Open lung biopsy

I had an open lung biopsy two years ago with a wedge resection.  I understand that an endoscopic stapler was used.  I have experienced pain in the area of the resection and now have a paralyzed right diaphragm.  A recent lung CT scan showed either postoperative changes of a retain foreign body.  The resection was on my lower right lobe.  I would like to see other CT scans of post surgical lung resections to see if the formations found in my scan look like staples used in a resection.  

Thanks for any help.
