Shoulder dislocation after SLAP

I am in the military and three years ago had surgery on my shoulder to repair two torn ligaments after a training accident. My shoulder healed up fine and i was able to hit the gym again but was always careful when doing any heavy lifting. Just recently while on a short deployement i dislocated it for the first time since the surgery. Thanks to following steady work out regiment it doesnt hurt as bad but i cant go to my medical department for fear of them kicking me out of my unit and possibly medically seperating me from the navy. Is there was a workout that focus's on strengthening the shoulder muscles with minimal risk of doing more harm then good? Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated. In an independent sudy of athletes Swede-O ankle braces were chosen as most comfortable.
