How should I prepare for my at-home recovery?

  • Limit lifting anything heavier than a glass of water for the first two to four weeks after surgery. 
  • Limit lifting heavy objects for at least two months. 
  • Resume active movement of arm within limits of pain. 
  • Continue exercises at home as directed by your physical therapist and healthcare team. 
  • Avoid repetitive lifting.
  • If you live alone, ask a friend or family member to check in with you.
