Skydive after pneumothorax

Hi guys,

So 6 months ago I did a spontaneous pneumothorax, my left lung collapse about 20%. I It was my first one, just passed 4 days in the hospital with a tube chest and problem solved

Before the pneumothorax I was smoker for 3 years, but since then I stopped at all.

 In the time I was very thin, about 59kg, now 6 months later I have more 23kg

I had started a skydive course before the pneumothorax, did 6 jumps (7 with the tandem one), and my last jump was Friday and my lung collapse in the next Wednesday.

Doctors have kinda different opinions about this, some say never skydive again, and others say that have no problem in jumping, that my lung collapse because I was smoker. But soon I will talk with my pneumology doctor to check if everything it's ok, and in his opinion if I can jump again.

So the question is: CAN I DREAM WITH SKYDIVE AGAIN ??

I would like to ear u guys opinion, 



Take care and blue skies
