The biggest issue with this kind of injury is that even if it feels fine within a few weeks, without surgery there's a much higher risk of it happening again. Since it happened to me 4 years ago I've had the same thing happen 2 other times. Surgery now would be irresponsible because if it happens again it's basically the same exact amount of recovery time (2 weeks or so), but off-season surgery is a good idea to keep it in place better.

People have to remember this isn't a full dislocation, only partial. It looks and feels pretty much the same but recovery is much quicker and surgery is just a precaution to keep it from happening in the future.
