Okay, I have terrible Plantar Fasciitis in both feet. I will be getting a Cortisone shot a few days before I leave but am worried that if all the walking really aggravates my feet I might need my crutches for help. So, I really don't need to carry them with me ON the plane, but am worried that there is no good way to check them without the possibility of damage. I am afraid the security people and such are really going to be suspicious if I am traveling with crutches that I am obviously not using? I know that I will look really silly! Plus it will be a pain to carry them and my carry ons and keep up with my 2 girls (by myself). I anticipate that I will have no problems walking on the way TO MCO, except if they make me remove my shoes and orthotics to go through security (I CAN NOT walk barefoot at all) Should I carry them or check them? And if I check them, how do I keep them safe?
