    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I just had surgery having the Medtronic Interstim Therapy for bowel control. I was wondering if going in places like Walmart will be a problem? Will I set off any alarms?

    NO...the alarms that go off is not because the detection of metal, its because of a detection of a sensor that they place in their products and clothing. It will set off metal detectors like airports and security buildings.
