Hello,

Once the infection or the inflammatory condition of appendix vanished or subsidies then she can fly. With the infection and inflammation of appendix, it is risky to travel. So first better to cure the disease and then she can fly. Else it is not advisable to fly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
