Has anyone had a lawsuit against Dr. who placed a nickel coronary stent?

I had coronary stents implanted which I later found out contain nickel. I wore a bracelet informing about my allergy. Since the placement I experience chest pains I never had before the procedure.

That indeed sounds like negligence.  It is a little hard to actually win a malpractice case and you'd need a good lawyer.  The doctor would be represented by his insurance company's lawyer.
Have you had the stent removed or talk to the doctor about this?
