What should I expect after a shoulder replacement?


The surgery might leave you unable to move your fingers and wrist for 24 hours after the operation due to the anesthetic block used during the procedure. After a day or two in the hospital, you should gain enough mobility to go home. Within two months, your surgeon will likely start you on physical therapy to regain motion and strength. You will be as healed as the joint will allow six months after surgery.
