I'm going to be flying for the first time post-surgery in August, and we're just wondering if the rods set off the security systems. Do I need to carry anything to show the TSA people what kind of hardware I have?

I have flown many times since my spinal fusion, and I've never set off the security systems. If they question you, just show them your scar. : ) I've never had any problems with it, so I hope it goes well!

Paula,
Check out the airport security thread started in February. I even walked right through the x-ray machine a couple of weeks ago and they didn't stop me. I would love to know what they were thinking when they say all my hardware. My guess is that they have seen it before and know it is nothing to be concerned over.
