Surgical Problems: Nope. It would be highly unlikely to be allergic to the metal in clamps used during surgery. It is always better here to not pre-judge you diagnosis and to provide us with what your symptoms are specifically.

Possibly: Of course one can be allergic to anything. The clip itself is titanium, which is very non-allergenic with a silicone lining. The symptoms would be scar formation which could feel like pain in the pelvis. A laparoscopy could definitely confirm if an allergic reaction had occurred.
