I have found articles about allergies to metal implants. I have asked a doctor about it but he said that the metal used in operations are non-allergic. I have metal clips in my body due to laparoscopic operation and I don't feel well since I have had the operation. I have constant pain there, even the skin is much warmer than in other places. Has anybody heard about this allergy? How can it be proved?
