Scuba Diving after pneumothorax.

February 28, 2010 7:40am CST
Six months ago I had an accident. As a result: two broken ribs and a colapsed lung. I am very healthy right now but there's a problem. I am a scuba diver. Each doctor has shown a different opinion about my case. However, the rule in scuba diving is always to keep the most consevative opinion. Scince the accident I haven't dived. My question is: Do you know anyone who has dived again after a pneumothorax?

Hi, tereza_chaul. Welcome to myLot! I am very sorry for the accident that you have been in. I don't know of anyone personally that has Pneumothorax. This sounds very terrible. I hope that you will regain your strength as time progresses. I hope that you will heal up very soon too.
