My situation was different to yours but it was still shoulder surgery. When I fell off the bike the big ball of bone that fits into the shoulder socket disintegrated on impact. They got it back together the best way that they could but it was a career-changing/ending injury (I'm a mechanic). Surgeon told me that my working days were over. I was out of work for seven months & the only reason that I'm working today is because a new position arose in the company that I work for & as it didn't involve any manual labour as such they offered me the position & obviously I grabbed the opportunity. I'm in constant pain but I'm a big young fella & I can handle it. If you must undergo the surgery I would say two things to you based on my own experience:
1. You MUST allow yourself the time to heal properly. I was off bikes for nine months & I just had to suck it up (June 2013 to March 2014)
2. Be aware that no matter how well you heal, you will always be vulnerable to a re-occurrence or aggravation of the injury. I changed the oil & filter on my Varadero one day last March. This involved me lying on the ground (a no-no for me) to get to the filter. I wasn't aware of any problem at the time but I was in agonising pain for three months afterwards. It was a lesson learned the hard way.

Rotator Cuff problems to both shoulders in the last few years. Curtailed my biking considerably. Injections of cortosone onto the joint did the trick,Was ok for last 12 month or so until herself decided we should visit Mayo. And I did the driving.. in a cage. Absolutely crippled after it.
Last time the only cure was no driving of either four or two wheeled vehicles. No alternative. Difficult when you mostly drive for work but are otherwise healthy.
