How long is the recovery time from a total shoulder replacement?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

3-6 months: It takes at least 3 months to recover from a shoulder replacement. It is not uncommon for the recovery to take 6 months or more. The shoulder will slowly improve up to 2 years after the surgery. Talk to your surgeon for more details.
