I am about to undergo surgery after which I will end up with small titanium rods in my body. I wanted to ask if i would be able to continue working in my chosen field (which involves MBE (molecular beam epitaxy) and working with other devices with strong magnets). Wondering if I should switch my research field to a non-magnetic environment.

I have asked my doctor who says that it’s a big no for pacemakers, but it should be okay if i don’t spend too much time near those machines.

Wanted to ask if any one knows of cases, or has experienced anything like this?
