Every year, over 200,000 U.S. residents experience a bulging pain called a Hernia. This bulging pain is often caused when an organ, intestine, or fatty tissue pushes through a weak spot in the nearby muscle or tissue. Sometimes, the bulge caused by the Hernia can be visible from the outside.
The most common types of Hernias are found within the abdominal area. It’s likely for Hernias to become apparent in cases where an individual endures obesity, by lifting heavy projects, constipation or diarrhea, or even by persistent coughing and sneezing. According to the FDA, the most common types of Hernias are the following:
While the most effective way to recover from a Hernia may involve surgery, the only other option is to wait patiently. This is only recommended to the patient if Hernias aren’t as common to the individual, and if only approved by their doctor. The surgery option involves two methods:
While surgery may seem the most effective way of resolving Hernias, complications during the procedure happen more often than ever. Many of these implants or procedures often result in:
When repairing the affected Hernia area of the body, surgeons often use Hernia Mesh as an implant device. Some of these implants are made of mesh, while others are made of animal skin. The implants that are often used from animal skin are mainly collected from cows or pigs. Patients who have requested another, additional hernia procedure are often found filing lawsuits against the Hernia Mesh provider. Extreme un-comfort, pain, and reoccurrence of these Hernias are the main reasons for filing these lawsuits.
Many of these patients who need additional surgery have brought forth a lawsuit for the main reason being excessive and unwanted discomfort. Many attorneys who support these patient lawsuits argue these hernia mesh products were defectively designed, are causing additional, and unnecessary repairs and further injuries. Moreover, these such additional injuries would not have occurred if a substitute mesh implant product or proper sutures were utilized in the procedure.
Medical manufacturers of these devices are initially trusted to design products safe enough for those patients who are suffering. It’s almost inhumane how one may think their Hernia has been resolved, when in fact the problem was merely delayed, and reoccurred with additional pain.
