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

I had surgery in April and still wouldn't be able for a trip to Disney. I still find doing a full shop in the supermarket hard work and that's not as much walking as in Disney - still I suppose everyone is different. I certainly wouldn't have been able to go and enjoy myself, I'd have felt I was spoiling the holiday for the others. As it was I went on a beach hol in July and spent most of the time reading books while they did more active things I just wasnt' up to it. This is from someone who has 5 kids and is usually always active so be careful you don't want to end up with adhesions or other complications

I think you could do it, if you wanted to, and a wheelchair or motorized scooter would be the way to go. I recommend you call or visit their web site and check into this, and also get accommodations at the airport. Anywhere you have a long walk, get a ride instead. Anywhere you have to carry something the least bit heavy, get help instead. If you can do it that way, it could be enjoyable, although I can see how being far from a hotel room might be less than desirable.

To share my experience, I went to a concert last week, just shy of 6 weeks post-surgery (LSH, 1 ovary). We walked six blocks to the venue, and I only felt a little anxious when we were down on the floor, where we would usually stand. Fortunately, we found stools and spots with great sightlines up high and I was able to sit most of the time, and move around just a bit, which felt good. I couldn't have made it long at the show if I'd have been standing all night, but being seated was great. And we were only there for a couple of hours total, which helped.

I hope you find a good way to do or not do this as you need to, but above all listen to your body. It will tell you what you can do after surgery. If you have complications post-surgery, just remember it's not worth trading your health for a trip to Disneyland! But if it helps you heal, more power to you!

Here is some rental info for you...
Hope this helps. I think if you use a scooter and take it easy when needed it might be OK...
