Event Description

I had mesh for a pelvic hernia that had re-herniated after prior hernia surgery. Then in 2016 i had surgery again same pelvic area, same hernia. The mesh was attached to my bladder and colon. The surgeon tried to pick the mesh off my bladder, pierced my bladder had to stop and could not remove the mesh. He put more mesh close to my pelvic bone. I still have mesh on my bladder and colon. I have seen several doctors, some told me it needed removal, all of the doctors are afraid to mess with this problem, but all of them tell me how bad it will be if it gets worse. I am having very bad pain, it hurts me to walk very much. I contacted a lawyer and they said i needed more medical information. I don't know where to go with this, but i need some help. I have had 4 surgeries for this problem and i still have a hernia and mesh and colon problems. Surgeries - 2014 - 2016.
