Need Help

5 years ago my surgeon used 60-70 Ti/Al Vanadium clips on my sygmoidal colon and 3 or 4 larger clips on my appendix area. Since then I can’t sleep too good. The appendix area is always swollen. The sygmoidal area is burning lately. 2 years ago I started experiencing dryness/stiffness (the feeling of a stick inserted behind my ribcage going down towards my appendix area). I lost 6 good teeth due to extra metals in dental materials (lots of infections). A Dec 2014 tooth extraction gave me numbing in the chin area. In the last 4 months, numbing has been INTENSIFYING and SPREADING (chin, lips, ear, left temple, and going down my throat... very uncomfortable and scary). I did a blood test on metal allergies. Ti 3.2 (2-4 is mildly reactive). Al 1.4, Vanadium 1.0. My blood pressure is higher than usual, 140/75, it used to be 120/70. An OHSU Oregon surgeon thinks the allergy is not significant enough to go for appendix clips removal. COULD ANYBODY PLEASE HELP? Is there anyone who knows a surgeon that could help me? (I had all tests done; thyroid, CT scan, colonoscopy, CEA, they’re all good. My diet is outstanding.)
