I suffered a TBI 4.5 years ago and resumed scuba diving 18 months after the accident. Previously I have been able to self certify myself for scuba diving as I did not fall into any of their 'at risk categories'. Now they have changed their guidelines stating the those suffering Severe brain Injury cannot dive for at least 5 years. As my brain injury suffered no invasive trauma or invasive surgery I believe after 4.5 years the risk of developing epilepsy or convulsions is extremely small. Can anyone confirm this and point me in the direction of scientific evidence to prove this to my diving body BSAC. Many thanks Chris Hallam
