Because enquiring minds want to know: seven stainless steel screws, some the size of ball point pens, do not set off the airport security machine when they are inside of your pelvic bones. At least they did not do so today at Portland International. Yes, I was ready to bare it all and show them my scar if necessary!

Ha-ha...I found that out too, screws don't set off the TSA. I will admit one really bad thing...I used my cane for a long time, just to avoid lines. That was bad. :)

7 screws?!? Wow! I had 3.
