    Never had one but worked otho for 2.5 years. 1. It's gonna hurt but it shoudn't be unbearable 2. Take the pain meds, knobody gets a reward for not taking them. 3. tell the surgeon, not ask, tell him you want a cryocuff , it's an ice pack thing that goes abound your shoulder that is connected to a cooler with ice water in it, keeps the swelling and pain down. 4. yeah 2-4 weeks you'll be out of work, probably never do the butterfly again though.
