Woman files lawsuit after having gallbladder removed

Posted on September 10th, 2012 No Comments

Bayer has one more Yaz lawsuit on its hands after a California woman had to under go a cholecystectomy, or a procedure to remove her gallbladder, after she developed gallbladder disease while Yaz.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County and accuses Bayer of product liability, negligence, negligent misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, and breach of implied and express warranties. Gallbladder disease can be extremely painful and its removal can require lifelong medical care.

The disease has been linked to Yaz and Yasmin because they contain drospirenone, an artificial compound that mimics a natural hormone. Drospirenone can increase women’s risk of gallbladder complications.

Gallbladder complications: Gallstones

Posted on May 26th, 2011 No Comments

Gallbladder complications can lead to chronic pain and difficulty digesting because the function of a gallbladder is to store bile and help with the digestion process.

If the gallbladder becomes diseased gallstones can develop. Gallstones are hard deposits that can be the size of a grain or as large as a golf ball. There are two types of gallstones, the most common type is ones that are caused by cholesterol. The other type are stones that are made from too much bilirubin in the Bile.

This type of stones are called pigment stones. Causes of gallstones include failure for your gallbladder to empty the bile properly, rapid weight loss, and diabetes. Recently, gallbladder complications and gallstones have been linked to the use of certain birth control pills, such as Yaz and Yasmin.

Yasmin birth control's connection to gallbladder disease

Posted on November 2nd, 2010 No Comments

Over 4,200 lawsuits have been filed against Bayer pharmaceuticals after women have claimed that they have suffered serious side effects after taking Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella birth control. One serious side effect that has a correlation with the drug is gallbladder disease.

Although it has been noted that there may be a correlation between the medicine and the gallbladder disease, the exact reason why it causes it is unknown. Nearly 43 percent of the claims against the company are alleging gallbladder disease after taking the pill.

Some have suggested that the hormones in the pill may increase the levels of cholesterol in bile and decrease the movement in the gallbladder which creates gallstones. It is unknown at this time how the court will process these cases.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious side effect, contact the Yasmin gallbladder complications lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 to discuss your legal options.
