yeah, i know this isn't about lung cancer, but i had no idea where else to post. well, i had a partial lung collapse (spontaneous) about two weeks ago. i was in the hospital for about 2 days (with the freakin tube stuck inside me) and my CT scan showed NO complications whatsoever. On july 19th, i am planning on going to SIX FLAGS (woo!), but I am wondering, is it safe to ride rollercoasters? Doc said that i can't scubadive or skydive, but I'm wondering if rollercoasters could affect the pressure on my body and maybe trigger another collapse. In my opinion, i dont think my lung will collapse. last week, i started going back to working out and playing tennis and i feel completely fine. online, there have been articles saying how people usually have trouble breathing after a collpase, but because mine was so minor, i breathe perfectly fine (ive never smoked in my life and don't plan on it).

soooo, can i ride rollercoasters?

thanks!!!
