    HELP! Please! Pneumothorax decision

    Hi. I'm 17 years old and had a Spontanious Pneumothorax about a month ago. After being aspirated twice I then had to have a chest drain put in and was in hospital for 5 days. I still don't feel right...but am improving everyday. The chest specialist says my lung is now fully inflated and I should be back to normal.
    I'm due to fly to Romania on august 12th for 10 days. It will be a busy trip helping in an orphanage, in a deprived area. It will be far, on bad roads, from a hospital and our living facilities will be poor. Earlier this year I fell and am still suffering from a bad back as I had a bulging disc...
    I can't decide whether to risk it and go or not go and miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity....
    Please help me decide! Thanks.
