Can I Work Hard After Lipoma Surgery?
“Good night I want to ask, I have been doing lipoma removal surgery since 1 week ago and on Monday I start doing activities like working, now my job is to lift weights at the factory, is it OK or not?
Good morning Septian, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Whether or not you can lift a heavy object after surgery, it all depends on the location of the wound and also how your wound is currently.
If the wound is not located in the parts that play an important role in the process of lifting heavy objects (such as the hands, feet, or abdomen), removal of heavy objects is still permitted, but it is still advisable to limit the burden. However, if it is located in an important part, consider whether your wound is dry and completely closed, because if it is not yet completely closed, the risk is to cause the wound to open again and need more time for the healing process.
If you are in doubt, you may consult further about your surgical scar directly to the doctor so that it can be ascertained whether it is possible for you to use lifting heavy objects or not.
I hope this helps.
