Charleston, W.Va. — A jury here awarded $2 million on Thursday to a plaintiff who claimed a transvaginal mesh device permanently injured her, causing constant pain and requiring several surgeries to remove. The four men and four women deliberated about 12 hours before reaching a unanimous decision in the first mesh trial in federal court.

“I feel this trial represented me and all the other ladies affected by this product,” Donna Cisson told Drugwatch in an exclusive interview after the verdict. “I hope this trial set a precedent for all the other women who have this product in their bodies…Please continue to pray for me and all the other ladies who have been affected.”

The verdict comes a year after a jury in California found in favor of Christine Scott and ordered Bard to pay $3.6 million.
