    Default How soon can you travel by plane after sleeve?

    I am traveling to Mexico for surgery with Ariel Ortiz My surgery date is August 5th (Thursday, first appointment) and I am flying back to the east coast on Sunday, August 8th - my flight is at 1:30. Will I be ok to fly? It's only two full days of recovery really. Flight is 5 hours and I'm concerned about blood clots. Many thanks for anyone willing to share their experience.

    Hello! Why don't you use the train for your trip? as far as I know there shouldn't be problems and health risks if you go with train This is not a joke, this is health. Air travel, especially long-distance flights, carries serious risks to the health of passengers. In this case, I recommend you do not risk with your health and it is better to use train because it's not so risky.
    Recently, my sister had an operation in Germany and doctors forbade her don't to stay under the sun for a long time. she used this website https://www.dbfahrplan.com/de/ to track the time of trains and got to her room using the train. maybe you will find a similar alternative for yourself?

    I traveled 3 days post-op from Mexico. It was a bit unpleasant but not too bad. I'm sure you've heard not to drink any carbonated drinks on the flight back home. Here's another pro-tip: don't drink juice either if you're flying cross-country...apple and cranberry juice ferments just a little bit in your tiny stomach over long distances, and makes for a very unpleasant feeling.

    If I were you, I wouldn't put my health at risk. You would better stay a few weeks more for recovery. Although, I put once. Two years ago, I was on a Europe tour with my girlfriend. But before that, one month, I had a car incident, and it came with a knee injury. I had to stay home one more month without making sharp movements. Guess what? I went on the tour because I can't miss the g adventures discount codes, almost 20%. I suffered more badly after this.

    I don't think that the airline company has any problems with that. If you feel that you will resist the flight, then go ahead. For instance, last summer when I flew with my family to Germany, my daughter was after the surgery, so we changed the tickets because she had a small head ake. But after that, we were able to fly. Moreover, when I booked the tickets from dbauskunft, they asked us if we need some extra services. So you can also speak with the company from where you've purchased the tickets about your problem. I am sure they will be glad to help you.
