Travel is Possible With Planning

Next » « Previous


The risk of getting sick on a trip is intensified by a lower immune system and by the fatigue that can come with treatment. 

You can travel safely during chemo or radiation treatment if your doctor permits travel.

A good trip starts with planning - which starts with a discussion with your doctor about what you can and cannot do, and places you should avoid.

Airlines, trains and boats legally have to accommodate special needs. Let them know what your needs are ahead of time.

Watch what you eat and drink while traveling, even in the United States - especially in third world countries.

Get travel insurance in case you end up not being able to go or have to abort the trip for health reasons. Look for a policy that does not have an exclusion for pre-existing health conditions. As a general matter, such policies have to be purchased within a short period of time after booking the trip in order to avoid a pre-existing condition exclusion.
