I have persistent stabbing pains deep in my left shoulder joint

Resolved Question:

I have persistent stabbing pains deep in my left shoulder joint following a gastrsocopy (only a "minor hiatus hernia found - I am 66) two weeks ago. I suspect that my Vagus nerve may be the culprit. Are there any other condition(s) indicated?

This is classic gall bladder. The scope might have triggered it somehow I would get a gall bladder ultrasound
