Heart Surgery

My husband had double heart bypass 7 months ago. Surgery and recovery were on time and uneventful.  However, within the last two weeks he has been experiencing pain in his left side when he takes a deep breath.  Is this something to be concerned about?

Hi there!

Pain/ discomfort while breathing is more likely to be due to respiratory tract causes such as pleuritis, lower respiratory tract infection, chest wall inflammation etc. I would suggest getting this examined by an internist or a pulmonologist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
