Brief Answer:
Can be due to the effect of anaesthetics.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The breast and shoulder pain after a laparoscopy can be due to a muscle pain after a short general anaesthesia which is needed for laparoscopy. This muscle soreness usually decreases on its own in 2-3 weeks. Rest, hot compress and mild pain killers can be helpful. You can increase your fluid intake to counteract the effect of medicines. Having a healthy diet and a mild exercise will also help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
