Cathy - You definitely need to contact an Indiana law firm well versed in medical malpractice, products liability and mass torts. Sooner the better.
Please note that I am licensed to practice in Indiana, North Carolina and Arizona. This communication does not establish an attorney client relationship until a contingency fee agreement is entered. Please contact an attorney of your choosing to answer your legal questions.
Hard to tell you without ascertaining make and manufacturer of mesh and review of medical records. Get local counsel involved ASAP as statute of limitations may have closed some options already.
There are many law firms advertising for the hernia mesh cases right now. Since you had this done in 2012 according to your description, it's important to contact somebody now.
