    I found out today that I'm getting my tonsils out, and the doctor (who also will be the surgeon) said that I need to take the tongue stud out for the surgery. I asked if I could use a plastic stud instead of a metal one and he said he thinks it would be fine...

    Apparently it causes some complications with the cauterizing of the wound.. or something..

    Anyone else go through this? What did you do?

    Also, where is a good site to get a quality plastic stud?

    You can get a retainer but they only get held on with a little o-ring. In other words it won't stay in your tongue.

    bio-plast is a surgical quality plastic that is maluable. It can be threaded so end pieces can screw on. Then you can get plastic small ball ends, removing all metal in your mouth for your minor operation.

    the metal has to be removed because the tool they use to cauterize tissue works through any metal object, i.e. if the cautery tool touches the metal barbell, it will cauterize all the tissue touching the barbell.

    but if the metal touches plastic, nothing will happen?

    I grabbed a cheap plastic stud at the mall a week ago... its been okay, not acting up or anything.. (i thought it would, since everything seems to)... maybe just some cheap shit like this will be okay?

    na, it has to be conductive for it to work, it uses electricity to generate heat
