Can Knee Fluid Be Used After 8 Months Of Injury?
Dr whether it can still be sucked up knee fluid that has been injured for 8 months? Thank you…
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically, there is indeed a liquid lubricant between the joints, which works to facilitate joint movement. Precisely getting older, this joint fluid is getting smaller, and contributes to the occurrence of friction and pain in the joints.
When associated with injury, the process of injury can cause the presence of other fluid in the joints, can be in the form of blood, and can be pus. This fluid should be taken, because it is not the place it should be, and can actually trigger infection. Regarding your question, if the liquid is still there, it should theoretically be taken, either by injection or by surgery. But after 8 months have passed, it needs to be confirmed first that the liquid is still there. Because the fluid could have been absorbed, while the swelling or pain that you feel is caused by something else.
However, our advice is that you should check with your orthopedist first so you can find out more about his condition through digging in-depth history, physical examination, and support such as CT scans and x-rays. Only after that, can be determined the best diagnosis and treatment of your condition.
Meanwhile, avoid physical activity that is too heavy, if there is swelling or painful compresses with warm compresses and consumption of over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the rules of use listed, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
