My physical therapist and I agreed that I should wear my boot and use my cane to navigate all the walking I would need to do in the airport. And even then, I still may need to use the handicap transportation at the airport.
I wondered how I was going to get through TSA with my boot and my cane! As I approached the place where you take your shoes off, I was surrounded by 2 TSA agents who were more than willing to assist me. They took my cane and gave me one of theirs. (Mine had to be X-Rayed.) And then I took off my one shoe and placed it in the X-ray along with my carry on. Next I was helped up the ramp into the full body scan. I never noticed before that there is a a definite sharp decline to walk out of the body scan, so I needed help there as well.
After the body scan I was put in a roped off area where I offered to take off my boot. This suggestion was met with a lot of emphatic “NO’s” from more than one agent. Instead, the TSA agent scanned my boot!
