Following the extreme and constant pain caused by her pelvic mesh implant, Linda Batiste sued the product’s manufacturer, Ethicon, according to WFAA News. Batiste was one of thousands of women suing the makers of pelvic mesh, a device used to help with urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse, which the FDA warns has commonly resulted in serious complications. Batiste won her suit and was awarded $1.2 million. Now, she is joining a group of Texas women who are urging Attorney General Greg Abbott to investigate these companies under the premise that taxpayers are ultimately paying for the surgeries to remove faulty pelvic mesh implants. Texas is one of nine states where women are hoping for attorney general investigations.
