Dear Deb1
Firstly I want to say "shame!" I feel sorry for you.
You may have a secondary infection in the upper airways due to the anaesthetic and shock on your body. Try taking Echinaceae or Viral choice C to boost your immunity. Rinse your nose with Salt water ( 1/2 teaspoon salt on 1 glass of lukewarm water) twice a day. Ask your physiotherapist to give you some treatments for the pain in the shoulder to reduce the inflammation.
Hope you feel better soon!
