I will be getting all my GT enjoyment from the couch and GTtalk for probably 4 months. The left shoulder went out to lunch and did not invite me. I am going to have 2 tendons reattached on April 11. This mean no use of left arm for 3 months and from there Dr will let me know where I stand.

I will be relying on all GTtalk members to keep me on top of things so I can enjoy GT's precariously through my laptop. It is great to be able to read about all of the experiences posted here. The pics and videos are great too. I also love to post comments and help with problems when I can.

Sorry to hear this. We'll do our best to keep you occupied and informed. That can't be fun, I need my left hand to hit the caps button.

Getting old....... Or should I just say "High mileage" Just flat out sucks. Can't even operate something with power steering I guess. Any grandkids who could steer for you and you finger the throttle?? :smilewink:

Geno, wishing you the speediest recovery possible.

From someone who has had a shoulder injury, Listen to your Doctor and do what he tells you. Even if you feel like you're going stir crazy, stick with it. It's amazing what you can learn to do one handed. :D

Sorry to hear that Geno. I completely understand, I injured my left arm & lost all use. 5 months later I am just getting some use back out of my arm; enough to drive a GT but not enough to run the walk behinds.
GTtalk played a Huge part in keeping my mind busy, I'm sure it will be a big help for you as well.
Have patience, and follow the doc's orders to the 'T'. I wish you a full & speedy recovery.
