Hi everyone, posted a while back. I'm recovering from pneumothorax about seven weeks ago. Didn't have an operation but was in hospital for two weeks. First chest drain didn't work so had another one put in which was extremely painful. Then about two weeks after being discharged I got Covid.
I've been having a few twinges, a little bit of chest pain and occasional shortness of breath - but nothing like the shortness of breath I felt when the lung collapsed.
Anyway, I'm quite an anxious person so just been a bit worried about these twinges. I played tennis the other day and also went for a 10 min run - which I'm wondering has caused these twinges a bit, or set me back. I haven't really been doing any proper breathing exercises.
Basically, was wonderig if anyone could reassure me I'm okay!!
