Just came back from an airline trip to Memphis from Columbus, Ohio. I was wearing my Pump and my Cgms. I had just talked to the MM folks by Phone, and they DID NOT suggest wearing the CGM through the full body scanners. I had just paid out of pocket for a new transmitter ( new deductibles with my retired level insurance); and I truly didn't want to crash it. I asked for the pat down in lieu of the full-body scan. I told them before I went through that I would not be going through the scanner and why. The TSA agents assured me that they knew it would not hurt the Pump, but they,of course, had never heard of nor seen a CGM.
I assumed the '"I believe I can fly" condor position with arms outstretched and feet apart; while the very nice female TSA officer patted me down ,for both the departure and the return flights. I am not at all shy, nor tactiley defensive, so it did not bother me..But some people may not like the lack of privacy. It used to be done in a little covered shelter away from the general screening area, but now it has to be done in public, in full view. But is just not that awful to me.. In guess I kind of like an audience, anyway,(lol)., However, the rest of the passengers did not look; They were too busy trying to get their own belongings and go to their intended gate.
I will always ask for a pat down and will never do a Scanner. No desire for even a chance of damage to my "Bionic woman" gadgets, as they are quite pricey...
