What to Pack in Your Carry-on Bag

Here is a list of what to pack in your carry-on bag. My top five must-haves in my carryon luggage when I’m flying anywhere.  Some of the things are specific to breast cancer survivors. On my flight back from Iceland I forgot to put on my socks and my sleeve.

What to Pack in Your Carry-on Bag

Compression Socks are a must for me when I travel. I 2016 I suffered a pulmonary embolism after I cam back from Australia. Although the doctors were not sure if I received the blood clots were caused by flying or the fractured ankle that I suffered from after about weeks of returning home. Some breast cancer treatments could also be the cause. I’ve traveled wearing a couple of different brands, and these by Conrads are my favorite. They are very comfortable and easy to pull over my calves.

Compression sleeves are another must for me when I am flying. One of the side effects of surgery and radiation is lymphedema. Lymphedema can cause swelling in your arms. Wearing a  compression sleeve can help prevent or reduce the swelling. I also have to wear the sleeve when I am exercising or outside in extreme heat.

I resisted buying wireless earbuds for a long time. It’s mostly because I’m afraid of losing them. I’m working up to getting the completely wireless earphones. It looks creepy to me. I do love Sony’s wireless headset. The great thing about these headsets is they work as earplugs. I’ve used them to block the noises of passengers without playing in music or movies.

The last thing on my list is my Anker Power bank. Although most airlines have USB plugs on the airline seats, I keep this nearby when I’m at the airport. There is always I fight to the outlet and I can sit anywhere and charge my phone and iPod battery. Someone suggested the Anker Power bank used to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and I was able to charge my cellphone and camera for six days while I was hiking.

If you like it pin it.
