I RECENTLY SUFFERED A SPONTANEOUS PNEUMOTHORAX ( AROUND 10 % ). I WASN'T TREATED FOR IT, IN ABOUT 2 WEEKS IT WAS ALL GONE. I AM 36 YEARS OLD AND I FREEDIVE AND SPEARFISH IN DEPTHS UP TO 20 METRES. I WAS TOLD NOT TO DIVE AGAIN BUT I WOULD LIKE SOME FURTHER INFORMATION ON THE SUBJECT. CAN I DIVE TO SOME DPTH PERHAPS NOT SO DEEP ?ETC. I WOULD APRECIATE ANY HELP, INFOMATION OR LINK TO INFORMATION ON FREEDIVING AFTER PNEUMOTHORAX.
THANKS TO ALL IN ADVANCE

frediving shouldnt be to much bother as the only air you have in your lungs is compressed wen you dive down it is scuba diving were the problem is because wen you breathe compessed air a depth and then try to surface the air expands on the way up which means if you had pockets of air that cant escape they would expand and probably crush most of your chest>

Dont think you`re going to have any problems.. the air cant escape anywhere when free diving.
