It is common to have nerve irritation due to the carbon dioxide used in the surgery. It irritates the nerve under your diaphragm and causes referred pain to the shoulder. Some people have it for 24 hours some longer. Mine I've had for 9 months. There is nothing you can do.

This could be one cause. I would see your GP and/or surgeon for more advice.
