Hello;

i have a plastic allergy and I am allergic to absorbable sutures. How do I counter the effect once they begin to absorb into my system? Typically, I have severe bone and msucle pain. I can almost feel it traveling through my blood system.

Always let them know before surgery, you should have it listed on all of your medical records and they do have a bracelet that you can buy and put on there that you are allergic to that.
Sincerely,

Speaking of sutures, I still have one in my finger, had it for 6 months and it never bothered me.. Until now. It really hurts in that spot and I don't know why.

Any input?

I am allergic to every thing put in me. It goes with my many auto-immune diseases I have! I've had doctors who have had to just sit on appendicitis because I would die if they went in and I might die if they did not and it blew. I'm still here--thank GOD!
