Lil Wayne

Doctor's Orders ...

NO FLYING

Lil Wayne
is under STRICT ORDERS from his doctor to keep his ass off airplanes for the foreseeable future ... after his mid-flight medical emergency last week, TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ...  Weezy was hospitalized Friday following two seizure-like episodes on board back-to-back flights.

He's been recovering since at his mama's house -- but sources close to the rapper tell us, Weezy's doctor has ordered him to rest for the next week at least ... which means no working, and definitely no flying.

We're told Wayne's been to the doctor twice since his hospitalization and has nurses coming to check on him regularly.

The rapper's telling friends he feels the seizures were a result of working himself too hard after his jail stint -- and has been calling the health scare a "life-changing event" and an "eye-opener."

We're told Weezy is planning to return to his Miami home -- but not by plane ... he'll be traveling inside a luxury bus.

His fake seizures were caused by his BOGUS law suit.

The problem is the ergonomics of the airplane...they just need to give him a booster seat.

This BS story about seizures is just a bad lawyer trick because Lil wayne was so bad in his Deposition that his lawyer in no way could put him on the witness stand decided to use seizures for a appeals reason when he looses his case so his lawyers can claim he had mental issues,

With two mid-air episodes and now the doctor telling him no flying, it sounds like a hypobaric related disease. L'iL Wayne is clearly black. Sounds a lot like Sickle Cell http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sickle-cell_disease . Good luck with that! It's very debilitating in many cases.

I thought doctor's orders would be more along the lines of keeping a bag over his head for the foreseeable future.

BTW, flying DOES NOT cause seizures.

Doctors have added no breathing to recovery instructions. This post trauma care should benefit Lil Dumbass and society as a whole.
