Background info: I was scheduled for LTKR on May 15, found out on May 12 that I'm allergic to several different types of metals. My OS at the time, said he didn't have an implant that would work for me, so I had to cancel surgery and find an new OS. I found a new OS, and my LTKR is on schedule again for July 17. My new OS said he still needs to do some research to make sure which replacement will work best for all my metal allergies. I'm glad we are moving forward, I think? To say that I'm nervous is an understatement! I'm scared to death!! I've been reading a lot on here about people's success stories, and it gives me hope that I will also have a successful outcome.
