Glad to hear you feel well. My shoulders hurt so bad after surgery I couldn't believe the pain. I burped it out though I think. My doc gave me something like an antacid if I remember right but walking was the best. Welcome to the first day of your new life.

Great to hear from you! The pain is probably gas, yes, even way up there. When you are allowed to get up and walk, it will help.
