Pneumothorax

There appears to be some debate in the medical community (not so much here in Oz but overseas) that a spontaneous Pneumothorax is an absolute no for diving (understandable) but there is debate that trauma based Pneumothorax dosen't necessarily exclude you you absolute.

Just wondering if there is anyone who has had a pneumothorax or knows of someone who has either here in Oz or overseas? Preferablly a tension or trauma based type rather than spontaneous, and what their experience was? Ie are they recreational (sport or pro) or commercial divers. Were they cleared to get back in the water? What did they go through to get clearance?

Thanks.
