Excerpt #2

Having recently undergone a total knee replacement, I have had my fill of ‘pain meds’. None work that well. There is one method, however, that is surprisingly great. It is all-natural, cheap, and convenient. In fact, it can be found in everyone’s freezer.

This effective pain reliever is known as ice. Plain and simple ice. I was really surprised when the doctor mentioned that the best way to alleviate pain was with ice. And to think, all this time I thought they liked promoting pharmaceutical drugs. I like the icing gig. All the other pain meds had awful side effects like nausea and breathing difficulties. 🙁

I don’t know of any side effects with ice. The only drawback is the fact that it melts. Go figure. Here are some ways to use ice that I’ve come across and work well for a total knee replacement:

  • Large gel pack. Frozen solid and then used, these stay cold for about an hour.
  • Ice bag. Simply fill these up, screw on the top and use. The ice seems to melt quickly in the one I was given. Plus, I keep envisioning Curly wearing his after he pulled his tooth. 🙂
  • Small gel pack. These are great for smaller, isolated areas.
  • Battery-operated ice pack. One of my friends lent me this and it reminds me of a torture contraption. Plus, it doesn’t have a battery with it. I wonder if this is considered durable medical equipment.? Hmm.
  • Ziploc-type plastic bag. Cheap and easy. Simply fill up the bag, close, and wrap a towel around it. If I have the energy, I like to crush the ice. It makes for a smoother whatever. The towel absorbs the melting ice. The towel also keeps my clothes dry. Cool.

My ice is melting. Gotta go.
