painful sneezing after stents

I had a stent placed two weeks ago.  Since the procedure, everytime I sneeze it hurts in the center of my chest.  It doesn't last long but it hurts.  I dread sneezing anymore because I know the pain will follow.  Any advise?  Why does it happen?  Will it go away?  I asked my cardiologist and he never heard of it.  I have no pain coughing, only sneezing.

Never heard of it either, hoping some one with more experience with stents replies as well.
