In brief: Depends

It will depend on why you had the surgery, what was done to correct your problem and the therapy you had following the surgery.
If the purpose of the surgery was to restore function, perhaps it was a success and the limit to your range of motion was removed. Therapy will help much. Work hard, ask lots of quesitons and follow through.
