flying after angio or stents

Postby munchkin » Fri Jul 15, 2011 10:45 am

Hello

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.

Thanks for any information.

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.

I was reading about the laying down on the IVUS thread as well, it might be worthwhile to check it out with Dr.Sclafani to get his opinion.

There's something wrong with being in New York and being on bed rest though.

Thekla

Good luck at your appointment and have fun visiting family. Remember to stay hydrated, I think that advice is common among all of the Dr's.
