Defer. Once you're out of the brace then your arm will probably have seized up and it will be tough to get it moving. Running could be an issue. ( I had a stabilisation operation and couldn't run for 2 weeks after the brace came off.)
I hope you've got a good story from the accident to make it all worthwhile
Like CB I had a stabilisation operation after frequent dislocations of my right shoulder. The muscles in my arm had withered in the brace, once the brace came off it took me (what seemed like) an age to get to the stage where I could lift my arm up level with my shoulder. I didn’t run in those days but imagine it would have been a nightmare. So don’t set your hopes on a quick comeback, sorry to be the bringer of doom.
