The pain on deep breathing is due to opacities and deep breathiing exercise gives good relief. In Ayurveda we use mrig shring bhasam with hot water bd for five days.

There will be chest pain b'coz of healed calcified fluid in your chest wall. However you need to do deep breathing exercises daily early morning in open air atlest 10 minutes per day for atleast one month. With as required pain killers.

Many a times it has been found out that the pleural effusion( water in chest as you say),may be because of underlying Koch's infection which may result in opacities known as healed lesions.
So again investigate thoroughly for any underlying pathology.
Pulmonologist can guide you properly.
