Odd question

Rate this Entry
So last night my husband & I went to dinner at pies & pints. I got a half pint of cider & it was carbonated so I sipped it slowly. I mentioned to my husband that I was worried about damaging my sleeve. He said you're fully healed by now! My surgery was on 9/23/13. I said that I hoped so but I still worried. When I did jury duty last month I didn't set off the metal detectors. So here's the question- what happened to my staples that sealed my sleeve? Do they dissolve over time or does the tissue heal over top of them? Told you it was an odd question!

    Think about all the people who has hip and knee replacements they don't set off any alarms
    When they go to stores and airport even though they have hardware in them right

    Your stomach heals around them, making our pouches even stronger than they were before surgery. The staples are titanium and do not set off metal detectors.
