What does your doctor say?

Mine knew we were moving overseas shortly after diagnosis - they were fine with it. I left being on 60mg prednisone and didn't know if I'd have a hematologist once we got to Tokyo. I flew to many places overseas and really didn't know what my count was at the time.

Check with your doctor & see what he/she says - you need to do what is right for you not what others have done.
Take care & good luck!

I flew from UK to Australia and back last year. I saw haemo just before I left. She said I could fly with any count above zero
