gas bubble after retinal detachment surgery
We have reservations for a ten week stay in AZ. I had an emergency surgery for retinal detachment on 12/10/09. We must go through an altitude of 3,500 tp 4,000 ft. on one day of travel. Our physician said to go slow if there is an elavation. Is this altitude too high?  If it is possible to go through without causing damage, how slow in number of miles per hour should we drive?

I have my patient take diamox.  It will lower your pressure.  I would be more concerned about being away for your retinal doctor for 10 weeks.
