Metropolitan Methodios of Boston on the Road to Recovery

September 20, 2023

BOSTON – His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios of Boston is currently on the path to recovery after being hospitalized for a few days recently at a Boston hospital due to a urinary tract infection (UTI). This infection, diagnosed early on, was successfully treated, and Metropolitan Methodios was discharged from the hospital. He has since been transferred to a Rehabilitation Center for a few days of physical therapy, as he has been experiencing pain in his lower back and leg for the past two months related to the sciatic nerve.

In an interview with The National Herald Metropolitan Methodios said, “thank God, everything went well with the urinary tract infection that troubled me for a few days. With the help of doctors and nursing staff, it was effectively and quickly treated.”

He further mentioned, “I have been discharged, and now I am in a good rehabilitation center, where I am undergoing physiotherapy for the issue with the sciatic nerve I experienced in recent weeks. This condition has at times caused unbearable pain in my lower back and leg, but it is also progressing well, and in a few days, God willing, I will be back to my duties.”

Metropolitan Methodios also expressed his gratitude, saying: “Thank you for your interest and communication. I want to thank all our priests and our community members for their prayers and well-wishes, which were my support during my time in the hospital.”
