In brief: Ask your MD/trainer

Depending upon the stability and strength of the repair gained at the time of surgery, you would likely be in a sling for several weeks, followed by a progressive rehabilitation program. Over the initial 2-3 months you would progress from passive to active assisted and then active motion.
Once full active motion and reasonable strength is regained, a progressive throwing program would be allowed.

In brief: Rehab First

I would recommend a structured throwing progression program. You can review our preferred program here: http://www.
