Corrupted or no recovery...big deal?

Long story short...

I have the Verizon version of this tab and was running a custom rom for the past year. Tonight I flashed back to stock and rerooted. I thought the bootloader was still unlocked but apparently it's not. I tried to flash a recovery and failed. Tried to unlock bootloader and failed with the only image I could find to do so.

So I'm left with a device that gives me an "unsupported...take to Verizon" message when I try to boot into recovery. I can still boot into download and get into the OS that way though.

This device isn't that big a deal to me and I don't plan on flashing anything in the future. Is not having a workable recovery going to be a problem?

66 views and nobody can tell me whether I need to fix this or not? That's all I'm asking. If I'm not planning on flashing anything again do I need to worry about not having a working recovery?

If you are not intending on flashing any roms on it and if your tab is booting fine and working well on stock then you have no need to worry about it...
