In some cases, when things have gone wrong, hernia mesh pain can be substantial, permanent and completely life-altering.
Mesh implants remain at the centre of controversy, and as a result of growing numbers of patients suffering with pain and problems from hernia mesh surgery, we’re now acting for a number of people who are claiming personal injury compensation.
In some cases, making a claim can be the only way of obtaining some form of justice for what has happened. Importantly, claims can sometimes include private surgery and treatment options as well.
The extent of the hernia mesh pain problem
The severity and extent that hernia mesh pain can reach simply cannot be understated. In some cases, patients have been left with agonising pain that has completely turned lives upside down. Careers and livelihoods can be ruined, and it can be impossible in some cases to do anything about the complications.
Hernias have relapsed, and organs have pushed and grown around the very mesh that’s supposed to stop that from happening. This can cause substantial pain which can be worsened when nerves are exposed as well.
When things have gone wrong, some victims of this procedure have been left in a far worse off position than they were in prior to have the procedure in the first place.
What can be done?
In some cases, there may not be a great deal that can be done about long-term hernia mesh pain that’s caused by difficult complications.
Where treatment and surgery can take place, this can form as part of a claim for compensation in some cases. It usually depends on the stage of the case and whether the opponent is accepting liability for what’s happened. In some cases, we can obtain funding for private surgery and treatment either before a case has settled or as part of a settlement package.
Either way, it’s always an option that should be explored; especially if it’s going to help you!
