Can anyone help with another concern re ET. I know in regards to treatment it is left up to our Haematologist and his advice. We were due to fly to Eastern Europe before my wife started treatment and the Dr said this was not a problem, as my wife will hydrate well and use flight socks, but the flight was not too long. What about long-haul flights ( ie UK to Rio !! ) are you still allowed to fly with ET, or is this a no-no. I have not heard anything to the contrary, and I don't think the travel insurance will be such a big issue. Any advice appreciated.
( and about insurance as well as my wife has Type 2 Diabetes. Never been a problem in the past, but now she has ET !! )
