I had to have acromioplasty on both shoulders, following injuries and diagnosis of impingement syndrome. They tried arthroscopic first, but eventually had to go back in on each and do the open decompressions.
I don't know if it would help pre-op but...my P.T. told me to take a hand towel sized towel, fold it in thirds lengthwise, then roll it up and tape it. Place it in the armpit to hold the shoulder in optimal resting position. Support the lower part of the arm with a pillow while sitting, or place it in a pocket if standing (in place of a sling).
Might be worth a try to see if it gives you any relief pre-op.
