No need to worry about flying!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

There is no need to get worried about flying with this injury. I will also appreciate if you could upload an image for review as well. In addition, take Ibuprofen for relief as well.

I hope to hear from you and promise to respond promptly. Until next, I wish you well.
