Before booking your holiday
Speak to your doctor - Your doctor can give you advise on the types of climates to avoid, the treatment and care options available abroad, and whether any compulsory vaccinations will affect your medication.
Plan travel arrangements carefully - Where possible, avoid long haul flights with multiple stop-overs, and schedule some time for rest when you arrive at the destination.
Arrange Airline special assistance - Get in contact with the airline as soon as possible to notify them of any special arrangements you might need such as wheel chair access, special meals or seating close to the toilet.
Carry your medical advice card - If you have had brachytherapy, the implanted radioactive seeds could set off the airport security sensors, so make sure you have your medical advice card to hand, to avoid any potential delays.
Fish for benefits - Because of the nature of your condition, you could be entitled to early check-in and be allowed access to the airport lounge to relax before the flight. You don't know unless you ask...
Translate important medical documents - In countries where English is not widely spoken, it is wise to carry translated copies of your condition and treatment details along with the information on the medicines you take, in case you need to see a doctor whilst on holiday.
