In brief: Don't hurry

We don't know the cause of your pneumothorax.
There was a hole or a tear in the lung itself causing air to come out into the thoracic cavity, increases the pressure there and push and collapse the lung like a balloon. That area is healing and you don't want to put strain or stress on it for some time to avoid recurrence. Same thing if from blebs or bullae. So take it easy firs.T.
