Looking for answer for the cause of my SP. You think dive-fly within one week could result to sudden collapsed of lung? I'm 50, used to be active person, healthy, non-smoker, small body frame. History of bronchitis in the past and cough that lasts for over a month.

    No I'm afraid not. More chance damage from the bronchitis caused it. I dive from both boat and plane. Our lungs are just bags. I was pushed one day into any possible reasons. Best I could think of was basically like a balloon you cam twist, squeeze shape it but one will always pop doing the same dog Ballon 1000 times. Our lungs are the same they take alot of beating for just two bags pretty much. Hindsight there is no answers we just don't know why just know how.
