If you have had a PAD by-pass many years ago. Is it okay to go on a 10 hour airplane flight

I have flown shorter distances in the past and my ankles swell and I get a red rash on the back of my leg.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Based on your previous experiences, talk to your doctor. A 10 hour flight is obviously very long and unless you can stretch out, you may be risking worse symptoms than on shorter flights. We cannot answer a question like this. Please put a call in to your doc.
