I actually was in kick ass shape...then I hurt my shoulder, couldn't do much because of pain/laziness, and had shoulder surgery to fix it. My arm is sling bound for 6 weeks with no lifting for 3 months. (I've rigged up a crane system to help with urinating, thanks for wondering)
I've been watching my diet (which is hard) but what can I do to stay fit with a shoulder that shoots lightening any time I think
About moving it?

That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

Climb lots and lots of stairs.

I'm going to be in almost exactly the same situation as you. I tore my pectoral tendon in my left shoulder and I'm having surgery this week. I'll be in a sling for six weeks, and then rehab for a few more. So no judo for like three months. I'm planning on just hitting the treadmill a lot. Walking at first, and then once I'm pain-free enough to take a little bouncing, I'll start jogging and running. I'm actually just looking at this as a chance to work on my cardio.

Maybe intervals on a cardio machine? Shoulder injuries for the lose.
I'd still suggest HIIT cardio with whatever works for you, though. Takes a lot less time, and the evidence is mounting for its benefits.

Don't do anything that makes it flare up.
Do all of your PT consistently.
The easing into treadmill work is solid advice for keeping your crane-needing gunt at bay, but you'll never outrun your fork.
If you have access to a suitable body of water (and assuming your incisions have healed) you could do some lower body workouts and even incorporate some shoulder PT pre/peri/post workout.
Good luck and don't let that become chronic.
Make sure your mind is free from the Cartesian pain model as well.
Pain science education improves outcomes.
