Let me start by saying I'm bummed that I have to spend my entire 8 day vacation in an ECV. I broke my foot last January 31, and have had three surgeries and possibly a fourth by the time I leave on May 10. I still have a considerable amount of pain in my foot. DH and I are staying off property at a time share that my in-laws are letting us use for free. We are renting a car, and hoping that the ECV will fit in it. I am overweight but that is not the reason I am using the ECV. If I don't have the surgery then I will not have to wear my best friend (my walking boot), so I may just wear my surgical shoe. My question is how much walking will I have to do, i.e. is there anyplace like the shops that I can't take the ECV in and will have to walk? I'm a seasoned veteran but I cannot remember, can I drive the ECV on to all of the transportation, I know there are spots on buses and people roll their eyes when they have to wait for an ECV but I am in a cast right now, and don't get it off until April 4, which only gives me 4 weeks to get back to complete normal before we leave. I am very self conscious and I hope people don't start whispering about me being an ECV, because I'm sure they will just think it's because I'm overweight. I know I shouldn't let what other people say to me bother me but I do. Thanks in advance for your advice, ps I'm only 25 and I know people will think it's because of my weight.
