Tips For De-Stressing Your Home

Hi everyone. By special request, I am resharing this post containing tips for de-stressing your home. Having a comfortable place to live is important for everyone, especially those recuperating from a total knee replacement (tkr). Here is an article I found on Dr. Andrew’s Weil website (http://www.drweil.com) that I found interesting and wanted to share. Enjoy!

************

6 Ways to De-Stress Your Home

Your home – whether big, small, or somewhere in between – should be your sanctuary, a place where stress is left at the door and your soul is nurtured. For a more comforting environment, gradually implement the following changes into your home:

  1. Bring the outdoors in. Green plants, cut flowers and blooming bulbs, or pieces of wood, rocks and other organic elements can create a feeling of nature indoors.

  2. Paint a room to suggest a mood. For instance, blue and green promote a relaxed feeling and may be good choices for the bedroom, while warm colors (maroon, coral, burgundy) suggest a cozy environment and may be inviting in a family room.

  3. Surround your senses with beauty. Artwork, fragrance, smooth textures and calming sounds all provide a pleasant environment in which to relax.

  4. Set aside a room or area for peace and calm. A place for spiritual reflection and meditation can provide shelter from noise and distraction.

  5. Clean out clutter. A low-maintenance home is refreshing after a day of hectic meetings, errands and chores. Fewer items can mean less frustration.

  6. Create an atmosphere of love. Display handmade or meaningful gifts from loved ones and photos of family and friends.

Do You Use Ice As A Pain Reliever?

Hi everyone. Since many of you have asked about if I use ice as a pain reliever…Here is my insight based on personal experience after undergoing a total knee replacement: Read on….

Since my insurance did not cover the pain med prescription, I relied on aspirin as my only chemical pain reliever. Yes, aspirin after a total knee replacement. I needed additional relief and fast.  Ice to the rescue. It is all-natural, cheap, and convenient. In fact, it can be found in everyone’s freezer.

 I was really surprised  when my tkr doctor mentioned that the best way to alleviate pain was with ice.  Plain and simple.    Tumeric is another choice, but that is another article.

Ice has only two side effects – that I can see.   One is the fact it melts.  Plus, if you are not careful, your skin can freeze if left on too long.  Those two drawbacks aside, it’s great having pain decreased quickly instead of waiting for pills to kick in.

I was given one of those ice bags that you see in movies being used for headaches (or hangovers). They are also given as “take homes” after hospitalization. Look in your local pharmacy for other variety.  It’s not a very big bag.

Other choices include:

  • large gel pack.  Store in freezer. These seem to keep cold for about an hour. Nice. Plus, they fit along the back of my knee very nicely.
  • battery-operated, 12-hour ice pack.  This is huge and reminds me of a torture contraption. One of my friends lent it to me, but it doesn’t have a battery. Hmm.
  • small gel pack. Perfect size for isolated knee areas.
  • plastic, Ziploc type bag. Cheap and easy.   Fill with ice, close, and wrap with a towel.  The towel absorbs the melting ice and keeps me dry.
  • bag of frozen peas, blueberries, or other similar foods.

Well, my ice has melted. Gotta go.

Update On Dental Work After A TKR (Total Knee Replacement)

Hi everyone. Many of you have asked me about protocol for dental work after a tkr. So…here is an update.

Original article: Prior to my total knee replacement, I needed to attend a pre-op total knee replacement class. It was very informative and I was glad it was provided. Well, while going through this class, I received some particularly surprising and interesting information about dental work after a tkr.

It turns out that for two years after a tkr, patients need to take antibiotics every time they are planning on having a dental appointment. It doesn’t matter what type of dental work is being done, either. It can be a gentle cleaning or a fun-filled root canal. Whatever it is, antibiotics are needed.

Sometimes when dental work is done, blood is drawn. (You know, like when you’re cleaning your teeth too vigorously and they start to bleed? Or….when the dental professional inadvertently pokes your gums?)

This can increase the likelihood of an infection occurring. So, to be safe, the medical profession requires antibiotics be taken.

My dentist believes this is old school thinking, which in time will not be necessary. Regardless, I still need to follow these instructions for the time being.

I bring this up since I am going to the dentist tomorrow and needed to pick up my antibiotics today. Instructions state I take two capsules one hour prior to appointment.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

UPDATE: 10 years post-tkr, some people are required to still take antibiotics before any dental work. Others are not. It all depends on the individuals overall health situation and is up the the doctor’s discretion. As real life examples: I, personally, am not required to take any antibiotics prior to dental visits. Nice. An elderly friend in poor health is required to do so.  Be sure to discuss this topic with both your doctor and dentist prior to any procedure. Always better to be safe than sorry.

Tips For How Healthy Eating Speeds the TKR Recuperation Process

Hi everyone. It’s common knowledge that eating healthy can help everyone. However, this is doubly important for us living with a total knee replacement (tkr) and throughout our trying global times. Healthy eating speeds the tkr recuperation process. This is because it strengthens our immune system. Here are some tips for how healthy eating speeds the tkr recuperation process…

Tips are for quick, healthy eating that can be prepared at home:

Mix some fresh herbs with freshly squeezed juice for a low calorie dressing.

Squeeze an orange over your salad greens.

Spread some natural peanut or almond butter on an apple.

Enjoy a sandwich of tuna and mustard on wholegrain bread. Add lettuce & tomato, if desired.

Have some fresh fruit mixed with plain yogurt.

Spread some hummus on either pita bread, fresh veggies, or an English muffin.

For creamed soup, substitute pureed tofu for heavy cream.

All of these have worked well for me, and I am confident they’d work well for others. Enjoy!

Why It Is Important To Make Exercise A Priority..

Hi everyone! We probably all have days when we do not feel like exercising. It seems like a hassle, takes too much time, etc., etc., Here’s a piece of news that can make exercising seem less daunting….I believe it’s all based on aversive training.  Read more below to find out why it is important to make exercise a priority. You’re welcome…

Envision yourself in the hospital due to inactivity. That doesn’t seem like fun, does it? Picture yourself hooked up to a breathing device where you cannot talk, even if you wanted to.

Imagine yourself having one medical test after another, being poked with needles so many times you dread even seeing the medical professional.

Imagine yourself lacking so much energy, it takes everything to simply blink your eyes (it does happen..).

Picture an IV in your arm. Whether it is for nourishment or medication, this IV is playing an essential role in restoring/assisting your health.

Imagine having to urinate through a catheter for any reason associated with poor health or medical condition. This catheter needs to be changed, cleaned/sanitized, and reinserted. It’s an arduous, time-consuming process that takes a toll on anyone’s nerves and confidence.

Imagine yourself being put on a very restricted diet to bring your weight back in line. Weight gain is far too common when exercise does not play a key role in your lifestyle.

Or…picture yourself being given so many medications you cannot possibly start your day without popping pills.

How does all that sound? It’s very negative. That’s the purpose of this article. But, believe me. It does happen. Your body requires exercise to operate properly, and, it’s simply amazing to hear how many people believe exercise is too time consuming…or whatever the excuse. And, the longer you go without exercising to maintain your body in decent condition, the more situations negatively accumulate.

Of course, there will be a day or two when it is okay to just sit back and let your muscles recuperate from a previous workout. There is nothing harmful about taking small breaks.

Get out and exercise. Stop making excuses. Find an enjoyable way to do it. Choose from a number of activities to lower boredom levels.
* Do some isometrics while watching television. How easy is that??!! Just tighten your muscles. I have written about that in other posts on this site.

*Do gardening or another favorite passion that gets you moving..
* Take a gentle yoga class for mild, yet effective, stretching. Chair yoga is excellent for gentle moving.
* Lift some milk gallons filled with water, as a dumb bell alternative.
* Find a friend to exercise with, join a class, go to your local pool, buy an exercise video or Wii Fit (I think that’s what it’s called…).

The list of possibilities goes on.  No matter what the method is..

...EXERCISE. It’s fun!! This is especially true after having a total knee replacement..or tkr.

On Second Thought…TKR Recuperation

Hi everyone. Since some of you have contacted me about the frustrations with tkr recuperation, here is a reprint of an older post from 2008. On second thought…tkr recuperation insight:

The decrease in my knee swelling is more than likely a culmination of a variety of things – all taking 6.5 months to see any results.   (Yes, I know that in proper writing composition – numbers under ten are to be written out. I’m gutsy. 🙂 )

Recuperation from a total knee replacement is time consuming and involves a variety of exercises.   Just don’t give up.  Stay with it.  I’ve known people who still can’t walk downstairs and it’s been a year after their tkr…total knee replacement.  They simply do not do any exercises to increase their flexibility.   What’s the sense in that?

Changing Leg Lengths After A TKR

Hi everyone. Due to popular requests, I am resharing this post about my changing leg lengths after a tkr.  Seems some of you are experiencing the same thing. Here goes…

Something strange has been happening lately. As I mentioned in previous blog posts, I am back to wearing a shoe lift on my tkr leg. This started three months ago, about a year after my tkr.  Wearing the shoe lift is no big deal to me since I have been wearing one for 45 years.

However, and this is my dilemma now, my leg length changes. Some days I will notice I need more lift on my tkr leg, while on other days…I need less. It is totally bizarre to me. (Prior to my tkr, my leg length never changed on a daily basis).

The only thing that I attribute the discrepancy to is the fact some days my bionic knee is more swollen than on other days. Perhaps this swelling affects how straight my total knee replacement leg gets. I.e. less swelling means more leg length (more straightened) and vice versa. I don’t know.

When I asked a clinic doctor to measure my legs so I could determine the shoe length thickness I needed…I received a prescription to have my leg measured. WHAT??!!  True story….

Could be much worse. I’m not complaining just puzzled. I do wear an internal lift (like an insole) on days I notice I need more than what my external lift provides. No biggie…

Hopefully this can help someone else who is going through the same thing. Have you experienced this dilemma?

Walking Victoria, BC, A Total Knee Replacement, and Hockey

Hi everyone. I was recently asked to reprint an experience I had written about before the pandemic hit. It could equally apply to today…post pandemic. Here it is…Walking Victoria, BC, a total knee replacement, and hockey. Enjoy….

It’s beautiful. Holiday lights are up everywhere. Greenery is plentiful. Landscaping is immaculate. Waterfront has a great walkway. The Empress is stunning.  Butchart Gardens is spectacular.

Great place for exercise. Victoria BC is a wonderful walking community. To say I walked a lot, is an understatement. Thank the powers that be for icing. My bionic knee was very swollen.  This is how I’ll tie in a total knee replacement with this blog post.

Downtown has shop diversity. There is something for everyone here.

Bakeries abound. That’s all I’ll say about that. 🙂 (I forgot to bring my stretch pants).

HOCKEY IS EVERYWHERE!!! (Well, maybe not everywhere…but more than the area I live in). In the restaurant I went to…a game was on a projection screen. Two other games were on smaller televisions. Hockey fans were enjoying their sport. Nice. 🙂

Sports store. The sports store owner and I had a great conversation about hockey. Woohoo!! He even told me some history about the Detroit Red Wings that I didn’t know. Cool…

Buses. A gentleman stepped aboard while sporting a Vancouver Canucks jersey. He just happened to sit in the seat behind me. “So, you like the Canucks, eh?” I asked. “Yep,” he replied. I pointed to my Red Wings jacket…”Detroit Red Wings,” I answered proudly and knowingly. With that, he shook his head, look disgusted, and said “Huh”. I needed to change my course if I was going to get a decent hockey conversation going.

You know, Luongo is so much fun to watch. He makes his position look so easy. It’s too bad he’s out with that groin injury,” I said. That was the beginning of a wonderful conversation for the remaining of the 20 minute bus trip.

As he got up to leave, I said….”Hey, maybe we’ll see each other at a Canucks game. I like watching your team lose.” He ignored me. At least I was entertained. 🙂 

Victoria, BC is a wonderful place to experience any time of the year, especially during the holidays.

10 Natural Ways to Prepare for Your Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Hi everyone! We all know the importance of keeping everything as natural as possible during the entire total knee replacement process. Here is a guest post written by a tkr patient, Tamara Lujan, a 27-year practitioner of herbal and holistic healing. Below find 10 natural ways to prepare for total knee replacement surgery.

Nine weeks ago, at age 53, I had total knee replacement surgery. Some health issues and past surgeries placed me at higher risk for infection, skin tissue breakdown & blood clots. I decided to use natural treatments, dietary changes and herbs, to help ensure an easier recovery; reduce the risks of infection and inflammation; and help prevent blood clots.

As a holistic health practitioner I want people to be proactive in their health and total knee replacement surgery is no exception. I personally started by researching doctors and hospitals, finding information on everything from a doctors success rates to hospital infection percentages. I also began working on having my body in the best possible health prior to surgery.

1. Eliminate alcohol – Alcohol increases the risks of complications and slows down the recovery process.

2. Water – Water boosts your immune system, flushes toxins and helps keep you regular. I recommended about 90 ounces a day for women and 120 ounces for men.

3. Turmeric Extract – Turmeric is a powerhouse for fighting inflammation. Turmeric extract is an easy way to get the dosage you need.

4. Nettle Leaf Infusion – Dried Nettle leaves are a wonderful source of nutrients and are high in essential minerals including iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium. Nettle infusion is a miracle working when it comes to inflammation. It has worked wonders on my fibromyalgia and arthritis. It is approved by the German Commission E for reducing inflammation.

5. Nettle Seed Extract – Fighting chronic pain is exhausting. Nettle seed helps build your energy in the short term. Take up to 1 week prior to surgery.

6. Shiitake Mushrooms – at least 2 x a week (great in Miso soup!). This mushroom helps prevent thrombosis. Discontinue using 2 weeks prior to surgery.

7. Seaweed – 2 x a week. I put this in my Miso, on salads or simply to snack on. Helps prevent inflammation. Discontinue using 2 weeks prior to surgery.

8. Homeopathic Arnica Montana 30x – Used to reduce bruising, swelling and joint pain. Discontinue use 1 week prior to surgery.

9. QUERCETIN with BROMELAIN – to help build immune system and for reducing inflammation. Speak with your doctor as to recommendation on use beyond 2 weeks prior to surgery.

10. Improve your muscles and body systems – Try yoga, massage and acupuncture. These can help limber you up, reduce inflammation, and keep the lymphatic and blood system flowing.

My knee surgery went great. Based on the damage to my knee and a pre-op ROM of just 68 degrees, everyone was very surprised at my recovery and that in just 7 weeks post-op, I was at a 100 degree ROM!

*Please let your doctor and pharmacist know of any herbal and supplements you are taking.

Nausea & A TKR

Hi everyone. Nausea and a tkr isn’t an exciting topic or one that you want to read at the dinner table. Still..it needs to be discussed since some of you have asked me about it….Looks like it is time for me to re-share a popular post I wrote about my own experience….enjoy…:)

Of the many comments I’ve received lately (and, thank you for all of them!), a common theme concerns nausea after tkr and during recuperation. “What is your experience?” I’ve been asked? So, here it is…

I had nausea during two periods after my tkr. The first was caused by the anesthesia while I was recuperating in the hospital. I didn’t eat much while in the hospital.

The only other episode occurred when I took the “pain meds” (I use parentheses since the meds did not handle the pain). The nausea was mild, but still noticeable. I remember that episode as being two weeks. Then, I just started aspirin.

After those two periods, no problem. The only other time I get nauseous nowadays is when I see someone eat nacho chips covered with that orange-colored liquid stuff called cheese.

Or, come to think about, when I see that orange stuff on any food. I’m suddenly not feeling well. I need to clear my mind.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Sharing The Appreciation Philosophy During Difficult Times..

Hi everyone! Here are some interesting facts to ponder during those days when it seems everything is going wrong. We all have those days, especially during our troubling and difficult times.  So, here I am resharing the Appreciation Philosophy during difficult times. Unknown author. If you know the author, kindly inform me so I can give appropriate credit. Thank you…Enjoy and contemplate….

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness …..
you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation …you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.   

If you can attend a church meeting …even outdoors…without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death… you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof 
overhead, and a place to sleep… you are richer than 75 percent of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a
dish someplace…. you are among the top 8 percent of the world’s wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married…….you are very rare.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly
thankful…… you are blessed, because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them, or even touch them on the shoulder….. you are blessed, because you can offer healing touch. During our troubling and difficult times, Zoom meetings and other methods provide virtual means.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in
that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than more than two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
