What complications are associated with transvaginal mesh?

If you are a Louisiana woman who has undergone surgery to correct pelvic organ prolapse, it is possible that your surgeon implanted transvaginal mesh into your body to help suspend some of your tissues.

It could help to research what is in your beauty products

There are countless health and cosmetic products on the market today. You may have at least a dozen in your home. As our team at Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South, LLP, knows, just because something is made for your skin does not mean it is necessarily safe. Like you would look at the ingredients in your food, it may be smart for you and other Louisiana residents to be informed of what goes into your health products.

Baby powder: to use it or not is an ongoing debate for U.S. women

Johnson & Johnson's baby powder has been popular in Louisiana and across the U.S. for a number of years, but female users may be especially interested in recent civil litigation surrounding the product.

Unfortunately, there are numerous products available in Louisiana, as well as across the country, that have been improperly tested or contain ingredients of unknown origin and can cause harm to multiple people.
