l had right lower lobe removed Sept 16. Have done very well but the other day was so sore couldn't even take a deep breath. My boyfriend said I was moaning in my sleep. Was sore for two days.  Does this occasionally happen?  I was feeling pretty good before this.

    For many the pain continues

    For many the pain continues for several months.  If the pain is ever accompanied by shortness of breat or elevated heart rate it could be an indication of a pleural effusion.
