A: Yes, after staying locally for one week, you will be able to travel home by normal means (plane, car, train). However due to the nature of travel, you will have a slightly higher risk of developing a blood clot. In addition to pharmacological intervention (i.e. aspirin, xarelto, etc), which will be determined by your provider, we highly recommend use of compression stockings, frequent ambulation, and ankle pumps (pointing and flexing the feet to promote blood flow).
Please note: If you do develop new onset calf pain after traveling, then you will need to go to your local Emergency Room to evaluate for a blood clot.
