Can I fly RIGHT after surgery???
I am considering surgery out of state but would like to come home right after and then go back out to get cast off. How soon after surgery can one fly???

My Dr told me I have to stay in town AT LEAST one week after surgery, that day he'll take off my cast and then I can fly home. I was thinking of doing the same thing your thinking but he basically forbids me to fly out any sooner. After that you should be fine. I posted this same question not too long ago. You should check it out to see the responses I got.

Hope this helps :)

A surgeon may allow that but I would recommend staying the first week in the event a complication comes up.
