Good luck healing. I've had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders (2005 and 2009) and was on the trainer after about 2 weeks. My doc gave me the ok. He just told me to be careful about falling off.

Wow, wish I had gone to your doc. Only had my right one torn/repaired but I had my right arm in a sling that positioned my arm out from my body for 6 weeks! Lots of PT to recover from disuse. He attributed the tear to age and weakening of the muscle. I now include a series of resistance band routines to prevent a repeat.

I got a trainer after I had a brain hemorrhage. It was so nice to ride inside my warm house for about 2 months while I built up physical and mental strength to get back on my bike and brave the outdoors.
