What types of post-op restrictions do you forsee for this patient and what kind of rehab protocol do you recommend?

The procedure takes about one to one and a half hours with an equal stay in the recovery room. The patient is allowed to use the arm immediately for using the computer , feeding and driving. Reaching is allowed at six weeks and above shoulder activity with return to normal activites at ten to twelve weks. thanks sd martin
