Regular flying post-op
« on: April 20, 2012, 12:54:14 PM »
Hey I have a job that requires me to fly on a pressurized A/C for an average of 20-25 hours per week. Is the pressurization something to be concerned with as my surgery heals? I just got surgery yesterday, and as of now I am scheduled to resume flying after a month. Does that sound safe or should I wait longer?

In general, one month after surgery should be quite safe to fly.  If you have any specific poblems or questions, best to direct them to your surgeon.
