A few years ago I got a surgery for a concave chest, basically my chest collapsed inward and I wanted to get it fixed so they placed a metal bar in my chest to push it outwards. What I had was called pectus excavatum.
Now that I think back to it, it seems that all my symptoms had come since I got that surgery. I think it may link back to the fact that it gave me heavy metal poisioning? Now I feel like Im stuck with candida and leaky gut because of this. Is this possible?
The metals used in surgical procedures like this are inert. So they are not going to cause heavy metal poisoning.
On the other hand when a person has a surgery like this they are going to be given a lot of IV antibiotics, which can cause Candida overgrowth.
