I have surgical clips left in my neck from neck dissection and TORS surgery. I asked my surgeon about exercising (lifting weights) when I was several months post surgery and he said there are no issues with the clips being present.
Thanks I had a X-ray and saw they were there after my neck dissection- I was concerned because I was as scheduled for an MRI-
My wife had thyroid cancer years ago. Hers was removed. To this day surgical clips show up on X-Rays from that surgery. 25 years later.
I have surgical clips after modified neck dissection. They have never been a concern.
Yes I have pins in my neck after surgery
