Best answer from physician doing the procedure but most likely to pinpoint site of leak hopefully preparatory to repair

Probably pectoralis (minor or major) muscle strain. If no bulge over arm or chest, likely there is no tear. Warm compresses, ibuprofen and rest (x7-10 days) should work. If bulge or pain not improving in 1 wk, see doctor

Don’t panic but yes, be concerned. Listeriosis often contracted from unpasteurized cheese, 3 cases/100,00 in US. 1600 cases total in US in 2015. Watch for stomach pain, muscle aches, chills, fever, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. If ANY develop within next 7-10 days see your doctor PROMPTLY.
