Shoulder stiffening up after partial implant

Patient : I shattered my shoulder back in July. The surgeon couldn't do a compelte repair so he had to put in a partial replacement. My insurance only covered 30 PT sessions which I completed and faithfully do my home exercise routine for it. I have the over the door pulley and bands, plus a dowel. With the snow and colder weather coming with winter, is there anything else I can do to keep it from getting stiff? It's so painful when it stiffens up and I wake up every half hour or so from the pain at night.
