I am glad to hear your surgery went well! I am sorry to hear the pain pills upset your stomach! After my shoulder surgery I know it was just a constant annoying ACHE like the bones were throbbing!! Since Ibuprophen acts like a natural anti inflammatory, that was all I was able to use. (All the other pain pills did a number on my stomach too!)
Good Luck with the recovery and yes, keep up with your physical therapy! It isn't fun DURING but it makes it feel better afterwards!
