I know this isn't the right section but I'm looking for help. 15 years ago I was one of the first in CA to receive a disc implant. I won't go into all the details but it's been a nightmare. Pain was worse and my body was breaking down. Joint pain all over, muscle weakness, tired, can't do anything. I've undergone so many tests and doctors are stumped and cant find anything. My lymphocytes are acting up and have been from a couple years after surgery. I was told I must have a sinus infection. Yeah that's never gone away. So I started digging and found the implant was taken off the market. In the findings I found that people that had the implant removed. Also had wear and partials in the body. My doctor is leaning heavy on this being the cause of my issues for YEARS. What's worse is I've had MRIs but because of the implant they can never see whats going on. I just got a doctor that says he will give me three different xrays that will show if something is wrong with the implant. The rough part is, I can't find out how to get a particle test done. Now I know people with hip implants have the same materials so I thought I would try here. Thanks for any bit of help! I truly feel time is not on my side here.
