I was told the gas bubble will expand - in your eye - is you fly as the pressure is less while flying.  So no flying while you have the bubble.  

I do NOT know how long after the bubble is gone before you can fly.  I'm trying to find that out myself.

My doctor told me the standard amount of time is a year to be safe and make sure it's fully gone, But everyone's different.

It can vary, depending on how big the bubble is. Ask your dr. Don't plan to fly for a while at least...  Weeks, months?  Gas bubbles last different amounts of time too , depending on what gas was used.  Ask your doctor.
