Long Travel With Ileostomy

Posted by OstomySister, on Tue May 14, 2019 12:52 pm

My brother just had debulking/HIPEC surgery here in Belgium. Has anyone travelled 11 hours like a month after surgery and had to get hydration solution or saline on a plane?

I flew three months after surgery to South America .   I would suggest checking out H2Ors on Amazon.  It’s a rehydration powder that you add to water - plenty of electolites, etc.   best of luck 😎

Thank you for your help Riva, I’ll be sure to stock up on them. I did call the airline Cathay Pacific and they need us to fill a MEDA (Medical Assistance) form signed by doctors to allow the hydration.
