What Are Symptoms Caused by Hernia Mesh Device Defects?
A hernia mesh device can trigger negative bodily reactions after implantation,
especially if the patient is allergic to the synthetic product or tissue.
Some symptoms may not manifest until up to five years after the surgery.
In other cases, the hernia mesh device actually moves and causes complications
due to its unplanned, internal migration within the patient. All complications
related to hernia mesh device defects can become severe or life-threatening,
and should be addressed with immediate medical attention. Emergency surgery
to remove the hernia mesh device may be necessary in some cases.
Adverse effects caused by hernia mesh device complications can include:
- Internal bleeding
- Infection of hernia site
- Hernia recurrence
- Severe abdominal pain
- Organ damage and abrasion
- Dangerous intestinal blockage
- High fever caused by autoimmune system reaction
- Blood pressure decline
- Liver failure
- Lessened white blood cell count
What Sort of Compensation Can I Pursue in a Hernia Mesh Device Lawsuit?
The complications that can arise due to a hernia mesh device failing, migrating,
or leading to another injury may require extensive hospitalization and
emergency medical care to address. The cost of these treatments can be
steep, and a full recovery might not be possible for weeks, months, or
longer. People injured due to a defective or recalled hernia mesh device
should be compensated for medical costs and lost wages, as well as for
