It's been over 3 months since my pleurodesis (fusion of the lung to the pleural wall) which was necessary to stop reoccurring pleural effusions. Last night I kept waking up in pain and difficulty breathing. The x ray didn't show any fluid around my lung although the pain reminds me exactly like the reoccurring pleural effusions. My pulmonary specialist thinks its chronic pain related to the procedure.
Is it odd that this pain occurred out of the blue after 3 months without a pain issue?
