In brief: Postop shoulder

Depends on how far out from surgery you are and your symptoms.
Possibilities include hematoma formation, normal postoperative soft tissue swelling, hardware or repair failure, infection, etc. The most important thing you can do is follow up with your routine postoperative checks that your shoulder surgeon has arranged.
