Should be fine to fly. We drove home 3 hours after tx. and my son did fine (twice) and the last treatment from another location we had to fly and left the next morning... he was great. Have some tylenol just in case.

hi thanks for the reply,yes i know driving will be fine and ya i am aware that she could fly the following day..ie 24hrs after ga, but i was wondering if flying a few hrs after on the same day, would be allowed? has anyone ever flown this soon after laser treatment with a ga? my daughter is almost 3. im not sure what Tylenol is as i live in Ireland, but im guessing its some form of paracetamol???

Tylenol is for any discomfort...so the product you use for pain/fever type management for children would be good to have on hand.
From my experience we could have flown home after his treatment. Give yourself a few hours though. Of the 8 treatments he had...his worst reaction from G.a. was vomiting after he woke up. He was pretty upset for about an hour... took it easy for a couple more hours and then was fine. If you are concerned, I would put a call into your doctor for their recommendation.
