Severe Aortic Stenosis: Air Travel OK?
Short of it is we purchased tickets to fly from Texas to New Your a month ago. My annual heart check up has seen a change on my Aortic Stenosis to severe. It wasn’t a shocker, I have been experiencing daily dizzy spells and what I think is regurgitation(sp). Cardiologist said surgery to repair the valve must happen in next 2 months. I failed to ask my Cardiologist if I’m ok for air travel. I’m going to ask tomorrow first thing. Has anyone been in a similar situation and were you cleared to fly?
All the best.
