Has anybody else ever had an eye try to reject the implanted tantalum rings, as 'foreign bodies,' months after proton beam treatment?  Mine are now barely covered by the sclera, visible like blue ink polka dots on my eye-ball, and irritating to the inside of my upper eyelid.  I don't know yet what, if anything, the surgeon will suggest should be done about it, and I am wondering if it is a common occurence.  Any comments would be welcome.
