Will I receive any sort of card from Medtronic or my Dr to show to TSA when I travel? I forgot to ask the Medtronic rep when I met with him the other day.

    I forgot to ask my rep today as well, but from the literature I got with my stim it said a permanent card will be sent about 4-6 weeks after surgery.
  • I've never had to show mine in two years of travel. Even once with TSA precheck he looked at the card and said unless it goes off in the scan, don't bother mentioning it. They'll hand scan anyway if so. Rep said turn it off before scanning but I just go about life as usual and it has been uneventful. One time only did it turn off by itself in the process.
  • I didn't think TSA would make a big stink over it, but figured I'd ask on here. Thanks for replying. :)
