I was told that flying with a fractured bone would cause a lot of pain due to cabin pressure. Anyone know from experience?
The pressure does impact you painfully but the jarring/turbulence will hit you more!
No, the aircraft is usually pressurized to around 8,000′
the pressure (or lack of at altitude ) is not the cause of the pain, the broken bone is.
I think if it is a recent break it can be painful in an unpressurized aircraft. Airliners are presurrized so you should be fine.
Not anymore than in your car or on a bus.
Only if the jack *** in front of you reclines into it, or, like happened to me with a dislocated hip, they miss the doorway and jam the bad leg into the wall while wheeling you around.
I travelled with a broken arm and leg, didn’t cause me anymore pain than being on the ground, unless it’s a bumpy landing and the fracture gets jarred.
