Airport security - not bad at all!
I had my first set of airplane flights post-pacemaker this weekend. I'd read all of the posts on here about the good and the bad things that everyone has experienced when going through security. For what it's worth, mine went completely fine - the staff at both airports were very nice, polite and above all, extremely respectful. If I'm going to be groped in public, I can't imagine it gets much better than that.
The funny part of the story was when I approached the security agent at my departure airport. I was nervous, and I tried to approach the woman in a polite and friendly fashion to ask for a pat-down, while also brandishing all of my travel documents and pacemaker ID cards in as non-threatening a way as I could manage. The lady glanced down at the card, glanced up at me, and said "Oh honey, I don't need to see the card, it's not like people ever WANT to be patted down!" (Ain't that the truth!)
I wish such smooth sailing on all of my fellow traveling pacers!
