Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

There isn't anything in particular that you need to do as the scanner will pick up on any metal objects and will show that they are in your leg. If you fly regularly, the TSA has a pre-check membership that you can get that allows you to get through the airport much quicker without removing shoes, belts, etc. before going through the scanners.

.

I might also consider getting a letter from your doctor if you are able to that states you have the metal in your leg..

thanks

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
