Massive rotator cuff tear surgery

I had a massive rotator cuff tear last October---3 tendons torn completely off the bone. I had a fall in my yard and landed on my shoulder. I had surgery in February and the surgeon was only able to do a partial repair. I have been going to physical therapy for 4 weeks and my arm and shoulder feel much better. I should be able to stop wearing the sling by next week. Has anyone had a similar injury and I am just trying to find out if the outcome was good. I am hoping I can regain most of my arm and should function back. I have physical therapy until the middle of June.
