Flying to Portugal

I have had a mastotomy about 4 weeks ago. I have a hickman line in. I want to fly to Portugal for a week. I have been told by BCN that this will be ok. However, I am a bit nervous of doing it. Has anyone else been in the same situation.


Haven’t flown with Hickman, but did have infection in mine which resulted in septicemia and me nearly dying… I think I’d make sure I had insurance (eurotunnel offer best deal) and just keep a very watchful eye. Even having had my experience, I know I was in a small minority and would go for it - you need a break after surgery - I flew to Turkey 4 weeks after my node clearance and WLE - AOK. Regularly fly now with bone mets. Hope this helps.
