Can Pen Placement Be Done On A Fracture That Has Been 10 Years?
Good afternoon HealthReplies.com, I want to consult whether a thigh bone surgery can be done, if it has been through the process for 10 years.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Late or untreated bone fractures with appropriate medical procedures pose a risk of malformed bones (mal-union) or failure of joint (non-union). Furthermore, complications can occur in the tissue around the bone, such as injury to nerve fibers that can trigger pain. The longer the medical treatment is postponed, the higher the risk of complications and the risk of complications in the future.
To find out whether surgery can be done to treat a fracture that has been left (neglected) for 10 years, it is necessary to first do a direct evaluation by a doctor. Therefore, you are advised to check yourself directly to an orthopedic specialist. The doctor will perform a systematic history, a comprehensive physical examination, and supporting examinations according to the indications obtained, for example: X-rays.
