I have recently been fortunate enough to go abroad to sunnier places on two 1 week holidays which involved flying however within two/three days days after returning home developed chest infections and although treated with antibiotics my breathing capacity has now declined and I am very concerned about flying again. After the first flight I also needed a course of steroids but unfortunately developed side effects this time. I am in my early seventies and have suffered for many years with bronchitis and asthma and now worry that my breathing has been adversely affected by flying. I wondered if anybody has experienced similar problems and whether there are suggestions to help.
