Shoulder Injury- Rotator Cuff & Biceps Can't Post

 I had rotator cuff and biceps surgery, two screws now
in the shoulder.
Wondered how it wold be affected by free falling?
Anyone with this type of injury might be able to give
me some insight.

Dr, said if I hurt it again, might not be able to repair
I had two tears in the rotator cuff, one quiet large,
and a large tear in the right biceps muscle.

Any info wolld be most helpful.

Freefalling shouldn't be too much of an issue, but you might have some discomfort and fatigue from flying your canopy. Also, which arm is it? If it's the right you also may notice a little pain when deploying. My advice would be to get a good strengthening program, not just for the shoulder joint itself but also for the muscles around the shoulder blade since they help to stabilize the shoulder joint.
