My wife has has both shoulders RC repaired in the past. On one side the screw they put in to hold the tendons has worked itself free. Now she goes around bragging she has a screw loose. More than one in my opinion. She also blew out the tip of her clavicle falling off a motorcycle at 5 mph. That surgery didnt take properly, so the just took the screws out all together and let it heal as is. I personally have never had any kind of major surgery like that. I bet recovery is going to suck, if you are used to doing things right handed. It sucks for me, because i am ambidextrous and am so used to using 2 hands most of the time.
