Hi guys.

Had my first and hopefully last SP 2 years ago, no operation just needle.
Now, I'm taking a 2 hour flight on friday and I've read a bit here on the forum that it could be life threatening to fly?

How many of you have been flying after your SP? I spoke with a nurse from the hospital and she told me there shouldn't be any problems for me to fly.

But I'm still kinda worried after reading that you actually could die during the flight if a bleb pops?

Hmm.. Any feedback would be really nice Smile

Hi
I am flying on friday as well!
I am going from Manchester to Egypt. I have flown since my surgery 12 months ago and was fine. I know its alarming, but honestly I got myself in a right state and had NO pain at all.
On such a short flight at yours, I am sure you will be ok.
Enjoy it.
Take care
Anne
