    Hi Claire,

    I have flown prior to my first op and 6 weeks after my second, it will

    be fine.  Have a fantastic holiday.

      Thnks a mill Donna, that's a relief. Did you take any medication before the flight?

    Hi Claire,

    No meds apart from a few strong vodkas at the Airport smile

    If you feel uptight take some Kalms maybe, but honestly you

    will be fine.
