“9 years of suffering" says victim of Boston Scientific Implant as new mesh class action is filed in Australia

Deborah Stanford is one of many women who have received a Boston Scientific implant and suffered complications. She has joined Shine Lawyers’ class action, which was filed today in the Australian Federal Court, to hold the manufacturers to account for the continuous pain she has endured since the Obtryx sling was implanted on 12 September 2012.

Ms Stanford’s bladder was sitting in the birth canal and the sling was placed, on medical advice, to reposition her bladder.

“It has been 9 years of suffering."

“If I knew how hard this was going to be, I never would have gone through it,” said Ms. Stanford.

Boston Scientific is the third pelvic mesh manufacturer to face a class action over their range of prolapse mesh and incontinence sling implants. Shine Lawyers has filed all three actions against Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon and American Medical Systems (AMS).
