 Setting off metal detectors and hardware removal?
Embonious    9:06am May 15 2019

Hi all,
Two questions:
Firstly, I'm flying for the first time since my injury in July. I'm curious if IM nails and screws set off detectors in the airports?
Secondly, rather optimistically I'm starting to think ahead to my hardware removal- I have an ORIF nail in the tibia and 5 screws. My doc said it's likely it will be removed once my bones are fully healed, hardened, and pristine, and I'm mostly curious if anyone has removal experience with an IM nail specifically, and what post-op and recovery looked like?
This probably won't be for another year and a half for me, but it's never to early to collect info :)

14 Sept 2018- hit by car, compound open tib/fib fracture, emergency surgery IM nail + 5 screws
19 Sept 2018- released from hospital, NWB
22 Oct 2018- allowed max 30% PWB
04 Dec 2018- working towards 100% WB indoors
18 Feb 2019- First steps!
