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.
