In brief: Depends

First recurrence is most common between 6 months and 3 years.
Published 5yr first recurrence rates for primary spontaneous pneumothorax are around 20-30+%. For secondary spontaneous pneumothorax, around 40+%.

In brief: Lung collpase

Probably you have pulmonary blebs.
If this is true then its more likely that it will collapse in the future.
