Has anyone had any type of experience with using a clean plastic retainer in their piercing throughout surgery? when I met with the anesthesiologist for my pre-admission testing, she claimed all my piercings would have to come out because of the steel (I have actually my nose, tongue, and also tragus pierced). I am not so worried around my nose or tongue piercings due to the fact that I have had them for fairly awhile, and also have had actually to take it them out for a few hours at a time before...but mine tragus is fairly new, plus it is cartilage, so it takes longer to totally heal. Ns dont understand if the would start closing up throughout the surgery. I did get a plastic retainer because that it, and also have that in now for my surgical treatment on Tuesday, but I dont know if castle will permit this...I guess ns will have to ask that morning.What was her experience?

I provided to scrub in the OR, so here are my thoughts.The factor they questioning you to take the end the piercings is since they room metal. They use a device during surgical treatment that could cause burns at any component of your skin that is in call with metal. I would think a plastic retainer have to be fine, but it would be a great idea to ask the anesthesiologist to it is in sure. You can probably just contact them and also not need to see lock again.Good luck!
