Hello. I am 32 and will have gynecomastia surgery in 1 month. My family proposed me to visit several theme parks in Orlando 1.5 months after surgery. Can I travel by plane (6 hours) ? Can I go to intense and high speed rides or do I have to avoid them?

Thanks in advance.

These questions are best posed to your surgeon, for he knows what was done and how your healing is progressing.

However, if all is going well, then IMHO, you should have no problem in traveling by plane and going on rides at any of the theme parks.  Enjoy!!

I would agree--presuming no unusual complications, you should be doing everything normal by 6 weeks post-op.
