It usually takes between four and six months to fully recover from rotator cuff surgery. The first couple weeks after the surgery, the arm has to remain immobilized; after this, physical therapy begins and becomes more intense over the weeks to follow. A person's overall health, whether they smoke, and if their blood sugar is controlled (if they have diabetes) can all make a large difference on how well he or she will heal from the surgery and how quickly he or she will be able to have full use of their arm again.
Usually after the first week it starts getting better, but it depends on you following doctor's advice. I had this procedure 2 years ago, for the first week it was VERY VERY rough but the next week it was better by the third week, it was back to business as usual. the first week is important, no activity at all.
I had rotator cuff surgery and was in a sling and immobilized for 1 week. Then, went to physical therapy and was told to do a few exercises letting my arm drop down to my side and just let it move in small circles...moving it with the momentum of your body. The Dr. also told me to leave it out of my sling at home..but never to try to raise it above my shoulder height, or to try and reach my hand where I could not see it. When going out in public, to wear my sling. Every week I attend physical therapy. I am at week 4 and being able to do most normal movements..except any lifting. I had arthroscopic surgery, and I am told it is very different from the way it used to be done, which I am sure it makes a difference with your recovery.
The torn muscles of the rotator cuff will not naturally repair themselves, so they will not actually be healed. Generally speaking, there are two results that can occur after a torn rotator cuff. Either it will stabilize, which will cause the symptoms to disappear, or it will get worse. The best hope is that the pain and immobility will get better with time. The two primary objectives of both therapy and surgery are alleviating pain and increasing mobility. Symptoms of a rotator cuff tear can be classified into two categories: minimal and grave. Minimal symptoms are characterized by a level of pain that is tolerable and by the return of function with time. These symptoms are certainly annoying but they will eventually go away and they won't hinder you for life. To deal with these minimal symptoms, surgery is not required. These tears are likely to be very small and if you rest, take appropriate medication, and undergo proper physical therapy, they will not cause long-term problems. With time and care, you will be back to your old self.
It all depends on how bad the injury was and what they had to repair. Also, depends on how you heal, and how you take care of your shoulder, and do your home and therapy exercises consistently. Im 18 and been having shoulder problems since playing baseball at 16. I had rotator cuff surgery in December of 2011, and 2 1/2 months later I started shooting and playing basketball. Im a pitcher so it will be awhile until I can start light throwing again, but I have no pain shooting basketball. Just go to therapy and you will be okay
