    Post Op Breathing complication

    Hello I am a 27 year old female. I had surgery one month ago to remove a osteochondroma in my left distal femur. They gave me two types of anesthesia, one was through my IV and they injected anesthesia in my left leg as well. The surgery was about 20 min but I woke up 3 1/2 hours later. Ever since my surgery I have been having shortness of breath, chest pressure, hurts a little when breathing. Since my surgery it's getting worse. I went to the hospital a few days ago. They did d dimer blood test to confirm if any blood clots but they said everything was clean. The doctor gave me Breo Elliptca inhaler to use 200/25 mcg for one month to help with my breathing. She said it's a post op complication that may have occurred. But I'm still having these issues especially more at night. Can someone help me figure out what this is and if I will get better ?
