Patient :Would it be safe for my father to fly? He suffered from a major stroke almost two years ago with a 98 percent blockage in the main artery in his neck, has diabetes, and had a kidney removed about 3-4 months ago due to kidney cancer. He has recovered from the surgery completely. However, the doctors could not remove the blockage in his neck, because it was too close to his brain stem and he also had a few more blockages else where. Is it safe for him to fly on a plane for about 2-3 hours with all of these health issues?
