After undergoing medical procedures such as surgery, there are several complications that may be found such as pain in the post-operative area, discomfort due to stitches, bleeding in the post-surgical suture area, removal of the surgical suture, infection in the post-operative wound. In the process of healing the wound will pass through several phases such as the inflammatory phase, fibroblastic phase, and maturation phase.
Recovery of the wound requires different time depending on the size and depth of the wound, the number of stitches needed, the condition of the wound that is dry and clean, controls wound cleansing according to schedule, does not scratch the injured area, uses clothes that are too tight, especially underwear and pants, keep the body clean and the wound area to prevent infection.
It is recommended to consult a doctor related to surgery for further examination and management. Examination related to the condition of the postoperative wound is necessary and appropriate treatment is carried out in accordance with the condition of the wound. Avoid taking self medication without doctor's instructions, keeping the wound condition clean and dry. If the post-operative wound experiences pain, swelling, redness, discharge such as pus or blood, loose stitches appear, immediately consult your doctor for further treatment.
