    Transvaginal Mesh and Breast Cancer

    Hi again. I have a transvaginal mesh implanted in 2009. I have been miserable for a couple of years but didn't know it was the mesh causing the problem until about a month ago. In trying to find solutions to the mesh, I was at a new gynecologist who did a mammogram and found I now have breast cancer and have to have a mastectomy on Feb. 27. I have read articles on the web about this but am wondering if there are any others on here with this besides me?

      The transvaginal mesh people (manufacturers, whatever) are being sued big time because of the medical problems it has caused. Be sure you talk to a lawyer you know personally so he can refer you to a one of the many lawyers who are suing those people. I have heart valve damage because of the phen-phen I took when it hit the market and was so popular. It worked, but at the cost of my heart. I was working for a group of attorneys at the time I heard about the lawsuit and was referred to one near where I live in Seattle. Two years later I had a boat load of money, but what good was it when you know your heart is damaged and one day you are going to pay. Anyway, bought myself something I have never had in my life and that was a brand new car. Still have it too. So it is worth checking into on the lawsuit against the mesh people.
