Brain tumor removed and flying

Just had a 2.2 centimeter removed from my left temporal lobe and need to know if i am safe to fly now. It has been two months.

Dear Jordan110.

I do allow my patients to fly after around 10 days from craniotomy in general. However, each case is different and you should discuss your situation with your neurosurgeon.

thanks

I had surgery to remove a pituitary tumor in a place away from home. I few home just a few days after surgery. At that point, I was still not permitted to lift.  If you are concerned, do call your doctor's office and ask!
