Thanks so much for your response. I’m definitely going to copy off your questions. I had my shoulder replacement done there in 2012. At that time I had no idea what to ask. I wish I would have had a better idea what I was getting into. The surgery went fine. My sister-in-law works at Mayo and she looked at the incision the day after the surgery and said it was the cleanest incision she had ever seen. However I did therapy back home and I feel like I wasn’t made aware of what to expect. When I went back to Mayo a while later – not sure how long after – I saw a physical therapist at Mayo. I wish I had seen someone there after my surgery. I’ve questioned how my doctor here acted when I saw her. I’ll probably see her again for my annual physical and see how she is then.
Anyway, thanks again for your help. It’s so good to hear from someone whose been down this road before. I’ll let you know how it goes next week when I get to Mayo. I’m so glad my back is feeling better now. It should make the trip there easier.
