I'm a 24/25 year old male, about 6'5, and not very active. Last year (when I was 23/24) I had a couple of collapses (Spontaneous Pneumothorax (or Pneumothoraces?)) of my left lung in quick succession, which lead to having a Pleurectomy and Blebectomy. In the past few months I've been having a tightness and discomfort (sometimes a little painful) in my chest around where the collapse and operation was, but not when I breath in like when my lung was collapsed; there has also been a gurgling feeling there. I believe that it is just a bit of nerve damage and some phantom sensation, and I have had another x-ray when it came about because I was worried. I was just wondering if this is normal for this type of operation and if anyone experiences similar feelings? Also, if anyone has any advice on ways that I can reduce this?
