Ability to function. After shoulder replacement while using a walker
Very little for the first 2 weeks, arm dangling…etc. Please read through this thread and see my note about requesting a nerve block from your anesthesiologist. It made the first week post surgery easy.

Special good wishes @barocco. My rehab went smoothly. I had to keep my arm in an immobilizer. I wish I had known about the nerve block. I had also just recovered from several fractures in the elbow. And my saving grace was the blocks of ice water used that brought cold water to the shoulder. Very comforting.
May you find good health and joy.
