I've just completed my first (short haul) flights since surgery in February. I took aisle seats near the back of the aircraft, figuring that my odds of being between the drink cart and the restroom were good. No issues. In fact, yesterday, I didn't think to put a shield in, and I did fine without it.
DO make sure you use the airport retroom just before boarding time. The half-hour or so for boarding, take off and initial climb are not good times to access the restroom on the plane.
