Does anyone know if it's still the best practice to wait for 30 days to fly after angio? Does this apply to stents as well?
I am seeing Dr.Sclafani in 2 1/2 weeks and am looking to book my travel, I can fly or come back on a train as I'm in Canada. Everyone is busy with the symposium (hope everyone is taking notes to share with us back here) so I thought I would pose the question here.
He has said after 3 days it's alright to fly and it would be much quicker but I've got the option of train, plane, and automobile (not really the automobile) so I would prefer the more prudent choice.
I'm seeing Dr Sclafani next week. I'm supposed to wait 72 hours before flying. There has been a bit of speculation on another thread about the benefits of spending some time horizontal especially if the IJVs were treated to keep the blood flowing there---kind of the opposite of IBT.
We're going to drive and visit family in Pennsylvania before flying back.
