Blonde question!!!!!!!!!

Hubby and I are off to Sharm on 7th March and a thought has just occured to me, scary I know!!!

Hubby had his ankle pinned and plated last year after breaking it, will this cause a problem when he goes through security at the airport, you know that bit you have to walk through after passport control?? He always set it off before his op so am hoping it wont matter too much lol!!!!

Thanks

Hi

I have a 4 or 5" plate with 12 screws on the outside of my leg just above the ankle with another 4 screws on the other side from an accident 15 years ago .

You certainly don't need a doctors note to travel and i have never informed security of my hidden hardware concealed in my leg and i have travelled a lot in recent years .

I must admit though the alarm does go off quite a lot but all they do is frisk search me then send me on my way .

Wouldn't give it a second thought if i were you ...... enjoy your holiday .

Oh ..... please no jokes about having a screw loose !
