Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
Side Effects of Treatment for SUI
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) refers to involuntary urination that occurs during physical activity such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercise or other physical activity. When muscles governing the urination process are weakened, they are unable to prevent urine flow when increased pressure occurs due to certain physical activities. SUI can often follow multiple pregnancies or pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The specific treatment recommended can depend on the severity of the symptoms and suitability to each individual but fall into four main categories. These are behavioral changes (diet, smoking, caffeine, weight range), pelvic floor muscle training, medication and surgery.
Besides surgery, treatment usually only improves symptoms rather than curing the condition. Surgery, however, should only be used on patients who have been carefully screened to be likely to benefit from the procedure. In the case of transvaginal mesh, often used to treat SUI,
FDA warnings include the statement that the potential benefits did not outweigh the risk of serious injury and other
types of complications. Depending on the specific damage you have suffered, a
New York City transvaginal mesh lawyer can help you pursue a medical malpractice or
product liability claim and fight for the compensation you deserve.
