Shoulder Surgery – One Year Later

One year ago on April 4, I (Jody) had rotator cuff surgery in our mission’s hospital here in Quito. I’m still improving in my range of motion and freedom from pain and I’m happy I had the surgery.

I blogged quite a bit about the surgery. You can find those blogs by choosing the tag “surgery” if you’re interested in reviewing my adventure.

In my last surgery blog three months after the surgery, I mentioned I was thinking about returning to the surgeon and asking for more physical therapy. I did have that appointment and he recommended I do less exercises and give myself more time to heal. That’s what I did, and it seems to have turned out fine.

Shortly after my surgery, our hospital changed from a non-profit hospital to a for-profit hospital. It still has strong ties with Reach Beyond, our mission organization, and still continues the same Christian mission it has for the last 60-plus years.
