right shoulder pain after IV

A week from today, I went to the hospital after days of intense pain and swelling in my lower stomach and fevers. While there, I received blood tests, an ultrasound and an internal exam. This revealed that I had a burst ovarian cyst that released blood into my stomach. In order to do the ultrasound, the doctor told me I had to have a full bladder and therefore, hooked me up to an IV to recieve fluids. I was then discharged with the official diagnosis of "ovarian cyst" and given no painkillers or any other treatment. When I arrived at home, I was still in a lot of pain and had fevers and headaches also. I also started to experience a dull, severe pain in my right shoulder. This pain reminded me of a pain I used to experience for seconds at a time, years ago when I would run for miles and drink tons of water, however MUCH WORSE. About two days later the pain in my stomach started to go away, however it is now a week later and I still have constant headaches and an intense pain in my right shoulder. It hurts TREMENDOUSLY whenever I laugh or caugh. It also hurts much worse when I lay on my right side or on my back. What could this be ? Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.
