Can Surgery Open Pen During Menstruation?
I experienced a broken leg in 2014, then put on a pen. and today I will open my pen, but I’m on my period. Can surgery be done when we menstruate?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In short, there is no prohibition on surgery during menstruation.
Pen placement is done to stabilize the position of broken or shifted bones so that during the recovery process, the bone remains in its original place. That way, the recovery process can run perfectly, and the two or more separate bones, can be reconnected as before.
The installation process and its extraction outline include anesthesia, opening of the area where the pen needs to be installed or need to be removed, stitching, and then recovering. The whole process is nothing that disturbs the reproductive system so it should not be a problem to continue to operate during menstruation.
Of course, if there are mixed instructions by your doctor, you have the right to ask questions to avoid misunderstanding. You have the right to ask until you are satisfied, but clearly, so far menstruation has never been a prohibition for someone to undergo surgery. So, hopefully answering your question.
