Have you had a second opinion? A dear friend of mine had to have a bladder sling and she ended up with gang green that was all in her vagina and abdomen. She didn't take part in the class action lawsuit where they sue the companies and the physician for malpractice (her Urologist is a good friend and paid for all the medical treatment she needed to fix everything and remove the sling) but did sue the pharmaceutical company and the product manufacturer (Dupont). They were told by the Government to take the slings off the market several times the year before she had it put in because the slings were being rejected by the body and women were getting very ill. The body thought of them as foreign bodies, like an organ transplant where the recipient has to take medication for the rest of their lives to prohibit rejection. They ignored the warnings and now there are advertisements on tv all the time to call some attorney if you had one and want to be part of the class action lawsuit.
Her vagina is deformed now, she doesn't enjoy sex anymore, she has a gang green "tag" in her blood stream and any time she gets an infection it turns to gang green easily, her stomach is distended, it just goes on. She had to have surgery, they cut her from sternum to pelvic bone, side to side and peeled her open to get all the gang green out so on top of the scars from the bladder stuff she now has extreme scars on her stomach.
Her husband was awarded $175,000 for not being able to have sex with his wife anymore, she was offered $2,000,000.00 but declined because she is diabetic and the gang green stuff is most likely going to be the cause of her death. Diabetics have a hard time healing from infections and with the gang green tag in her blood every time she gets a cold she ends up with pneumonia and gang green in her lungs. She had been in the hospital at least 3 times a year since having the sling put in and then removed.
Her attorney tells her the class action participants are getting millions and millions each and she should expect a large percent of what they are getting. The physicians malpractice insurance pays a great deal of the money so since she won't sue her doctor she will get some less. If she lives long enough she will be a wealthy woman some day.
