Scuba Diving

Hi all, does anyone here scuba dive? I haven't seen any information on it. I haven't dived because when I was a Divemaster i had to watch for recent scar tissue as it traps bubbles and contributes to DCS. That's pretty treatable in the limbs (still to be avoided) but my scar tissue is in my CNS and an embolism there is a likely death sentence. I could be way off so if anyone has any info either way I'd really appreciate it.

Cheers, Fiona

I've been scuba diving since diagnosis and my neurologist and GP were fine to sign it off. I haven't gone very deep (25m max) and have only done a few dives on each trip, but I had no problems at all.
