It is one of the risks of diving. I firmly believe that I could have done the exact same profile on another day and been fine.
It is amazing what you learn when you experience the bends. The attitude that "if you were bent once - you must be an idiot - is perhaps one of the most damaging attitueds out there. It keeps some people from seeking appropriate chamber treatment. That said - what did I learn?
1. I think if I were "bent" again I would recognize it a whole lot quicker and could cut through one of the most dangerous symptoms of being bent - denial - faster.
I'm not giving advice on deep diving. I'm defending recreational dive limits.
