Pain after pneumothorax?

Posted , 1 user is following.

hello, 21m 150lbs i recently had a spontaneous collapse in my left lung about 25%. i had a chest tube put in and spent 6 days in the hospital. i was discharged with about a 5% collapse and was told to rest until the follow up x ray. its currently 3 days since I've been discharged and i have soreness in my left shoulder. What pain should i be expecting during the first two weeks of recovery?
