Dear Delph,
10-14 days after cardiac surgery is the usual yard stick before flying. If you are on warfarin that should protect you from DVT''S. wear your surgical stockings while flying!
If you can walk 100 meters or 2 flight of steps the drop in Oxygen Saturation while flying should not effect you
Regards regards,
Pete
