Dear Dr. Longobardi,
I write you to know your opinion about possible side effects on recreational diving activity with ARA.
After a sport medicine visit, I am attending a 1st level ARA course.
In 2010 I was diagnosed with Mondor disease, with a subcutaneous-cordon in the left hemithorax with no pressure pain and without redness. The exams recommended by the angiologist (D-dimer, Protein S, fibrinogen, CAT scan with contrast medium) were negative. Today the not painful subcutaneous-cordon is still there.
I wonder if this previous history of thrombophlebitis might be a contraindication to recreational diving activity.
