You go to your doctor for help and advice while trusting that any procedures performed are always in your best interest. Many women who were diagnosed with pelvic and bladder issues, were recommended by their physicians to have transvaginal mesh surgery. Recently, to protect women’s health, the FDA has ordered manufacturers to stop selling surgical mesh products due to the adverse effects that have been occurring after they were surgically implanted. Here’s what every woman needs to know.
