Child had surgery for skull fracture. Is travelling safe?

My 5 year old son suffered a bang to the head resulting in a depressed skull fracture for which he required surgery. He also suffered a small brain bleed. He has been discharged from hospital now but no playground activity for 2 months and contact sports for 6 months. Was thinking of going on a little family holiday but worried about the air pressure and the effects it may have. thankyou

Travelling can safely be done after a surgery for depressed skull fracture. Only activities where there is a risk of repeat trauma to that spot is to be avoided. Travelling is fine.
Hope that helps
God bless you
