Banged Head To Pieces In An Accident?
Met yesterday afternoon I had a motorbike accident and then my head hit my left side until it caused a tear, about 3-4cm, and already to the clinic the wound had been treated and sewn up, I want to ask if there is a risk in the head due to a hard impact, because my left head is still pain and vision in the left eye like a shadow, and like to feel dizzy, please help
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A hard blow to the head causing a tear that must be sewn up can have serious effects, it can also be limited to external wounds. If you have seen a doctor, it is stated that you do not have a serious condition, and have also received adequate treatment, then there is probably nothing you need to worry about.
As for the pain in the head, dizziness, and visual disturbances that you are experiencing at this time can be a natural result of inflammation after injury. In mild conditions, this complaint will get better on its own within a few days after the injury.
However, if you feel that this complaint does not improve within 3 days after the injury, or other complaints arise, such as severe headache, nausea, vomiting, fever, stiff neck, impaired coordination and balance, impaired movement of control, seizures, and decreased consciousness. , then you should not take it for granted. Immediately consult yourself to the doctor. It is feared that this condition occurs as a result of bleeding inside the head which causes stress on the brain and other structures, including those that play a role in regulating vision and balance. It could also, this condition occurs due to hydrocephalus (fluid buildup in the head), skull fracture, injury to the muscles or nerves of the eyeball, injury to the ear, and so on. Further tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, MRI, etc. may be done by the doctor to identify the possibility of a more severe head injury. Also, the doctor may refer you to a neurologist for further treatment.
In the meantime, first do the following:
Take medications given by the doctor regularly (after suturing, doctors usually prescribe some pain relievers) Get plenty of rest Compress the sore head area using warm compresses Limit first to stare at gadgets and do other activities that trigger dizziness You get heavier Eat and drink enough Don't worry or excessive stress Hope it helps ya ..
