I got boo, boo
well I dislocated my shoulder AGAIN today, ****!!!
And what I was wondering, is besides glucosamine is there any other things I can take to help heal this up? and is there any spesific exercises I can do? I think I will be out of the gym for a while on this one but is there any thing steroids or other that will help? and no, I wont use deca , deca dont like me.
I know this might be the wrong forum but it is kinda drug related and we do get lots of traffic here.

My Orthopedist told me after I dislocated my shoulder the second time, that if I did it again that it would either require corrective surgury or that it could pop out at any time it was stressed.
Cortisone shot and a slap on the ass was all I got. Oh, he then told me no shoulder stress for 10 weeks minimum. Sorry.

Rotator cuff strengthining will help, some. My shoulder still hurts and I popped it the first and second time over 10 years ago.
Work on your legs & abs.

If you don't want to go through surgery (I've had two and wouldn't want to do it either) stay up on the cuff excercises like a mad man and really focus on stability excercises. You need to keep all the muscles surrounding the humeral head strong and balanced. For stability, try going into a push up position and while keeping in the plank position as much as possible push up your scapula. You can do this with bands as well. In that form, it will be more of a punch. Try push ups on balls, wobble boards etc. The point is that you need to prepare your shoulder for unexpected movement so that it does not just pop out. Your success in avoiding surgery will be directly related to your dedication to your rehab and your activity level. PM me if you have any more specific questions regarding shoulders. Good luck!
Oh yea, make sure you stay away from any pushes overhead, military etc. Those are no bueno.

Right, I forgot to mention that the doc told me specifically "no weight over your head". Strengthen the cuff, do both sides.
Hope you make a speedy recovery.

Chondroitin greatly augments the effect of Glucosamine. MSM is also quite good. Few products combine the three, but G & C are often together, then you can add MSM.
You find an array of exercises online, or actually go to your Doc for a good physical therapist.
If this is the second time in a short span and you'd consider surgery, I'd get it examined to see if surgery would fix it.
