I had arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery 2 days ago (SLAP repair, bicipital tenodesis, subacromial decompression, 2 partial tendons tear repairs). I was told pre-op I would likely wear the sling for 2 weeks and start PT then unless the repair was more extensive once he actually got in there. I will get to discuss it further at my 10-14 day post-op visit, but I did contact the triage nurse because I am scheduled to work 2.5 weeks post-op and need full use of both hands. She contacted the surgeon and he said that would be fine, as well as driving within 1 week of surgery. Nothing I read online supports this; in fact, I read one study that stated 6 weeks of immobilization might be better than early movement and PT. I have canceled that first work date (I am an independent contractor), but I am supposed to work weekly thereafter (1-3 days a week, lots of arm movement required, no lifting). I am worried about re-injuring the shoulder. I know all surgeons are different, but this seems much to early a return to activity. Please advise.
