For those of you dealing with a possible nickel sensitivity:

I didn't know that stainless steel contained nickel. So, now it is a matter of finding ceramic, glass or cast iron. It is difficult getting nickel out of the body since it is a heavy metal. My chiro has me on something called NAC. My knees (which have been aching since both had TKR) are feeling a little better. We'll see how things progress.
Good Luck everyone.
