Firstly, yes, there is a risk involved - particularly if you are going somewhere with a language barrier or with a dubious quality health system. Secondly, yes, long flights will be even more draining and jetlag will be worse than when you were in full health. But with a few precautions, it is all manageable.
Find the nearest hospital to where you’re staying before you go. Make a note of the address in case you need to show it to a taxi diver in a hurry.
Take a copy of your relevant medical history in case you need to show the doctors where you are.
Travel with someone who knows your condition and is willing to help you if you need help.
Show your medical records to your airline - some have been known to upgrade patients to business or even first class on long haul flights if there are seats available.
Take your medications and make sure you have the approvals to take them on board the plane.
Finally, just enjoy yourself!
