That is the exact thing I had my buddy do. He said he hated working one arm. The good thing is... he got to relearn how to lift. He had built up a ton of bad habits.
This guy had both shoulder completely blown out, at different times. One blew out was repaired the other blew out not long after. When I was helping him, he had just gotten his Labrum tightened around his left socket.

The key is to go slow and be patient. The scar tissue, as Steven said, needs to be broken down. That has to happen before gains are made. The wrist, like the shoulder, is needed in nearly every movement. Unless you an insane specimen of determination like Kyle Maynard.
