Michele,

Yes I had this symptom after one of my thorasic surgery procedures. I felt much better after the fluid was drained. Hope you do also. 

Stay the course.

After my lobectomy I had fluid in the chest cavity that did concern me but after seeing the doctor I learned that it can dissipate on its own after a while and that is what I experienced.  In my case there was no shortness of breath, but rather a gurgling when I would breathe deeply.  How are you doing since the draining of the fluid?
