Question
Posted : September 6, 2006
Hi There

Ive got a feeling that i never sent my last message. Sorry if i did. My question was that i had DCS Type 2 three weeks ago (bubble in the brain). I had 5 hours in the chamber and have fulling recovered. Are there any rules to do with consuming alcohol after having DCS. I had 5 pints on saturday and have a bit of a sore should now. I did wake up laying in a strange position (on my shoulder) and it is getting better and isnt sore when shanding but im a bit paranoid after the whole DCS incident.

Thanks

Neil
