Hi there my mother fell down steps and has subdural bleed 5mm. Never lost consciousness and no worsening of bleed and she remains with no seizures. She did have headache and nausea but cant help but think that is related to not eating she is very time oriented in her daily eating schedule. Not for medical reasons just habit. Can she fly on a 2 hour flight safely?
