I have had an MRI which has shown some ischemic changes in my brain. Is it safe for me to fly long haul ie 9 hours?
Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like but we do see those kinds of changes in many patients over the age of 50. In general they don't indicate anything serious and there should be no problem with your taking a long flight. But since I'm not your doctor, you should discuss this with him, too
