@RunA42K, I looked into that clinical trail and when they told me it involved injecting Capsaicin (chili peppers) into the knee, I thought twice about it! Let me know if you get in and if it works. I might reconsider it for my other knee.I woke up today to 3 emails about the clinical trial. No news yet, just that they received my information and I’d be getting a call. I will so sure left you know what I find out when the time comes.
Isn’t that the truth @Mrty2019 - It should be a standard question but I was never asked that question and the words metaL allergy was something that never would have entered my mind. That fact that it is not covered by insurance is ridiculous because insurance companies don’t cover the test for $600 but they paid for me to have one TKR and two Total Revisions!feel like I may have dodged a bullet with everything you have gone thru. I think that should be a standard question by OS regarding nickel allergies.
