Allergy to nickel does anyone know what stents are made of?

Hi everyone,

It has just dawned on me that I may have a problem. I am going to Poland in June and I hope that I can have the procedure whilst there. I would prefer stents if needed but I may have a problem with that as I am allergic to nickel.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks

Just had a message from Poland to say that the stents are made from Cobalt. Now I am on a mission to find out if these are OK for me :)
