Post-Op 6 days and suddenly developed shoulder pain.



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery May 20, 2020, everything has  been smooth sailing until last night around 2am, I woke up to incredible shoulder pains that just will not go away with Tylenol. Ever thing else is fine. No fever, no tummy pain, nothing. Just this awful shoulder pain. Anyone else’s have this issue?

Hi Ruth. I had the same on my left shoulder. I was told it was leftover gas but definitely get checked to be sure. Does walking help?

I walk over 2 miles a day and I have had zero pain till today at 2am. Walking has not helped today, only getting worse by the hour.

I had something similar and it was gas pain. But either call the surgeon or your primary and check with them (or ER) because it's better to just make sure...

As a Cardiac issue survivor - Go get checked out - Not saying you have issues, but DO NOT PUSH IT! Could be stress could be gas, But let the doc;s figure that stuff out

I am in the hospital and doc is trying to rule out a leak now. In lots of shoulder pain. No fever, no stomach pain, just shoulder pain.
