    So my Sister is still recovering from surgery on her leg. She got her cast off 3 weeks ago and I had hoped by now she’d be doing better than she is. She’s still limping and her leg gets a little swollen. She walks on it and has no limitations as to what she can do, but she just isn’t recovered enough to walk 8-10 miles a day over a few days in a row. Disney walking is not regular walking!
    I’d like to get her a pediatric knee scooter to use at Disneyland. She’d be able to alternate legs using both of them to push and I expect she will walk a portion of the day without the scooter. Is this feasible? The other option is a wheelchair. It’s looking like I’ll be the only adult to push her and she’s 11 and almost as big as I am. I’m not the strongest person and I’m a little worried about pushing her. She thinks she’d prefer the knee scooter but she hasn’t used one for any real length of time.
    Do you think we can get by with the knee scooter or do you think the wheel chair is necessary?

    Thank you!

    If she can use a knee scooter without any problems, then its should be OK.
