I know that lots of people have surgery out of the country and I am assuming fly home to recover but I was curious at 2 weeks out if flying is okay to do?? Not for anything other than visiting family where I will be as pampered as I am at home! Thanks!!

I had to fly to Seattle yesterday for my one week check up and had no issues. If it is a long flight I would say just be sure to get up and move around. Otherwise you should be fine.

....and stay extra hydrated since travel/flying dehydrate you and you will be dehydrated already from the surgery and your diet at that point.

I had surgery in Mexico and flew home at 4 days post-op...totaling around 10 hours of travel time. I had no issues.

I flew cross-country again at about 8 weeks post-op with no issues.

I flew home from Mexico the next day after surgery. I was so tired from walking thru the airport I just closed my eyes and rested. It was ok. No problems.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
