Low hot water pressure in one shower only

Yes, I'd be fixing the screwdriver stop. Should be able to buy a kit for it. What about the hot water at the lav?

Oh, just for giggles- remove the aerator on the lav faucet and see if it helps the flow any.

Are you referring to the valve under the bathroom sink? I haven't touched that, but the hot water there comes out full blast.

It is possible that the damaged valve on the right is the 'HOT'---this is a condo and back to back mixers are common--with one having the feed lines reversed--

Run the water and see which pipe is hot---right or left.
