    Was wondering if anyone could tell me how long you have to wait after a punctured lung to start training again?
    I'm all healed up but when I asked the doctor he said I can do exercise but no violent exercise, as it may happen again.

    What is violent exercise?
    And if my body is used to this wont it be ok?

    I don't want this to happen again as I'm TERRIFIED of needles.:wow:
    So I don't want to push it.
    But I've not trained for years after having my daughter:baby: and I'm itching to get back.:cry:

    try the yang or chen man ching styles of tai chi.

    if nothing else, it'll keep you in shape until you're fully healed again

    you doctor is probably referring to explosive movements, or high intensity stuff that could heavily alter your breathing and cause your lung to re-open the half-healed puncture

    Thanks, but I'm worried if I try something different it may influence the training I've done and want to return to, Does that make sense?

    Plus, I am fully healed. And I was when he said this :-(

    makes sense, but you gotta work with what you have.

    besides, tai chi WILL help you with pretty much any other training you do, plus benefit you a lot more health-wise (particularly if you have organ damage that may become aggravated by heavy training). if you find the influence negative, just focus on training your other stuff and do the tai chi only in the training hall.
