Tips for travelling with an enlarged prostate
- If you are taking medication for prostate enlargement, remember to carry your medication on you just in case your luggage goes missing
- Bring a torch or leave a light on in your room for those trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night
- If travelling by airplane, try and sit in an aisle seat so that you have easier access to the bathroom
- Try and avoid cold and flu remedies in foreign countries as they may contain antihistamines or decongestants. These drugs can increase your symptoms
- If you’re not sure about whether you are fit enough to travel, speak to your GP before you book a holiday
- Make sure you have enough medication to last the duration of your holiday, plus a little extra just in case you lose some or are delayed
- Keep an up-to-date list of your medication in your wallet for ease of reference
- Try and avoid too much alcohol and caffeine, especially after dinner
- While away keep warm and exercise regularly as cold weather and lack of exercise can make your symptoms worse
- Keep stress levels low as this can lead to more frequent trips to the bathroom. So don’t plan too much while away and don’t leave packing until the last minute
- The National Health Service (NHS) advises all travellers to cover their holidays adequately with a private travel insurance policy, using their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) as additional cover only.
