Diagnosed with collapsed lung. Xray done. Precaution to be taken?

My 16 year old son was just diagnosed with a collapsed lung 2 days ago. He has had 3rounds of xrays and goes back Monday for another set to see if he can go back to school and then more xrays in 2 weeks to see about sports. I am having a hard time keeping him inactive. How much should I let him do and what happens if he does too much.
