Having completed my six cycles of Chemo I'm now trying to get back into life. One of the by-products of my situation is I've changed roles which means I won't be travelling anywhere near as much especially to London at rush hour. However, I will have to a make occasional flights. This and the hope to get some (slightly) warmer weather for holidays soon had focussed my mind on air travel and being cooped up in aeroplanes for hours.
My fear, people coughing over me. If you are like me have a look at the BBC's Bang Goes The Theory, Series 7, Episode 2. Maggie Philbin (hopefully spelt correcty) goes to a test centre in Germany to look at this. Simple and interesting demonstration of fluid dynamics. Whilst superficial it is the first article and is worth a short watch. Still on iPlayer and I've nowt to do with the Beeb!
Had my first experience of air travel Manchester to Munich this week, still seem OK. Was quite nervous, not of being in aeroplane but queuing for security etc, everything else you can take evasive action for.
One odd side-effect swollen left ankle, it had gone down next day, never had this before but have heard of this from others (not CLL related, just general). Only occurred on return journey
Sorry folks put on CLLSA blog, just moved to community blog.
