I've seen a lot of information on amalgam removal but nothing on the removal of orthopedic hardware. Does anyone have experience with this? I have had a titanium plate in my hip for 25 years and I have a lot of symptoms of metal toxicity. I can't have any sulfur or I get heart palpitations. I've tried taking curcumin a couple times and it was really bad. I felt like passing out and shook uncontrollably. I really want to remove to plate so I can detox but I know when you remove it, it releases a lot of metal ions into the body. Are there any precautions my surgeon can take? Or do you think it doesn't matter because titanium is supposed to be inert? I'm not sure if my symptoms are due to the titanium itself or because the titanium overload is preventing my body from detoxing more toxic metals.
