Lung biopsy

Sadly Iím faced width having a needle biopsy on my lungs. Seems really invasive and I wondered if anyone on this forum had gon thru this? Did i affect your diving after the procedure? Did you suffer from complications? Looking for feedback on this procedure from a long time spearfishermans perspective, any insights would be appreciated.

I would call divers alert network and get their input before hand.

Re: Lung biopsy

I had a lung puncture many years ago and it healed 100% after few months.

Good luck!
