Will I be able to use my electric blanket with all the metal in my body?

My DH is concerned about this issue.

Thanks

I think it should be just fine. Just be careful of temperature since you will have lots of numbness. I think I somehow did this to my back with my old heating pad the other day. Since there is still numbness I didn't realize it was too hot and somehow I now have a Harry Potter red lightning bolt on my back. Quite interesting. Janet

I LOVE, love, love my heating pad. Get the kind that automatically shuts off (though I don't always trust it...but so far so good).

so do you think I should get a heated mattress pad or an electric blanket?

My husband got me a heated mattress pad right after I came home from the hospital and I love it. I like it much better than the electric blanket that we had before because I don't need as many blankets to stay warm. After a lot of my numbness went away, I did begin to feel the wires in the pad, but since I got myself a 2 1/2 inch memory foam topper, I don't feel the wires anymore.

I have slept with an electric blanket all my adult life. No problem.
