Welcome to Healing Well and the Wrapped Club!
The swollen area where the wrap is and the numb areas are normal. the numbness is because nerves were cut and feeling should come back with time.
The shoulder pain can linger for a couple weeks or so. Walking helps. also have a pillow handy to hold against your stomach for the hiccups, coughs, and sneezes. Holding pressure on your belly when this happens lessens the pain a lot.
