I had a total shoulder arthroplasty in 2015 and didn't need any pain medication at all. Recovery was uneventful except that I couldn't raise my arm up until PT was about 6 trips underway. The only downfall was that the shoulder replacement failed and I have pain with it on a daily basis but it is tolerable.-at least for me with my pain threshold which is quite high apparently. You're in my prayers.
