In brief: Shoulder return

All depends on procedure and underlying diagnosis.
..Rotator cuff repair may take at least 6 months from surgery; labral repair 4-5 months; routine bursectomy and decompression 8 weeks.

In brief: Diagnosis?

It's important to first start with the diagnosis and the reasons you are contemplating having a shoulder operation.
For any repairs we perform, we ask patients to avoid active upright use of the surgical arm for 12 weeks after surgery. Patients are asked get their motion back in a passive (help with other hand only), then active assist and active but in the supine position to protect repairs.
