Good news:  I’ve had the shoulder checked out by a specialist, left shoulder is officially 25% weaker than the right and I go under the knife on Dec 6th to be sliced and diced.

Bad news: 3 weeks no driving, signed off work 3-6 weeks, 4 weeks before physio treatment can start, total recovery time estimated at 16 weeks, no time to do any pre season testing.

Good News: It should be okay in time for the first race of the season, and it will be stronger.
