, or the mesh otherwise does not perform as expected. According to the FDA, transvaginal mesh complications are not considered to be rare and each woman considering such an operation should have a conversation with her doctor about the specific need for surgical mesh to treat her condition, as opposed to other treatment options.
