Tweet Facebook Mail A large group of Australian women are taking on a major US medical company after suffering devastating side-effects from products used to support weak pelvic floor muscles, with the products still available in Australia.Prolapse occurs when the connecting muscle and tissue which supports the bladder, uterus and bowel are weakened, causing organs to drop. It affects one in four Australian women.Patricia Stiles first suffered the traumatic but common condition after the birth of her third child more than 30 years ago."Sometimes I'm in so much pain my legs swell, my hands swell, I can't even get out of bed with the pain," she said.Ms Stiles' prolapse was allegedly made worse by the very thing that was meant to fix it, a mesh product used to help lift the organs back in place.She is now one of hundreds of Australians preparing to sue medical manufacturer American Medical Systems (AMS).It is claimed the mesh - made of plastic called polypropylene - can perforate organs and erode tissue, causing severe pain, bleeding and infection.RelatedNew high-tech living transforming the lives of retireesJack the dinosaur makes a move to new homePush to rename Yarra River to correct 19th Century mistranslationTwo warnings were issued by the Food and Drugs Administration in the United States in 2008 and 2011.However the 64-year-old grandmother said she was never told there was any risk of using the mesh product.A class action in the US has seen 30,000 claims settled, with the company paying out almost US$1 billion.Australian legal firm Shine Lawyers has been working on more than 100 claims.AMS told 9NEWS it cannot comment on the Australian cases while there is ongoing litigation.
