I had a Bankart repair about 12 years ago due to my right shoulder that subluxed for years until it finally dislocated and stayed dislocated. It did a lot of damage to the labrum. It was before I started trying to ride horses again at a relatively advanced age, but after I started volunteering at a therapy center within walking distance from my house. So once I was feeling good, but before the Dr. said I could drive, I was the horse leader for the BO's clients, on the off side, of course.
I had to have open surgery because the damage was to extensive, so I had a longer recovery. The good part was that I have the assurance of the surgeon that it can't dislocate again.
