So I'm sure I'll have a healthy recovery time, and lots of PT work for awhile, but I'm really hoping that I can get back to playing by the end of summer..... I haven't even seen the ortho' yet, but I will by the end of the week and there is no question in my mind that surgery is in the cards for me...I've been avoiding this for a long time. At this point, with the amount of pain I'm in and the fact that my left arm is essentially useless, I'd just like to get it done as soon as possible.

Any idea of what I can expect for a recovery and getting back to playing time given it's my "off" shoulder?
the key to start off with is whether it's a partial or full tear? quite a difference in recovery time
