You have answered this yourself, it is gas, which builds up during the day, and is worse immediately post-op because we are tipped with our head section downwards and leg section upwards to aid the surgery. They aim to remove the gas pumped in during surgery to aid the operation, but it lingers in the lowest point, hence the shoulder area. Seems very weird I know, but I understand from others that it eases, sometimes up to a week later. I get pain under my left bust, worse in the evening, again due to gas, at nearly 3 weeks out. I don’t know if you were give Zoton fast-tabs post-op as I was, but these can also cause gas build up.
