Adenoids are lymphatic tissue found in the airway behind the nose in the back of the throat. Adenoids are made up of the same type of tissue as the tonsils. Both help fight infections. However, unlike the tonsils, they cannot be seen by looking in the throat. Adenoids are found in children and begin to regress before puberty. In children, enlarged adenoids can cause obstruction of the nasal airway leading to difficulty breathing, breathing through the mouth, nasally voice, ...Read more
I have VATS removed bullae that caused pneumothorax. When can I fly and will I ever be able to scuba dive again? Thank you
Yes: Unless you have proper protection you are at risk for infection.See 1 more doctor answer
It depends: There are a number of dive computers or calculators to determine when it is safe to fly. This depends on the amount of diving you have done and the degree of nitrogen staturation. The dive master can help with this.See 2 more doctor answers
Scuba: For commercial flights FAA recommends at least 24-48 hours between routine SCUBA and flying. If you suffered decompression sickness (DCS) after diving you should consult a military flight surgeon, FAA Aerospace Medical Examiner (AME) or hyperbaric medicine specialist for clearance before you fly.

What to do if I am going to a beach and will also be doing scuba diving and snorkelling, is there anything I should be aware of?
Follow dive tables: Always dive with a buddy. Ensure that your equipment is in good working order before diving. Check your tank for air. Having been a navy diver ; having dove with some really wild guys - this is my big recommendation: don't screw around with marine wildlife.
Agree with Dr Wyatt: Even in the United States, there is great variability between physicians. Having been a military hyperbaric/ diving medical officer - I found that our standards were usually considerably higher than the civilian community. The most important thing is your safety. You list "difficulty breathing/ wheezing" under conditions and corticosteroids, Epinephrine ; bronchodialators under medications.See 2 more doctor answers
It depends: Safe time periods between your last dive and flight vary depending on how many dives you did and how aggressive your dives were (how deep and how long). You should be safe though if you wait 24 hrsSee 4 more doctor answers

Low: Vertigo from flying is very rare, vertigo from scuba diving is not as rare (but still rare). It is more likely that pressure change from being under water can lead to rupture of the inner ear causing something called a perilymph leak. When fluid from the inner ear leaks into the middle ear patients get severe vertigo, hearing loss and tinnitus. This is a true ear emergency.See 2 more doctor answers

Till it wears off: Since, from what I understand, scuba diving requires you to be aware of your conditions and be careful of things like remaining oxygen, etc, it would seem foolish to dive high, since cannabis interferes with those kind of functions. I would not call the state that normal use anything like 'schizophrenia, ' except in very vulnerable people, but it's not a good one for being deep underwater either!See 2 more doctor answers
Air: C02 Air Scrubbers clean the air on military submarines. Nitrogen narcosis can occur if a scuba diver is diving deeply. Contaminants are usually removed from air in subs due to air scrubber. I am not sure what the question is that you were asking. If I haven't answered it - please re-ask and re-phrase.
