when can she fly

My mum has just undergone a wedge resection of a 22mm lesion in left lung. Seems to have gone well, does anyone have experience of flying after procedure. We have apreviously booked flight for amonths time, just 2 hrs to our family villa in Spain. Would do her the world of good to recover in the sun. Will ask surgeon but hoping for some advise . Thanks Fran

Hello Fran

Lorraine from the Foundation here, sorry I can't provide any specific experience.

You might like to follow this link to some information avaialble on our website.

As you say best to talk this through with the medical team who are looking after your mum. Also worth thinking about travel insurance, a factsheet is available.

best wishes
