Stapedectomy and MRI

I also seem to be getting the run around regarding the safety of an MRI on my ear, which has the wire stapes prosthesis. My concern is the wire. The surgery was done in the 1970's when this operation was quite new. The results were amazing, but all these years later, I may have developed a problem. Anyway, I cannot get a commitment regarding the type of wire used so I am concerned that an MRI might not be safe. Anyone else had a similar experience recently?
