I too had an Anterior Cervical Discectomy with fusion, (level 1, C5 - C6) in October 2010 with a titanium plate and screws. I told the surgeon prior to the surgery that I was allergic to certain metals, he assured us I wouldn't be allergic to this. He did not run an allergy test. Within days after the surgery I had a rash at the surgical site and on my arms and it hasn't gone away. Also I have been diagnosed with neuropathy since. My life is about gone and I would like it back. If there is a support group would someone please post the web address, I have tried searching for one and have not come up with any yet. If there is a website with information regarding this, would someone post that website as well. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
