The patient’s work situation is dependent very much on what they do for living. A lot of my patients work at a desk and in those cases, more often than not patients will return to work within a couple of weeks. Laborers – when I see workers comp patients, for instance, a lot of my workers comp patients are heavy duty laborers. They will be out of work at least 3 months because you can’t do heavy duty activities with the affected shoulder for at least 3 months after surgery.
