Complete Shoulder Replacement for a Musician

Diagnosed with a very damaged left shoulder. I could go in to all the problems but suffice it to say that three OS have recommended total replacement.
I play drums and percussion for a living. My main concern is the recovery time, i.e. how long until I can play my instrument.
Can anyone give me an estimate as to how long until one can move the arm, not above the head, but out from the body?
Thanks,
