what are the side effects from titanium.

Hello I fractured my Lt clavical and several ribs in August of 2000 the fractures did not heal. I had surgery in December for the clavical and had a metal plate and 6 screws put in. The doctor said it would take away the pain I was having. I have had just as much pain if not more pain since the surgey. My family doctor took x-rays and said that she could not find any reason for the pain.

What if any are the side effects common with the use of metal plates. I do have several allergies so is it posible to be allergic to it?
Thanks Nancy Kilroy-Olah.

The Palumbo Patella Stabilizing Brace creates a dynamic, medially displacing force to the patella and allows functional activity while providing stability throughout the full range of knee motion.
