With shoulder surgeries I would look at getting a 9MM carbine, an AR, or even a M1 Carbine reproduction with Hornady critical defense 30cal ammo.

Consider the Mossberg 500 in .410 caliber with a laser. I know, it's too small, but is it? The police and FBI used a .40 cal pistol for years before they downsized to the 9mm. There are now self defense loads available that are very effective. The gun is inexpensive, reliable, small, easy to handle. Add a light and you have everything you need.

"The Blackhawk Knoxx SpecOps Gen III Stock for the Remington 870 reduces felt recoil by up to 80%! Incorporating dual recoil-compensation systems, this rugged synthetic stock reduces muzzle rise and eliminates cheek-slap, too, resulting in improved shooter confidence."

Sore Shotgun Shoulder

You want to talk about kick and pain ? Try a 9 inch barrel 12 gauge Subu Super Shorty ( also my wife's pet name). I found but hard to find, Remington Managed Recoil 5 packs, about $5. Only available in slugs or buckshot. HALF the Recoil, but 100 ft lbs more of energy and 100 fps faster. I can shoot that pistol grip all day now.

That wouldn't be ideal for competition marksmanship competitions. But for a 5 yard max range with a shotgun? I feel like you could learn to be accurate and efficient enough for home defense with that pretty quick
I had a problem with my right elbow a couple years ago that shooting aggravated. I started shooting handguns left handed, then long guns.
RH bolt guns left handed are a bit of a challenge, but pump shotguns, except for loading, weren't a problem
Now that my elbow is healed I still shoot my home defense weapons left handed as much as right, just because you never know if you'll need it.

KSG

I don’t have one yet but I am drooling over the KSG12. Short length, heavy on capacity, and reliability of a pump. Recoil is a function ofcwhat you feed her. I prefer lighter shot loads gor home defense for safety reasons.

Mossy Shockwave, with a Opsol Mini-Clip (An adaptor made in Texas) and Aguila mini-shells in either Buck or Slug. I'm 60, and have had shoulder issues of my own, but the Shockwave was really easy to get used to. I'm even good with Federal full power 00 Buck now.

Before you go to a smaller gauge, consider:

Federal, Remington and Winchester all offer 8 pellet low recoil twelve gauge 00B loads under various promotional names. All fire 8 pellets running approximately 50 grains each - that is 400 grains. Yes, all use reduced diameter 00B, averaging .323" in diameter. All of these loads are rated at 1145 fps from industry standard 30" test barrels. Actual velocities run in the 1060 to 1100 fps range from defensive and field length barrels. Yes, Federal's Flite-Control wad put tight patterns in the same sentence with cylinder bore. However, at "hallway" distances, say 30 feet, Remington and Winchester versions will indeed deliver "less than fist size" patterns.

Here is a site that will help you calculate actual recoil energy.

http://www.omahamarian.org/trap/shotshellenergy.html

Yes autoloaders and fixed breech shotguns - with all else equal - will deliver the same recoil impulse. However, autoloading shotgun actions, spread the recoil impulse over longer time - depending on the action type.

Kinda spendy but that aside Remington's V3 Tac-13 (American Rifleman Golden Bullseye Awards 2020 winner - page 70 May 2020) would seem to deserve a look.
