Congested... Doctor??

Okay ladies... I am 5 days post op and feeling odd. I feel like I have a cold, but I am sure I don't. My chest is tight, and taking a deep breath makes me cough. Should I go to the doctor?? I would have to go to mg PCP, as my surgeons office will be closed tomorrow. I might just be over reacting. I am sure it is from the breathing tube, it just seems like it should be gone by now.
Thanks ladies!

Re: Congested... Doctor??

Yes, you should go to the doctor. You might have pneumonia which can be a complication after surgery. You need to do the breathing/coughing exercises that they gave you for after surgery or they might have given you a little plastic device called an incentive spirometer to keep your lungs clear. Please get back to us after you have seen a doctor.
