In brief: Depends
It depends on many factors that you should go over in detail with a sports medicine or shoulder surgeon.
How loose your ligaments are, your activity level, age, previous dislocations, and athletic involvement all help to determine your risk of having additional pain or dislocations. You may or may not decide upon surgery after such a discussion.
