Head injury, headaches, weakness. CT scan showed bruising on the brain. Safe to fly?
Hi My husband was attacked 1 week ago which lead to him becoming unconcious for approx 5-10 min and after a ct scan found bruising on the brain. He is still suffering bad headaches , feels very weak and wanting to sleep all the time. Is this normal? He is also due to fly to XXXXX in 2 weeks which is a 9 hour flight. will this be safe Many Thanks
if u have a ct scan findings normal..then it will be ok..u should be careful with few symptoms which can happen if there is increase ic pressure of brain like vomiting,unconciousness
u should get a check up with neurosurgeon prior of flight
