HELP - Bad ear infection & scheduled to fly in 48 hours!
 
Hi everyone. I can't belive this. This saturday we are flying to Orlando for our Disney Wonder cruise that leavs sunday. I went to the doctor's this morning & I have a wicked ear infection in my left ear. The funny thing is is that last Tuesday I had a very bad ear infection in my right ear, so he put me on the antibiotic Zithromax, which I stopped taking a few days ago. Now, 1 week later it's my other ear! (I have not had ear infections since I was a kid)
My doctor gave me a new 10 day antiobiotic (Ceftin), he said I should be able to go on my vacation. (And he said I can drink alcohol on this antiobiotic if I want.). But just to be on the safe side he made an appointment with an ear nose & throat specialist at 4:00 today. He said not to start my new antiobiotic until I see this ear specialist, since he may advise something different.
My ear is so painfully clogged right now, I know you can't fly with a bad ear infection right? I have vacation insurance but I don't want to miss my cruise. Today is Thursday & my flight is at Saturday at 3:00.
Do you think i'll be able to go on my vacation? Please say a prayer i'll be better by then

Hope you doctor clears you to go, although I would think a flight might be painful. Perhaps there is something he or she can give you to help with the pressurized cabinof the plan. Good luck!

I have flown with a head cold and my ears got so plugged up (even with constant dosing of decongestants) that it took about 24 hours for them to clear. Follow your doctors advice!
