Thinking of returning after over a year out

In short I developed shoulder pain. Basically my left shoulder is worn (probably from lifting) and wil not get any better. Rotator cuff worn and weakening of the sub-scapularis. Basically I have to live with it. 
 
Tried Glucosamine, BPC-157 and have now accepted its there to stay as the surgeons refused to operate on it as its not affecting my ability to do everyday things, apart from the gym.
 
So I am untrained for well over a year. Recently started running my own TRT as the endocrinologist was a complete buffoon, despite me telling him everything about my gear use and PCT.
 
So Im sitting at 19.5 stone , lost a lot of good size and got fat so a lot of work to be done. Anyone came back from such a lengthy time out? Obviously breaking myself in gently will be key and being mentally strong when I realise I am weak as piss from no training and no AAS use (other than TRT)
 
Overhead lifting is out. I imagine every exercise will have a degree os discomfort, even squats due to reaching back! Could do hacks but I find them very tough. Smith machine will be my friend. Not sure whether to join the crappy commercial gym across the road while I recouperate or go straight to a decent one. Tempted to go for a hardcore gym but my feeble lifts would then hurt me even more! Im sure im still as strong as joe public. At least I hope so
 
Any words of wisdom/advice

    I had a year out, a tad more actually when I nearly lost my foot to an atlas stone mate. In a wheelchair for 6 months and then had to learn to walk again. I cam back surprisingly quickly once rehabbed and went form docs telling me I was going to lose my foot to lifting heavier than I ever did in the past.
     
    All I will say is set new goals and chip away at them slowly, the body remembers the past and getting back to where you were is easier than breaking new ground...above all else remain positive :)

    Im hoping muscle memory will be my friend although I have not trained naturally for a long time. Not even considering gear til I assess the pain after a few months. Might just have to settle for light training so gear would be pointless. Id probably lose interest anyway as I don't want to be going through the motions

    had 7 years off after surgery and was back into it pretty quick , if you need surgery though I would push for it , I know its not affecting you everyday but at some point it will , catching balls or opening doors became a problem for me after a while , training will likely only accelerate this process and then your back to square one all over again , would pay to see a private consultant and see what they advise.

    Just get at it, you’ll work it out in the way.

    This. You're overthinking this. Focus on getting back into any gym then adjust as you go along.
