    Not sure what SP means but I had Vats in November last year. I've been told by pulmonologist that what I'm feeling is pleurisy and is normal. Just had steroids and antibiotics just in case. Use to get pleurisy several times a year so I know exactly how you feel and it's no fun!! Thank goodness I've only had it once since surgery. Hope you feel better soon and God's blessings to you and your family always!!
