Chest Infection after lumpectomy?

I had a lumpectomy last Thursday and it seems to be healing well, it was glued not stitched. But since yesterday I can’t stop coughing and my chest hurts and feels tight. Is this something anyone else has experienced? Feels a bit premature to go to doctor but then I wonder if my immune system is low after the surgery whether it’s better to be safe. Thanks x

I didn’t experience that and you have probably just picked up a virus, anyone coming into your home could have brought it in, it’s hard to avoid these things. I would pop over to your GP and get it checked out though, although I expect you have done already by now!
