Torn Rotator Cuff

I tore my right rotator cuff in a skiing fall on May 12th. How long should I wear a sling? When is it BEST to start exercises? I know it needs rest to heal but also am concerned about "use it or lose it". Can't get in to Orthopedic until June 6 and a PT after that so wanting to know what is best to do in the mean time for the best possible recovery. Thank you.
