Had an Austin Bunionectomy, bones not healed, fracture. Will flying have any side effect on fracture?

Had an Austin Bunionectomy 4 months ago and the bones have not healed yet ( nonunion ). Went to doctor yesterday and took xrays and looks like I have a fracture . Put me in a walking boot and made an appointment with an Ankle/ Foot Orthopedic for next week. I am suppose to fly out of town for a couple of days. Is this a wise decision? Will flying have any affect on my fracture?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

You can do any activity but for producing movement at the fracture site in the foot.

Flying will not have any impact on the fracture healing or its outcome. So, go ahead.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
