paiient was unable to tell doctor that she had a stimulator
Well, yes actually. It's a common diagnostic tool and x-rays don't affect metal so it's not an issue. An MRI would be a totally different story and if the patient were not conscious they would perform a full body CT to determine if metal is present before they would put you in an MRI which is effectively a giant microwave guided by intensely powerful magnetic fields (up to 3 Teslas).
