I’ve been suffering with my Shoulder since the crash at the Silverstone Endurance round back in May.  After finally being referred to a specialist the verdict is that I’ve a partial thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon of the rotator cuff with their potentially being a concurrent labral tear.

Shoulderjoint Woby to undergo Shoulder surgery

I’ll be going in for surgery on Monday 6th December and will have to have the shoulder strapped for at least 3 weeks. It’ll then be a race against time to make sure I’m fit for the first Endurance and Michelin Power cup race of the season Mid March.

Although this puts into disarray all the planned pre-season testing and instructing the improved rotation and strength in the tendons will more than make up for it.

I’m not alone… it appears to be fashionable to have shoulder surgery at the moment!
