One week after my broncoscopy, I'm experiencing sharp pains throughout my chest and side area when I cough. If I am still and dont cough I'm good.

Were you able to go back to your attending doctor for follow-up? As mentioned from the other post, the pain could be due to muscle issues, existing medical conditions or from infection or bleeding that is often associated with the procedure. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
