Doctors are accusing the media, lawyers, and even patients speaking out, of scaremongering. They think because of them, people are being scared away from surgeries for hernia, prolapse, and incontinence that are done with surgical mesh.

…the fact of the matter is that there are MANY mesh slings for SUI (Stress Urinary Incontinence) that ARE in litigation, because they are also causing major complications. Even some of the newest, smallest, SIMS (Single-incision Mini-slings) cause mesh complications too, and have lawsuits against them.

Still, I was LUCKY.
