Hi everyone. I am 49 years old and was diagnosed with budd chiari syndrome and polycythemia in 2014. After becoming horribly ill with sepsis in May that year, Ihave managed to stay quite stable (touching wood!!). Have been back at work for over a year and just getting on with it. My problem is that although I have been abroad (in Europe) a few times since then, I would love to go further afield this year for my 50th birthday. As soon as I declare the Budd chiari, the price shoots through the roof.... Any suggestions???
