    Vaginal Mesh: New FDA Warnings

    Byroney_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Nurse Jane gives you the full story on Vaginal Mesh and the warnings."As a healthcare provider one really knows that a serious concern has arisen when it makes the evening news. But in my book, nothing tops the alarm bells that go off when a medical product suddenly appears on the TV screen at my gym followed by the phone number of an out of state legal firm soliciting for clients. This just happened when I was on the cross trainer last week so it seemed important to share the most accurate information I could find about the newest FDA warnings for vaginal mesh."

    Have you had mesh used for a vaginal repair? Has it been problem-free or have you experienced any issues?
