Flying days after ESI not contraindicated make sure you stop blood thinners including asprin prior should be fine

In brief: Risk of flying

Man! For a question like this you must ask your team. They know you better and they know what they are doing and for what.
i do not. I would never rely on an internet site for an question like this. Ask them before they do the ESI and if flying is more important that what they are doing is for I would delay ESI.
