The screws are titanium and are not magnetic. I had 2 rods & 4 screws put in my back in 2011. The metal has to be non-magnetic, surgical-grade titanium so it doesn't rust, wear down or poison the body. I can only imagine that it's painful having the kids try to put magnets near s surgery site. Explain that the magnets may work, but that they could hurt you if the screws are shifted by the magnets. Happy healing, OP.
I wouldn't want the kids anywhere near my surgery site if I were you. Kids tend to have problems remembering to be gentle. I'd tell them they can try the magnets after mommy's had time to heal properly and to be super careful and gentle around mommy because she has a really big owwie, & then continue to remind them of that. My brother had to have minor surgery on his lower back and has 3 kids ages 2, 4, & 5 and they had to constantly remind them of his "owwie" because if not, the little ones tend to run and jump to sit & cuddle with daddy, excited that he was home all week and on the couch. Hope you heal well and quickly and that the kids & your husband are able to give you some time and space to heal properly.
Tell them that this only step one to you getting your Adamantium skeleton and becoming Wolverine.
To bad about the back surgery and why it lead to that. But it's quite awesome that you now can have magnets attached to you, and that you can play with your kids in that way. Especially when you probably can't play with them in much other ways right now.
