OK. Like my hat?
So I am in Dallas and finishing the metal allergy testing. It was very interesting. I got a shot every 10 minutes. I feel lucky, there were some people there that are allergic to many, many environmental things. Everyday things like the inside of the car and the bed they sleep in.
Unfortunately, I happen to have an allergic reaction to most of the metals that are used in the prosthesis. It looks like I will need a pure Titanium jaw. I am certain this will cost significant $$$$$.
Here is a picture of the my arm after day #1 of the testing. Looks like a very bad tatoo.
I am ready to head back home now and they can begin work on the prosthesis. This is progress.
