Nuss procedure

Posted , 1 user is following.

I had the nuss procedure done a week ago and I went for my first checkup a day or two ago and the surgeon said I have a bit of pneumonia in my lungs so he gave me antibiotics, a bottle to blow into every hour it has water in it. And he said I must cough the phlegm out, for the most part I haven't really felt any pain but when I cough I get the worst heart burn (not too sure if it is heart burn though it's just the best idea I could make out of the situation) but it doesn't feel like normal heartburn it feels like my heart is actually on fire and I can't keep coughing when I start because the pain is too much. Please could somebody help me here, what could I do or explain what I am feeling.
