    I'm sure it's fine! All depends on how you feel. If youre worried about germs, bring a mask. White blood count is lowest 7-10 days after chemo. Ask your doc just in case. You deserve a trip!

    I would check with your oncologist. Your immune system is weakened and a flight is filled with opportunities for virus's and bacteria to take advantage of your condition. It doesn't matter if the flight is short or long, you are still being exposed. Take care, Sharon

    Wear a mask and if you are at risk for lymphadema wear your compression garments....and have fun!

    You're sitting in a cabin with compressed air. It is dirty air that is recycled. The sick person could be on the back row. Ask your doctor.
