I had a question regarding sutures used during a surgery.
Recently, Panacryl Sutures were recalled due to the alarming number of people who had infections, sutures not absorbing as should and other complications.
What is so special about Panacryl Sutures that got them recalled? Vicryl Sutures (also made by manufacturer of Panacryl) cause infections and sometimes don't absorb either but yet are still on shelves. There are more FDA adverse reaction reports on Vicryl Sutures then there are on Panacryl.
I had experienced all the same side effects as if I did have Panacryl sutures. I had infections weekly for years, suture spitting and even the wound opening. I 100% with out a doubt thought for sure I had Panacryl sutures but it was not the case, I had Vicryl. How come only Panacryl suture victims can file lawsuits against the manufacturer? I went through years of pain, years of antibiotics and tests. Finally, a surgery to remove the undissolved Vicryl sutures.
