Question

Asked 536 days ago by a user from Eatonville, WA

What do I need to do to be a part of the class action lawsuit for mesh bladder slings?

In 2000 I had a bladder sling put in along with a rectocele and hysterectomy for bladder leakage. Woke up from that horrible surgery temporarily paralyzed in one leg drunk's palsey. Unable to pee, had to self cath untill my body healed from first surgery so I could have another surgery to cut the sling as it was to tight. Still had to self cath for awhile and take meds to relax bladder. When I finally started to pee again I was labeled a success as I no longer leaked. Now after 12 long years of pressure pain and running to the bathroom every hour to pee a little along with pain during intercourse. I go to a new doctor who says that is not normal and finds I am not able to empty my bladder. I am now self cathing after peeing and am shocked to find I NEVER am empty. My bladder sling is causing me pain and to not empty. I am now going to have a third surgery to cut the very same sling again. I want in on the class action lawsuit. How do I do that?

Hi,

The response you get here on LegalJet really depends on where you are and the issue you raise.

This is not my area of law, but you should probably contact the firm that is representing the law suit. I assume that this info should be easy to obtain. Often with these types of cases you become part of the class unless you opt out. IN your case you may want to consider all your options.

You may also want to consult your own medical malpractice/personal injury lawyer in your area before doing anything. But do not be afraid to get advice from several people before making a decision.

All the best,
Frank
