You might want to prepare a detailed timeline of your care and treatment and the reasons you feel that you have been the victim of malpractice. You can then contact a number of different lawyers in your area to discuss whether or not someone would be willing to meet with you to discuss your potential case.
Such cases can be complex. Mr. Hastings advice is on point. Gather your medical records and create a detailed timeline for the events related to this matter and have it all ready for review by local qualified counsel. The first issue to sort out here will be whether your complications are the consequence of physician negligence or whether the mesh itself was defective and responsible for your injuries OR whether your complications while terrible, were foreseeable complications of the surgery that you underwent. Best of luck.

Medical malpractice cases are nearly non existent in Wisconsin. I wrote a blog about this very topic at our law firm's web site under personal injury law topics. The milwaukee Journal - Sentinel did an article about it as well. The statute of limitations in WI is 3 years to sue for malpractice; if you feel strongly that you were harmed, gather up all of your medical records and have them reviewed by a malpractice lawyer.
It certainly sounds like you have suffered severe damages but the issue will be whether you can connect it to malpractice. Because of the statute of limitations you should contact a medical malpractice attorney immediately.
