Finally got to see shoulder ortho today.
Have an AC (AcromioClavicular) avulsion (forced joint seperation), so my collarbone is pulled away and hanging further from the Scapula. Good news is its not the shoulder joint itself.
It's not so far enough separated that he wants to do any surgery :) but is far enough separated that its probably going to look a bit funny for the rest of my life, although theoretically shouldn't have any long term strength impacts.
Torn ligaments obviously, although probably none are completely severed.
Advised 3 more weeks in a sling, then probably another 2 months building strength back.
Doesn't sound good for GOW ultra in 2 weeks, knee and hip feel like i can probably start getting on the turbo next week, then do one test run before the GOW with the shoulder strapped to see how it is then.

All other wounds healing well, except for one bit on my elbow, which is starting to funkify a bit, think there's a large-ish piece of gravel in there.

Feels like a pretty unlucky year, given Cradle was cancelled, Coastal was postponed, and now this...
