What Dr for upper body pain

I went to have a lymph node biopsy in the left lung. My right lung had multiple resections so I did not want my left lung touched. Aft surgery I was in extreme pain & my left lung sounded like loud belching or yawning when it hurt the worse. It took over a month before I found out what the surgery entailed. I paid $460 for records. Of course they are not talking. Alot of my left lung is missing. Alot of my right lung was already missing. Do you know i've only had benign tumors? When I stand my shoulders feel heavy and using my arms hurt. It's been 18 months since my surgery. No one understands why I hurt, I did come across where someone's Lung detached during surgery from their diaphragm causing belching noises. she had surgery. I quess mine Re-attached it's self back. Mine stopped hurting & making noises after 2 months. It seems my pain in the arm area is escalating and I'm in an awful situation. I'm oxygen 24/7 and very limited before now. Now if I just stand the shoulders hurt more & the arms are sooo painful. What Dr do I go to?
