The anesthesiologist will give you a nerve block prior to surgery to numb your shoulder, the effects of which will last another 12-24 hours after surgery to reduce discomfort. Afterwards, Tylenol or acetaminophen may be recommended for you to take 4 times a day to help with baseline pain control. Applying ice to the shoulder may also reduce pain and swelling. Other prescription medications such as anti-inflammatory medication or medication to combat severe pain may be prescribed depending on your specific needs.
