CSF middle ear leak and flying


DarWood

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Just looking for some information and medical advice really. I was diagnosed 3months ago by an ENT specialist with having a csf (Cerebrospinal fluid) leak in my right middle ear due to repetetive surgery to that ear. Obviously its come at an awkward time being diagnosed after I have booked everything. Im due to have a pre-assessment on the 4th of Jan for my upcoming surgery. My main concern is the flight. Due to the fluid build up, my eustation tube in my right ear is blocked which means it will be very difficult to fly without rupturing the ear drum and increasing the risk of contracting meningitus. My question is how long would it take recovery wise after the op (providing everything went ok) before I could safely fly?

 

I hopeing there is someone on these boards in that medical proffession who could answer? Otherwise I would have to wait till the pre-assessment to find out then, but im just being impatient.

 

Thanks in advance.

Only one answer I think: ask you doctor!! I wouldn't trust medical advice from a bunch of mongers... :GoldenSmile1:

This question can really be answered only by an ENT doc as it requires very specialized knowledge. If you are seeing him on Jan 4th, then that is the best person to ask. I doubt it would be any less than a month, but may be as long as 6 months. Ultimately, I would not go against his recommendations-after all it would be no fun lying in a Pattaya hospital with meningitis or having to redo the exact same surgery when you get back home. Pattaya will be there waiting for you then you are ready to travel again. Good luck with the procedure.

Kind of the response I was expecting to be honest. Oh well guess I'll have to wait and see :Cross_Fingers:

 

Cheers fellas :)
