Some four years ago I had a tumor (GEST) removed from my stomach successfully. Ever since then I had severe diarrhea on and off similar to colon prep. Titanium staples were used to close the stomach lining. I have issue with gold and silver. My wedding band has to be removed every night since it reacts with my skin if left on too long. The question is: is it possible to have such a reaction with the titanium staples to cause such a reaction? Several hours before I get diarrhea, I have a Sulfur taste with burps from my stomach.
