it really depends on what part of the joint capsule was torn: superior, inferior, anterior, or posterior. if you truly dislocated your shoulder, you now have a permanent area of instability in your shoulder and will dislocate again the next time the head of your humerus moves too far in the direction of that instability. it won't be too fun dislocating during your swim. consult a sports med md or other specialist, and take them with you while swimming because if you dislocate, you will need them to pop the joint back in the socket.
