In brief: Not common

With current techniques, regardless of the approach used for your surgery, the possiblity of dislocation or loosening of components is very low.
The chance of either event is less than 1% in most recent research. The device you have has a long track record of good results, and is not likely to dislocate or loosen if you take good care of it. Consult with your surgeon about recommended activities.

In brief: Should already know

The best answer is since you already had the surgery , would you not have asked this question before hand and probably was explained in the consent form you filled out.
If not ask the physician who did the surgery.
