However, the Plaintiff was not counselled in relation to the possible complications associated with the procedure and the fact that while the procedure may cure stress incontinence, it would not resolve her voiding difficulties and nocturia issues and could even exacerbate these symptoms.  The Plaintiff suffered severe groin pain as a result of the mesh implant causing her to undergo further surgery to remove the mesh implant months later. Unfortunately despite the revision surgery, the Plaintiff continues to suffer with pain and her incontinence is now much worse requiring her to wear pads daily.

The Plaintiff contacted Augustus Cullen Law who obtained expert opinion from a Consultant Gynaecologist specialising in Urogynaecology in the UK. He was of the opinion that groin pain is a recognised complication of mesh implants and that this occurs due to nerve trauma and it should have been discussed with the patient and documented on the consent form.  Furthermore he expressed the view that the client should have been advised that the procedure would not resolve all of her urinary issues and was of the opinion that surgical counselling and consent in relation to the Mesh implant surgery fell below an acceptable standard.

Following settlement negotiations with the Defendant the Plaintiff accepted the sum of €125,000 plus costs which was paid without an admission of liability.
