How long will my work stop after the operation?

For a sedentary work (office, computer, telephone, relationship etc …) the stop can be short (a few days to 15 days the time of the cutaneous cicatrization) but is often brought back to 4-6 weeks if it is necessary for you to drive to work (no alternative).

For a moderately demanding work, count 2 and 3 months in order to be able to re-serve your limb correctly (especially above the head) in the absence of difficult sequences.
For heavy manual work the recovery is between 3 and 4 months in the absence of difficult consequences.
