i experience a skin reaction to nickel. In 6 weeks i am having extensive orthopedic surgery that will require the use of stainless steel plates and screws. Has there been any research studies on whether the nickel in the stainless will affect the bone or any other internal tissue ? I am having an osteotomy on my right hip and femur and am concerned whether the nickel will react with the tissue at and around the joint.
Thank-you for considering my question
Melanie
