Flying after a VAD

I had my stroke 1year and 4 months ago, from a vertebral artery dissection (VAD). I’m wondering if there are any survivors with a dissection that have flown after their injury? And what that experience was like? I get vertigo and lightheadness driving up to the mountains, so I’m a little nervous about flying. Any tips?

    HI. This topic comes up on the site during vacation season. :) I can share this information  on travel and heart disease. However, I think the best course of action is for you to check in with your medical team. Best Katie
