Hi, this is my first post on here.
My question is about long haul flights. Is it ok to fly and has anyone had to have injections in stomach before flights?
I was diagnosed with MPN beginning of July and been told likely to be ET but still waiting for bone marrow results as small amount of scaring shown, so more tests required. I am 59 years and take aspirin and hydroxycarbamide. My platkets have come down from 857 to 738 since taking tablets but tablets have been increased at weekends and doc wants them into the 400s. I am about to go on a 4 hour flight to turkey in a couple of weeks and doc said should wear flight soaks, move about, drink plenty of water, no alcohol or caffine on flight. But also wants me to have injection in stomach before each flight (can't recall name but one given for dvt) as platlets still high . Just wanted to hear from anyone else on this topic please.
