Fractured skull, inserted plate to patch up area. Having numbness around the incision. Can I travel?

I fractured my skull 5 weeks ago and have had a metal plate inserted to patch up the fracture. I feel fine and am healing very well with no side effects other than a little tiredness and a numb feeling around the incicion line on my head ( I had a peel to get access to the efected area). My question is, am I able to fly on the 12th of december? It s a 1hr 30min flight.

Hi, welcome to HCM
Numbness at incision site is common occuring due to healing process(granulations tissue)and will resolved in due course of time, no need to worry.
Regarding the air travelling , on 12 dec , you will complete 7-8 weeks, so you can fly definately. No any special precaution is necessary for the same.
Thanking you.
