What Is Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh—also referred to as surgical mesh, hernia screen, or hernia patch—is a medical device that was developed to repair the body after a hernia removal surgery. It is inserted into the affected area during a surgical procedure to support damaged tissue around hernias as they heal. Pores in the mesh allow the body’s tissue to grow into the device.

What Is the Problem with Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh has many advantages. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), implanting hernia mesh after a hernia removal surgery can make a patient’s recovery time shorter and less painful. Studies also suggest that hernia mesh decreases the chances that another hernia will develop.

However, hernia mesh has its hazards as well. The mesh can migrate or shrink in the body after surgery, even years later, and can even perforate the surrounding tissue.

According to the FDA, the most common hernia mesh complications include:

  • Adhesion
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Organ perforation

The FDA’s warning and numerous lawsuits have resulted in many hernia mesh products no longer being available on the market. However, some recalled hernia meshes are still available.

What Are the Symptoms of Hernia Mesh Problems?

Symptoms of hernia mesh compilations differ based on the person and what exactly the problem is. Some of the most common complications and their symptoms are detailed below.

If your hernia mesh has lead to bowel obstruction, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Inability to pass gas or stool

Bowel perforation symptoms tend to include:

  • Abdominal rigidity
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Severe abdominal pain

Symptoms of a hernia mesh infection include:

  • Fever
  • Inflammation
  • Other flu-like symptoms

Mesh rejection symptoms often feature:

  • Swelling at the site of surgery
  • Tenderness or pain
  • Redness
  • Flu-like symptoms

It is highly recommended that you contact a doctor immediately if experiencing any of these symptoms following a hernia mesh surgery, especially if you have intense pain, a high fever, nausea, or unusual difficulties with basic bodily functions.

When to File a Lawsuit

Thousands of lawsuits against multiple hernia mesh manufacturers are currently in progress as of July 2020, including claims against Atrium, Bard Davol, and Ethicon. These lawsuits claim that the patients’ hernia mesh implants led to injuries or complications so severe that they were forced to undergo additional surgical procedures for treatment.

If you have been affected by a hernia mesh, you may be able to join one of these lawsuits. We advise that you inquire about doing so as soon as possible, as there can be strict time limits and deadlines. Our Fargo hernia mesh lawsuit attorneys take cases throughout North Dakota, Minnesota, and elsewhere in the U.S. We are happy to answer all of your questions during a free consultation and help you decide whether a lawsuit is the right move for you.
