is it ok to to fly with an enlarged spleen?

Posted by twinkletoes

My husband just found out that he has a low platelet count (98) it's been slowly decreasing for some time. He also has an enlarged spleen and and very swollen lymphnode under his left armpit. He often complains of pain on his left side from his stomach radiating through to his back. He finds it hard to breathe at times, and difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep. 

 We have to wait for another appt with our dr. she ordered another ultrasound on his spleen and lymphs. Should we be taking a flight we have been planning on next week or cancel? I don't want to take any risks!


Any advice or help would be appreciated!


Thank you.
