Knee Replacement – Surgery Day

Dr. Norton's Knee Replacement Surgery

The day of the surgery my Personal Assistant Alli picked me up at 5:30. We made it to the surgery center on time. I filled out a few more forms and met the physician’s assistant that would be working with the surgeon, Dr Swank.  She asked a few more questions, and the anesthesiologist came in and he asked a few questions, and then they asked me to put on the gown and take off my clothes. I had already asked if I could wear my own panties and bra. I was not able to wear my own panties, because they said you can have accidents during surgery… Yuck! So, I wore this really cute little diaper thingy. But they did let me wear my bra as it has no metal or fasteners, it’s like a skimpy sports bra only pretty. 

I had asked about a nerve block as a patient of mine who is an anesthesiologist told me to insist on one. As it turns out, my doctor does nerve blocks and the anesthesiologist assured me that I would be getting a complete nerve block. It’s supposed to make recovery much easier.

After I was properly dressed, they came back in and started an IV and to be honest I don’t remember much after that at all. The next thing I remember is being at home in the basement. I vaguely remember changing into my pajamas while Alli waited outside the door and that’s it!  🙂 I woke up hours later and my daughter-in-law Brandi texted to say she was on her way. I felt pretty good at that point, but I really couldn’t remember much if anything of the surgery. 

I used the walker when I first got home and found it to be a bit awkward. I decided to try walking without it before Brandy arrived and discovered that I was able to walk quite well without it. Brandi says when she got there I was running around, LOL!  I wouldn’t call it running around but I was doing well without the walker.

We had a nice dinner, she fixed leftover lamb leg roast that I had made the day before and Mediterranean mixed vegetables. We caught up and talked for a couple of hours. She went upstairs to study for her boards and I got some Bing cherries and watched TV for a little while, still feeling pretty good! I got a good night’s sleep and woke up feeling well rested. Little bit more pain than the day before as the nerve block had worn off completely but it was nothing I couldn’t handle.

The physical therapist arrived at 10 and she was ecstatic about how well I was doing. She called me a superstar and she asked me if I was a dancer, LOL!  So, the physical therapy session went very well. I was able to do all the exercises and according to the physical therapist was doing them at a rate that one might expect weeks after surgery. In fact, it went so well that she said I could probably go up and down steps. We tried it and she was correct I could! She also thought that I could probably drive as I already had enough strength in my right foot and enough range of motion in my leg. Not planning on doing that just yet though.  

I opted not to take the oxycodone except for the night of the surgery. I took one that night but haven’t taken any more of them.  I have a good friend that had a double knee replacement who ended up getting addicted to oxycodone after his surgery. It took him almost 2 years to overcome the addiction. I just think it’s a dangerous medication. I do have a couple of medications that are anti-inflammatories and also pain relievers. And they seem to be effective in keeping the pain manageable.

Here are some images of my area I set up in the basement and of my knee

I’ll keep you posted on how things are going!

Tricks for Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

Tricks-Peeling-Hard-Boiled-Eggs

If anyone would like to share their secret for peeling hard boiled eggs, I would love to know. I have some theories and I’m willing to share them of course, but I really think it depends on the egg! I’ve tried using old eggs and new eggs, and sometimes the older the better, other times, not so much.

Quick and Easy Mushroom Soup Recipe

Mushroom Soup Recipe

I decided to make some mushroom soup with some chicken broth left over from a chicken that I baked. Since I’m doing keto and because I have all of my groceries delivered I was low on vegetables so the best I could do was cream of mushroom soup.  I didn’t even have an onion 🙁 but decided to have a go at it anyway.

The Whole Hog: What Are the Advantages of Pork Over Other Animal Protein? [Series]

We recently started offering cooking classes in Cincinnati to patients that are in treatment for obesity, and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder. During the classes, participants pick up basic cooking tips for preparing “clean” luscious tasting dishes, dressing, marinades, desserts and soups.

In our most recent class we had a great discussion about pork. We talked about everything from the health benefits of pork to how to find a reputable source for purchasing the healthiest pork. This series of blog articles will provide you with all the information we covered in class!

Cuts of Pork

What Are the Advantages of Pork Over Other Animal Protein?

Sustainably raised  pork is cheaper than chicken, lamb or beef. Also, unless you find the right grass-fed beef, such as U.S. Wellness Meats, it can taste gamey and can be tough. My experience with local beef growers is that the meat was too tough and too gamey when the cows were 100% grass-fed.  With pigs, the flavor of the meat is enhanced when they eat what they were naturally designed to eat.

Renae Norton is a clinical psychologist, specializing in the outpatient treatment of obesity and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder (BED) and the Director of The Norton Center for Eating Disorders and Obesity in Cincinnati, Ohio.

News You Can Use: November 3-10 2013

News You Can Use

“As an Eating Disorder Professional, I know that many of my clients that are in treatment for Anorexia, Bulimia, Bulimarexia, Binge Eating Disorder or Obesity are overwhelmed by all the information in the news about our health. In hopes of relieving some of the stress this can inflict on both my patients and readers, I’ve highlighted some of the weekly health news that was of particular interest to all of us at The Norton Center for Eating Disorders and Obesity. From my eating disorder and obesity treatment center in Cincinnati, here is your weekly news update for the week of November 3-10 2013!”

Letting Go of the Idealized Eating Disorder Recovery – If you hear some in the eating disorder community talk about recovery, you could be forgiven for thinking that they were trying to get you to buy a timeshare at a resort. Recovery, they say, is where you love yourself. You love your body. You accept your imperfections. Your life is good, so good. You’ve gotten to the root of your disorder. And you are never, ever, NEVER going to relapse. You are IN RECOVERY and you are here to stay. Learn More.

What You Should Know About  Diabetes and Bulimia – Women with type 1 diabetes are twice as likely to develop an eating disorder than other women without diabetes. Women who struggle with both conditions typically experience the same symptoms as women who only suffer from an eating disorder. Learn More.

The Real Reason Girls are Reaching Puberty Earlier – Many girls in the U.S. may be entering puberty at younger ages now than in previous decades, and obesity appears to be the major factor contributing to this shift, a new study finds. Learn More.

Demand for Grass-Fed Beef it on the Rise –  Even though it can cost twice as much as conventional beef, demand is becoming higher than supply for meat from cows that eat a natural diet. Learn More.

Eating Disorders More Common in Males than Realized –  Parents and doctors assume eating disorders very rarely affect males. However, a study of 5,527 teenage males from across the U.S. challenges this belief. Boston Children’s Hospital researchers found 17.9 percent of adolescent boys were extremely concerned about their weight and physique. These boys were more likely to start engaging in risky behaviors, including drug use and frequent binge drinking. Learn More.

Solving Pediatric Obesity Problem in Rural Communities –  Using telemedicine to unite clinicians and provide health education for them — and by extension, their patients — is an effective way to manage childhood obesity in remote areas. For these communities, which often have limited access to pediatric subspecialists, having a HEALTH-COP can make all the difference. Learn More.

The Eating Disorder Pro Podcast – The Benefits of Grass-fed Meat and Dairy

US Wellness Meats - John WoodJoin us on Tuesday June 25  at 7:00 pm EST,  as we talk with John Wood, the founder of US Wellness Meats. We’re excited to talk with him about The Benefits of Grassfed Meat and Dairy. We’ll be taking your questions LIVE at 646-378-0494. You can tune in HERE.

“John Wood is a life-long resident of Lewis County Missouri.  Following a Farm Operations B.S. degree at Iowa State University in 1975, John returned back to a 5th generation family farm and was involved in day to day management of conventional Northeast Missouri family farm from 1975 to 2000.

John married in 1983 and added two daughters and a son into the rural community. All have prospered on a stubborn work ethic that has preserved the rural way of life for centuries.

In February of 2000, John and three partners created a pasture to consumer online grass-fed meat business on farms in Northeast Missouri and Western Illinois.  Grassland Beef, LLC dba US Wellness Meats was organized officially on September 1, 2000.  Marketing commenced on November 7, 2000, and continues today nationwide and into several foreign countries.  Grass-fed beef, lamb, bison, butter, cheese, free range poultry, pastured ABF pork, organic snacks, wild-caught seafood, raw honey and gourmet rabbit compose the core business model.  US Wellness Meats has been featured by professional athletes, chefs, doctors, trainers, authors and the likes of Fox News in recent years.

During the past 38 years, John has held leadership positions with Lewis County Extension, Lewis County Farm Bureau, Missouri Young Farmers, a three year stint on the Missouri Soil and Water Commission during the mid-1990’s, and is a founding member & chairman of Missouri Wind Resources, LLC.

It is exciting to be in an industry that supports animal agriculture, treats animals with respect, provides entry positions for young farmers with low overhead, is good for the land and plant community, good for the rural community and improves health and wellness for our consumers.”

Tonight’s Podcast – Eating Disorders and Insurance Coverage with Lawyer Lisa Kantor

Tune into tonight’s podcast (at 7:30 pm ET) as I talk with Lisa Kantor, a Los Angeles lawyer and partner in Kantor & Kantor LLP. Lisa Kantor represents people denied health benefits for treatment of both physical and mental illnesses. Most recently, Ms. Kantor has focused her efforts litigating insurance company denials of coverage for residential treatment of eating disorders. Kantor & Kantor is the only law firm in the country with a distinct eating disorder practice staffed with lawyers and other professionals experienced in the specific needs of people who have been denied benefits for eating disorder treatment.

In 2007, she won the first published eating disorder decision in California in which the court applied the state’s mental health parity law to beneficiaries who sought treatment outside California. In August 2012, she won the first federal court ruling that determined health plans must pay for all medically necessary treatment for mental illnesses, including residential treatment.

Ms. Kantor was named a Top Woman Lawyer by the Los Angeles Daily Journal and an Attorney of the Year by the San Francisco Recorder. She received a “Special Recognition” award from the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals Foundation and a California Women Lawyers’ Woman of Distinction Award.

TONIGHT’S show starts at 7:30 pm ET! You can listen live  HERE!
