Full thickness rotator cuff tear

I've had shoulder pain for over a year & I just found out I have a full thickness rotator cuff tear & need surgery, I've heard different things about recovery time, has anyone had the surgery & can shed some light on this for me. I haven't seen my OS yet & I'm just curious because I've heard this can be a very difficult surgery. The MRI also said I have some Glenoid labral degeneration, is that bad?

Also, I live alone is this going to be a problem?

Help, let me know!!

Re: Full thickness rotator cuff tear

if you have the surgery you will need help. monday will be 3 weeks for me. the 1st week of recover is awful, but slowly it gets easier. its hard to use the computer. its my right shoulder and i am right handed.
