Post Pneumothorax back pain 3 months after surgery. Is it Normal?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello readers and repliers, three months after my surgery for spontaneous pneumothorax, i suddenly felt sharp stabbing pain in my back about 5 inches down from my neck and 1 inch left of my spine (Left lung is the one that collapsed). It is scary. I just want to know when you have had your surgery, did you feel the same pain or at least similar to it?
