I haven't gone through this myself, but dad did 10-12 years ago. Can't compare his damage to yours, but it was a torn rotor cuff in his right shoulder.

I know he didn't stop driving for weeks. A few years prior to the rotor cuff he was in an accident that badly messed up his right leg and knee. He used his left leg to operate brake and his right hand with a pole to operate the gas pedal. He regained use of the leg before the shoulder got messed up and the leg injury actually led to the shoulder injury.

I mention all of that to say, where there is a will there is a way and, if it's an automatic, it wouldn't be too difficult to drive with left hand/arm only. Unless of course you have a bad reaction to the medication, in which case play it safe and please don't drive.

Good luck with the surgery and wish you a speedy recovery!
