In brief: Yes

Air left in the abdominal cavity gets under the diaphragm and can give this sensation,and it can make the shoulder ache.
Also take some deep breaths every hour while awake to keep the lungs expanded.

In brief: Yes

Air in the abdominal cavity from the procedure can take a while to re-absorb.
If you were examined and all was normal then that is the likely cause.
