I have a relative with suspected cirrhosis who is due to go on holiday soon. Is it safe to fly with liver cirrhosis and also can she take antimalarials? She's had conflicting advice from a liver specialist saying it's fine despite her platelets being 77 and a haematologist who said definitely don't take antimalarials as the platelets will drop further.
Everything has been booked and paid for but she's worried in case of traveller's diarrhoea or getting a chest infection...have heard that cirrhosis patients need immediate medical help.
Does anyone have any useful information or advice on this? It'd be much appreciated.
