Post Number:#1  Postby zerocoolcool » Thu Oct 22, 2009 2:10 pm

I just had a chest tube done because of my right lung collapse, im feeling better now after the chest tube has been done.
My real question now is, can i still dive? i realy love diving so much and ireally wanna dive again.

hehe, must be the tall and thin kind of person  :)
anyhow, dont think its gonna be a problem. just make sure your wound tu dah heal properly first la. unless you get pneumothoraces quite often? just wondering, was it the large bore chest tube or the small one?
