A replacement no. If it is anything like recovering from frozen shoulder though, it took me a full year to get back to normal.

I tore my labrum in 2002 had it fixed but never right.  Now I have worn a flat spot on the humeral head and have limited range of motion above the shoulder. Much worse than two torn ACLs.

Rotator cuff surgery is common and usually effective.  Long recovery, though.

If you haven't already discussed it with Dr. Carlos Woodward, you should. He's fixed both of mine (not replacements though). Left side was similar to your description. Back to excellent range of motion and minimal pain, but it took longer than I anticipated. Haven't had time to work much on the strength aspect, but I don't feel like it will be limited when I finally do. Best of luck to ya.

lots of good surgeons here in Orlando , if you need a name just ask . If your cuff is totally blown a reverse total is the way to go

Very difficult decision, my day to day activities are ok, the big factor is I can't surf much more then an hour and then it's stiff for days.

Saw Dr. Brent Stephens in Melbourne, says he has done hundreds of reverse shoulder replacements.  It is a crap shot no matter what.
