My friend had an ischemic stroke 8 months ago. Would he be allowed to take a 2 hour flight? I'm thnking in terms of cabin pressure. Could that possibly give him another stroke?

Hi sweetsusie,

It would be best if your friend consulted his physician about this before flying. There may be certain measures he needs to take to help prevent another TIA or a full stroke from happening. Only his doctor will know the specifics of his situation and will be able to give advice accordingly.

Best wishes,
Atti
