Figured I give this a bump to tell about my experience and possibly hear from others.
My shoulder history: Almost three years ago, I fell on my outstretched arm skiing, where initial labrum damage took place and I subluxed my shoulder. I believe only three subluxations took place over the next five months, but then I began to sublux my shoulder very frequently leading to frequent dislocations. I had a bankart/slap repair in June 2013. I was advised not to ski aggressively during the 13-14 ski season, unfortunately I began to dislocate my shoulder doing other things. Interestingly enough, I had zero problems this past season while skiing aggressively until the end of March, where I took a hard fall mtn biking, I then dislocated my shoulder very easily skiing. A MRI revealed damage to my (continued) anterior glenoid and a chronic hill-sachs deformation.
I had the latarjet surgery three months ago and my recovery is going very well. My shoulder was sore for the first few days, but really no pain because of the percocet. I was in a sling for the first three weeks at all times, and six weeks in public.
PT started with range of motion exercises, and besides very light strengthening exercises, the focus was on regaining r.o.m. About two weeks ago I effectively reached the limits of my r.o.m., which is recommended to be 90% of my original r.o.m. so my arm can't get in potential dislocation areas. Now I am continuing to strengthen my shoulder/arm and I am on the path to get on the trampoline in three months and ski unrestricted in four months.
The procedure is pretty cool: http://orthopedics.about.com/od/surgicalprocedure1/qt/latarjet.htm
Hit me up if you have any questions, I will post some updates later.
