Do they rent them in the parks for the day? I'm concerned about being singled out by having to have the busses take time to load and unload me. Using them in the parks won't be bad, but not the whole loading, securing in and unloading me.. especially since I won't look like I need a chair.

If I do have to rent a scooter for a week to save money, will I have to have a handicapped room? Can regular rooms fit the scooters. I requested building 5, 3rd floor at Port Orleans French Quarter.

Do they have just regular wheelchairs without the electric scooter part? DH wouldn't mind pushing me around.

I don't have little kids. My children are high school and college aged.
I'd be surprised if Disney doesn't rent scooters, or at least wheelchairs, by the day at the park. (If you need a medical reason, HELLO! I'm sure having just had major surgery a few weeks earlier is a good enough reason.) My mom is elderly and walks with a cane, and last summer she traveled with me to visit family. We went to a zoo and a large aquarium, and both of them had wheelchairs available to rent. And Disney covers a LOT more ground.

I'd look into that, if I were you. That way you wouldn't need to hassle with it on shuttle buses but could just use it at the park to avoid lots and lots of walking.

Re: Hyster. 9/20, Disney 10/25. Will I be okay?

Thank you. I am going to check out the option of being able to just rent wheelchairs at the parks. I like not having to worry about dragging a big old wheelchair with me all the time. I think my body will thank me for renting one every day.

Now on to worrying about getting through this whole surgery thing.

Hi, know one can tell you how you will be after surgery but seems like a bad idea to go so soon after surgery, you will have hundreds of internal stitches and should do very little for a quite a long time, plus you do not know if there will be any complications during surgery or after surgery. I would post pone not worth risking your health at all. I am 14 days post and and still feel extremely tired and weak and I had a vaginal which is considered less invasive than abdominal. I would not go, is it really worth risking another surgery. Maybe if you have someone push you in a wheel chair, otherwise there is so much walking involved you will not have the energy to do that.

Re: Hyster. 9/20, Disney 10/25. Will I be okay?

It is not only the park, but the airline trip.
The doctor needs to know if you are taking a plane trip and how long is the flight.
Sometimes there are blood clots.
I may be wrong, so ask your doctor.
Tell him how long the flight is, that you are planning to rent a wheelchair, etc.

I hope that you can go, but be careful. Don't overdo.

Re: Hyster. 9/20, Disney 10/25. Will I be okay?

Everyone is different and I had a very easy recovery with no complications.

I had a LSH July 20th and went to our local county fair on Aug 20th. I was feeling really good. Parked right by the entrance and did a very little walk to see the animals and watched my daughter ride the rides. It was a very small fair, not a lot of people and I had been working 2 wks weeks prior to that.

It knocked me out. We were there about 6 hrs and I had to hold my belly and walk out slowly at the end. Ended up breaking open the pain meds that I hadn't needed for weeks. I spent the next day in bed and felt like it took me way back in progress.

Take care of yourself. Get a scooter or something to ride. But I agree. Disney is big and not relaxing. Take the vaca, but maybe kick it by a pool or in an A/C relaxing place and let your body heal. Those stitches and scars will just be setting and won't be stretchy at that point.

I've been bleeding every day since I had my unsuccessful ablation 5 months ago. My choices are go about a month after hysterectomy (which I now know is lvh) or go with constant heavy bleeding and cramps. Even medication the gyn gave me doesn't stop the bleeding at all. It's bizarre.

Everyone is different, however, I had an LSH and though my md cleared me in 4 weeks, too much walking knocked me out. The tiredness that you feel afterward is nothing like I've ever experienced before.

Good luck.

Re: Hyster. 9/20, Disney 10/25. Will I be okay?

Hi, I do not know what you mean by "the doctor cleared me in 4 weeks" but my doctor said minimum 8 weeks and I had a vaginal. He even told me I would have to be careful even after 8 weeks unless I wanted to risk having another surgery, he must know he has done many hysterectomies and is and experienced doctor who from what he has told me had to repair many people who did not listen to his advice. I know the trip is non refundable but it is only money and if you really want to go then postpone the surgery to a later date that way you can enjoy the trip and not worry that you are screwing up something inside.

You don't have to "prove" to Disney you need one. You can rent the motor ones or get a wheelchair.

Bonus is that takes you and your little ones to the front of most lines and front row for shows.

I had lavh last thurs and no way I could do Disney in 3 weeks. I have a lot of discomfort walking and my dr doesn't even want me working for two months

Sorry for typos I'm loopy lol

Re: Hyster. 9/20, Disney 10/25. Will I be okay?

quick answer, POSTPONE YOUR SURGERY if you cannot postpone trip, that way you will not be stressed about this. answer is simple to me. It does not cost you anything to postpone your surgery. why in the world would you go on a trip and risk your recovery this is MAJOR surgery is what my doctor said, with a MAJOR recovery, some people in here are 8 weeks post op and not doing well and the extreme fatigue seems to plague all of us, I walk to the mail box, less than half a block and have to go lie down after. Even just riding in the car and not walking tires me out.
