Does anyone have any information on the safety of flying and preventing blood clots after surgery? For those of you who flew to see Meyers, how many days did you wait after surgery before flying home? Thanks.
I flew across the country 2 days after surgery with no problems. You are released from the hospital the next day (one night stay) and are free to fly then. I heard nothing about blood clots being a concern and I had no problems. I had one stopover to get up and move but I felt fine the whole time and I never used any pain meds.
