I had a BS neurostimulator implanted 2011,removed in 2014 due
to horrible,mutiple health issues that began after implant.I ha
ve been dxd with multiple autoimmune ds,heavy metal poisoning. I
've had chemo drugs, immunosuppressant drugs, now starting chela
tion therapy. Plans for stem cell transplant in near future. BS
will not turn over materials list of metals that battery was mad
e of. They are not being helpful at all. If anyone has a class a
ction suit against Boston Scientific re their neurostimulators,p
lease email me. Thank you
