In brief: Complicated

Shoulders are very complicated and even a minor injury can cause problems for extended period of time.
As long as you are slowly getting better and better, that's ok. If not, may need to see a different pt, work harder at it, or see your doctor again. Swimming is great for getting shoulders back in shape by improving range of motion, and strength of muscles.
