Anyone else had shoulder surgery?

Odd topic but here goes.

I had an anterior shoulder stabilisation 8 years ago which was successful. I went from at least one dislocation a month, to nothing since the spring of 2006 (this sticks in my mind as it was the one that prompted surgery, it hurt like hell). Since the op, I have a significant loss in range of movement, nothing that impedes daily living, but washing my hair can cause an issue, and opening jars. I can live with that.

However, I am 8, coming up 9 weeks pregnant, and I am wondering if the relaxin hormone is causing it to become loose. It feels like it used to before it would dislocate previously. I am worried that if it dislocates, it isn't going to be a straight forward re-set. I used to be able to get it back in myself after a while due to its laxity but now it is all tightened up and held there, I feel it will be a struggle, not to mention painful!

Has anyone else had this type of operation and had it dislocate at a later date?
