Planning A Trip: Deciding Where To Go, How To Travel There, Where To Stay
Preparation is 9/10ths of what's necessary to travel safely.
Before undertaking any journey, ask your doctor if there are any restrictions or special requirements you should follow. While with your doctor, also ask for the best way to contact him or her if necessary while you are away. If your doctor doesn't like to give patients his or her e-mail address or mobile phone number, perhaps an exception can be made for this situation -- particularly when you're traveling across time zones which can make communication difficult.
If you are in a weakened condition, give serious consideration to traveling with a companion who is healthier than you and can help you in case something happens. If necessary, hire a nurse.
