Post-op Rash: Depending if the rash is local to the colon surgery site or more generalized around her body would mean different things. Also radiation and chemotherapies also produce long term rash formations. Long standing, chronic, recurring or changing rashes (color, size and pain are examples of changes) should probably be biopsied for a more definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

This : This is a very rare allergy and your question is impossible to answer. There is no reporting system in place to document suspected or real cases of titanium allergy, therefore there is no way to know how many people are allergic to titanium. If you feel you are allergic to titanium there is a test called the melisa test. Your doctor should be able to find out where you can obtain such testing. Good luck. ...Read more

Something else?: If the rash improved without treatment only to return a few days after (your dates were not defined), then the problem may be from something other than the drug implicated. If the rash was treated and returned after the treatment was stopped, then the rash (if due to the drug) may last for 2-3 weeks. ...Read more
