My husband wants to celebrate our 50th Anniversary in Hawaii. We live on the East Coast. I have flown many times, and have had bronch for many years. I never knew this I had it til 2014. Well now I do clearence, no cough, have had exerbations, and antibiotics clear these up. My problem is I have had bleeds. I never know when. They always stop if I stay calm.
I hate to keep my husband from his dream, but wonder how safe I will be on a plane. We would be flying in stages with 2 day breaks. I only worry if plane pressure will hurt or sqeeze my lungs....I know it seems foolish to question, but my doctor just said to go...You'll be fine.
