Does anyone have suggestions about using a full face mask with one arm in a sling for 6-8 weeks? No lifting, raising, anything. Will be having a total shoulder replacement soon. Live alone.

Depends on the mask, but you can usually do it by fastening three of the four connectors first, sticking your head in, and fastening the last one.

It's fiddly, but doable.

If you're not already in a sling, I'd urge you to start practicing everything one handed.
