A: A lawyer can't give medical opinions. You need to follow up with the surgeon and/or your internists. You may have a case if the mesh is the problem. First find out what your problem is. Generally statute of limitations is one year if surgery in Tennessee. As to the case against the manufacturer. Contact a member of the Tennessee Assn for Justice who handles medical products cases.
