Things aren’t ignored on here.
You may have upper body restrictions, however, you can use the rest of your body to train.
What direction did the doctor give you?
How are you currently addressing it?
Seeing any improvements?

I stopped all overhead movements and have been doing some shoulder stability exersices and I feel better but still pain when I rotate my shoulder behind me and clicking on my shoulder especially on wall sides.
I am starting the physio next week,

Stability exercises will help.
Do you sleep on that side?
Is the front of your shoulder, pec or collar bone area tight?
This can pull the shoulder forward in the socket and you hit bone on bone earlier within the range of motion.
Have you addressed internal rotation and extension of the shoulder?

By the way all internal rotation hurts me

Not sleeping on that side is a great start.

Lacrosse ball to the pec and around the clavicle will address the front of the shoulder.
Looking to reduce inflammation is most likely why they said no upper body work.
Working up/downstream of the issue you’ll feed more slack to the area.
The episodes in the post above address internal rotation.

Thank u so much but u agree on stopping the upper work, in fact I didn’t stop I only do rowing and no pressings and working on lower trappes and mid back I feel ok but I think I lost the mobility in my shoulder

Movement patterns need to be corrected or the situation will continue to occur because the cause is still there.
Continuing movement with deviations in technique reinforce incorrect movement patterns.
Take a few steps back and work with some on correcting the positioning and movement patterns.
You may need to do less upper body focused work as you are correcting positioning and movement patterns. Correcting the cause of the situation is the only way it will resolve. There are several things this may include mobility, stability, technique work, drills etc.
Restoring shoulder full shoulder mobility is key as well.
Full shoulder mobility/range of motion without pain.
