    Back To Surgeon for chest pain

    Sorry to hear of your problems! I feel it's best to get in there and see your Dr. I'm about 4 1/2 weeks out, and I do not experience any of the things you described. I just had my first sneeze at 4 weeks out, and I did not have pain. I was so scared that I would though, from reading stories...
