i think the cardiologist left in a peice of copper wire in my heart, when pulling out the pacemaker lead. After he pulled it out i saw that there wasnt any wire below the coil, then after looking at my own films, i see a matalic object in my chect, am i crazy, please check out my blog for a x-ray and tell me if i am right. systoms include cant think straight, sore from the pecks to neck, constent abdominal pains, open sores on my back ever sence by pass. i just demanded a blood work up, to included copper test. thyis all started frrom using vioxx, witch the state of montana is denying all conections with.

thanks hope all well in your lifes, just dont get sick in montana.

  • Could you give me a link to your films? It is possible that a piece of copper wire was left in you. While this isn't immediately dangerous, it should be corrected if that is what is wrong.

  • Yes, I can see that there is definately something abnormal on your x-ray. You do need to go back to the doctor. It looks like they could have left something in there, possibly a copper wire. However, this shouldn't cause such pain, unless it dislodged from its original place and migrated to another location in the chest, which is possible. It's hard to really tell what it is when the x-ray is so small. I tried enlarging it, but it was quite fuzzy. You really do need to find a cardiologist or at least another doctor. If they did leave something in there, this would constitute malpractice. I wish you the best. If it is a copper wire that was left in your chest, it will take a while for the body to absorb toxic amounts of copper to be detectable in your blood. But, you do need this taken care of ASAP to avoid any risks associated with copper poisoning or foreign object migration.
