Welcome to Health Care Magic

The limited information provided is not sufficient enough to arrive at an appropriate conclusion..
It is probably pleural or pericardial rub...
Examination and ECHOcardiogram will be necessary to conclude
The treating doctor alone can suggest based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
