Here's why I'm asking this question. My surgery is scheduled for 4 March 2014. My granddaughter lives in Nevada will be graduating from high school in early June. Going to the graduation has become a family event. Me, my parents, and one brother are flying to the event. Here's the "kicker" . . . I will be a couple months post op, my brother has already had a hip replacement, and mom has a heart defibrillator. Between the three, we could totally freak out other passengers with our spare parts going through security if we set of alarms. I'll call the airline beforehand, just wondered if anyone had any issues or experience with getting through airport security.
