    Hi all,

    Unfortunately we all have PE and (PH) and we wont to fly or thinking about flying, after all the reading and research about PE & (PH) we still ask should I, or is the question really have anyone flown and Died or what was the outcome of your flight any better any worst or was there no change in your PE & (PH). The reason why I say this is because I am quite sure we did not get PE & (PH) from flying.This weekend I'm going to a Funeral in NYC and yes I thought of flying for the first time since 2010 my PE-PH but after reading all of yours comments I guess I will drive or train it like I have been doing from FL.
