Knee Replacement and WDW

I visit the DISability board daily. I dont reply every day but I really enjoy reading the kind and understanding responses from every one here. You all are so wonderful to those who reach out to others. I hope you can provide me some insight on this issue.


I had a knee replacement on Feb 6. DH and I will be at WDW on April 3. My Dr says I will be fine to go. But I am curious if anyone here has had a knee replacement and went to WDW around 8 weeks later. Can anyone give me an idea of what I can expect when I am at WDW. Will walking a lot begin to bother my knee? I have used a scooter for the past 5 years and I am considering using one again to prevent over doing it. DH says I should use the scooter and just forget walking for fear I might end up in pain and ruin my vacation.

As of right now I am at 3 weeks. My PT says I am ahead of schedule; however; I am having some serious tightness on the side of my knee. I have a 124 degree bend, using a cane and am only 2 degrees off from a straight let raise. But this tightness is really getting to me.


Any suggestions regarding WDW ?

Or any suggestions on how to get the side of the knee to loosen up?
