I'm trying to organise my thoughts and I have so many questions. My surgeon is the best and answers his emails even on the weekends but I don't want to abuse his kindness with the smaller questions. I know that the metal prosthetic joint for the jaw is similar to other joint replacements, so thought some of you might be able to please help me out.
1.) Will I be able to have MRI scans afterwards? Dr Google says yes but the scans may be fuzzy in the head area. I've had a sudden panic that one day, I'll need a detailed scan of my head and the prosthesis will cause issues. Irrational, I know. :roll:
2.) Will I beep when I go through metal detectors? How does it work at airports? Do you need a letter from a doctor?
3.) It is an important part of medical history in general? I mean, obviously I would mentioned it but does it change anything if you have a metal joint inside your body?
Thanks in advance and happy bank holiday weekend! xx
