    When you breathe in general? Or when you take a deep breathe? I had a drain too (no complications - just how the surgeon did it) and I couldn't take a full deep breathe for 2 weeks (was able to breathe a bit deeper almost every day seemingly), and I couldn't sneeze for 2-1/2 weeks or so. The deep quick inhale before sneezing always hurt and caused me to not sneeze.
