A hernia mesh side effects lawsuit has been lodged by a patient who claims that defects and complications with the device led to serious problems, side effects and unnecessary pain.
Gore hernia mesh and Covidien Parietex caused injuries and a cancer scare, according to the hernia mesh side effects lawsuit.
Gore Micromesh and Covidien Parietex as well as other products allegedly led to a misdiagnosis of cancer since doctors had never been appropriately warned about the dangerous side effects linked to the hernia repair mesh.
This is not the first and is likely not to be the last hernia mesh side effects lawsuit that alleges manufacturers were responsible for informing the medical community and patients about the dangers, and in failing to do so, should be held accountable for resulting injuries.
The patient in this hernia mesh side effects lawsuit says that he had to undergo multiple hernia repair surgeries due to failures associated with different products beginning back in 2009.
In 2009, he received a Gore Micromesh patch for a right inguinal hernia and a Gore Tex patch. He later received the Gore Micromesh patch for repairable right inguinal hernia in February 2014.
That hernia mesh failed approximately two months later, according to the plaintiff’s hernia mesh lawsuit. In the summer of 2014, the failed hernia was repaired and replaced with the Covidien brand mesh and secured with a fixation system.
However, a sudden pulling sensation and tightness in the area in which the hernia mesh procedures had been carried out prompted him to go back to doctors.
In March 2017, he went through a CT scan and the doctors identified large lymph nodes. The patient was informed that he may have some type of metastatic cancer or lymphoma. He began preparations to become a cancer patient.
In April 2017, however, it was identified that the patient did not have cancer, rather that the Covidien Parietex mesh was causing the health and pain problems such as high blood pressure, random bouts of fever and pains.
The patient also reported burning sensations in his groin and testicles and unexplained nerve pain.
The hernia mesh side effects lawsuit says the manufacturers either knew about these risks and failed to disclose it or should have uncovered the risks in regular reviewing of their product, and that in failing to warn the medical community and patients about the problems, put all of those patients at risk of unnecessary injuries and pain.
No patient should have to suffer because of a dangerous medical device, but lawsuits all over the country show that patients end up dealing with unexpected and devastating side effects all too often.
