We were instructed to pursue a claim for unnecessary urogynaecology surgery by a client who was wrongly advised that she needed an operation for mild stress incontinence when conservative treatment would have been successful.
This surgery caused significant bladder problems and our client was again told incorrectly to have further surgeries, including the insertion of mesh, which eventually had to be removed. In total she underwent five major surgical procedures, all of which were unnecessary. She was left with severe ongoing bladder and bowel problems, as well as an inability to have sexual intercourse due to the scarring and pain in her vagina.
The defendant made a full admission and proceeded to settle the case for £185,000
