>> it seemed easy. >> reporter: surgical mesh was introduced in the 50s to fix hernias via abdominal surgery. in 2002 the fda approved mesh in repair of pelvic prolapse where a bladder or uterus is moved out of place. the repair doesn't require surgery because doctors go through vagina. it became popular to fix incontinence, too. that's why these women had it put in. >> it was simple. it was quick. winter into the hospital the next day ways home and back up on my feet. >> reporter: the women say the first year it led to chronic pain and infections. >> it's a nightmare. i had it put in in 2012. since then i've had 5 to 6 utis a year. >> i literally sat in the bathtub all night long sometimes because it's so painful. >> scale of 1 to 10 what was the pain? >> it was like close to a 10. >> reporter: rita said she

6:36 pm
from the market. at this call center in danville, dispatchers take calls from women around the clock to explain their legal and medical options. >> if this was a bunch of men who couldn't use -- hundreds of thousands of men who couldn't use their reproductive organs there would be more noise about it. >> reporter: this woman runs the marketing company that connects women with attorneys who are now taking on the mesh makers. >> this mesh that i understand you can buy for $25 and they're selling them for about 800 to 3,000. it's so lucrative. what's a vagina worth? what's a woman worth? >> reporter: she estimates nearly 2 million women have been implakted with mesh and it's still on the market. now women are turning to surgeons like this doctor who's performed more than 1,000 mesh removal surgeries since 1994 and says he's seen a rapid increase in patients in the last five years some who have traveled as far as australia for the
6:37 pm
surgery. >> the darkest chapter gynecology surgery. the doctors have lost the trust of their patients. and we have to regain that trust. >> reporter: he urges women to seek treatment if they're suffering. >> i don't want them to live in a hopelessness. >> reporter: bay area surgeon dr. tom margolis testified before the fda in 2011, urging the agency to take firm action, saying mesh quote produces an unacceptably high and clearly avoidable plethora of life-ruining complications in women. there are numerous safer surgical alternatives with superior success rates". the fda has issued two safety warnings about transvaginal mesh since 2008. last month they ordered the devices reclassified from moderate risk class 2 to a high risk class 3 device. maker whose want to use the mesh for prolapse have 30 months to submit new data showing the product is safe and effective. but women say the fda warnings and actions are simply not
6:38 pm
enough. these two women are now suing the makers of their devices. >> we can't trust them anymore. >> what do you think the fda should do? >> stop putting it on the market. get rid of it. >> reporter: some 100,000 women are now part of dozens of lawsuits against the mesh makers. under the fda's current rules. the mesh will remain on the market until 2019 listed as a high risk medical device. the biggest public health message from the doctors, women need to understand the complications associated with mesh before they vet put in. back to you. thank you very much, vickie. if you have a tip for vickie or anyone in the investigative unit give us a call at 1-888-996-tips or send us an e-mail to the area at nbcbayarea.com. two elderly women being evicted from their burlingame home are taking legal action. hear what their lawyers have to say about the case tonight. the cyber attack that may put u.c. berkeley students at risk. and now 250 employees at
