Welcome to the forum, lovely to meet you, waiting for a shoulder replacement, there have been a few of these, here is the link to the thread mentioned by DreamDaisy
There’s a link about going into hospital too which might have some useful suggestions, here you go
If you can think of anything else just let us know!
My best advice is to find out which exercises you will be given to do afterwards and start doing them now, it will help get those muscles strong in advance!

There are few accounts of first-hand experience available so I started posting a blow-by-blow account of my reverse shoulder replacement of just over six weeks ago. It's on the Living with Arthritis forum and I shall be delighted if you find it helpful.
If you are having a standard replacement I can point you to a very useful and detailed online blog. (The internet can be confusing as procedures in the USA seem to take a different path at recovery stage so you need to browse with care.)
If you have specific questions don't hesitate to post them on the Living with Arthritis thread and I'll do my best to respond.
