Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. Please make sure to rate my customer service with 3 or more stars before leaving the site today. I do not get a salary here, so I depend on you to give me a positive rating, so I am compensated for doing my job. Thank you!

ANSWER: No, there will be no problems. TSA is aware and sensitive to the needs of travelers with medical conditions and physical disabilities. And those with medical conditions and physical disabilities can travel with medically necessary liquids in unlimited amounts.

One thing I would do is get in touch with TSA Cares, which can help you navigate the airport with a little more ease. You can contact them at (855) 787 - 2227. I recommend calling them 72 hours in advance of your travels, to help them best prepare for your arrival and accommodate your needs.

Something else to consider is using a TSA Notification Card, which you hand to officers to notify them that you might need a little extra time and/or attention, due to your medical condition. You can find the card here: https://www.tsa.gov/sites/default/files/disability_notification_cards.pdf

Kindly remember to give me a positive rating before leaving this site today. I do not get a salary here, so your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. If that does not happen, it is as if I never worked, which I am sure you agree would not be an ideal outcome. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, in order to help me get credit for doing my job.

Thank you!
