" My hemotologist wrote me a prescription for a blood thinning shot he said I would need to give myself before flying. I would check with your dr. about this shot for more information.. I have not needed to use it yet . Something to check into before you fly. "

" Hi Alison, I just sent you a long reply to your last message, then I saw this. I am on a daily Aspirin - 75 mgs and this should help keep your blood thin. I haven't been told not to fly. Check with your doctor and look on the website I sent you - it is very helpful. Rosemary. x "
