Thanks for the advice.
You should've gotten an MRI card showing info about your prostethisis. Now a days they are safe for MRI, and most titanium rods are clamp on real tight too. the one I have he told me is some some sort of self sealing clamp and it doesnt' move at all. Mine is titanium too. I never had an MRI though, but I have a card about it just in case. Just ask your doctor about it and see what he says about the MRI.
