Break Time For A Broken Toe
Doc, I want to ask … about the sick certificate whether for patients who have broken toe need to rest for up to 3 months to not work ??
Hello Suzana, thank you for the question.
Trauma to the toe that causes a break can occur by a variety of mechanisms such as falling, falling over, being crushed, kicking something hard, and so on. After undergoing surgery, the toe fracture usually undergoes a healing process for 4-6 weeks, but of course it can take longer depending on the severity and possible complications.
Therefore, to help the healing process become faster, try a broken finger that doesn't move so you have to rest, especially in the early weeks after surgery. Consumption of high protein foods such as eggs, chicken, tofu, tempeh to accelerate wound healing and regular consumption of drugs according to doctor's instructions. Don't forget to do the control according to the specified time.
Thank you, hope that helps.
