One thing I forget to mention in my previous updates about the recovery process of having an intramedullary nail (IM Nail) in my lower left leg was my first experience of going through airport security.
About a month ago I went to Spain on a stag do and I was quite intrigued and anticipating when I got to London Gatwick airport to see what would happen when I went through the metal detector. As I stepped through I was waiting for the alarm/beep, but it never came.
I was actually disappointed and wanted the alarm to go off as it would be like a vindication for the pain and having all that metal in my leg.
So, no, an IM Nail does not set off metal detectors at the airport.
