Unfortunately, you didn't offer enough information for me to find you a more definitive answer than "yes" and "it depends".  Yes, because there have been recalls of various implants, Goretex mesh included.  However, in order for you to determine if yours was involved, you'll need to search for your implant more specifically.  When I looked, there were recalls for vaginal & hernia mesh implants from several years back.  And apparently there have been recalls for Goretex used for chin implants.  Side effects depend upon what you had implanted where.  Common issues might include pain & infection.  Best to go back to the surgeon who did the surgery - at least after you've searched online.  The FDA keeps track of all recalls going back over a decade on their website.  Good luck!
