Rotator cuff and labral repair surgery typically require being in a sling for three to six weeks. Usually, after six weeks, most people will be able to resume active movement. Recovery from shoulder surgery will be easier and more comfortable for patients who plan ahead, make a few temporary changes at home, obtain a few comfort items, and practice personal hygiene and dressing with the non-affected arm.
