I have had 2 rotator cuff surgeries on my right shoulder. And I was able to drive within 3 weeks.
I am having a reverse total shoulder procedure done this summer and my ortho surgeon claimed recovery was much easier!
Best of luck to you and let us know how you are!

Reverse is easier but takes much longer to heal, reaching your potential in strength and range of motion. My surgeon says it’s about 3 years.

Easier surgery but much longer recovery. I’ve had both.

Easier surgery by far but much longer for full range of motion and strength recovery.
