Causes Numbness Of The Fingers And Tingling After The Wrist Infection?
Hello, I want to ask, I had a work accident, my left wrist was cut off by a chain saw and hurt quite deeply, the clinic doctor who gave first aid said all the nerves and pulses, as well as the broken tendon muscle was cut off. After being sewn the hose the day my hand was swollen and swollen and it turned out that the infection was finally operated on by my orthopedic doctor. After a month and the stitches and the wound was dry my fingers felt numb, tingling and numb but I could still move them. My question is whether my fingers can return to normal and if possible, it usually takes time how long to recover … ?? thank you very much doctor.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also sorry for your condition. But unfortunately, we cannot answer your question in detail. This is because your recovery will depend on the severity, speed of treatment, and your body's ability to recover. Not to mention you declare that you have an infection, whose presence alone can prolong healing.
In addition, if only one component is damaged, for example you have a broken bone, then you can imagine the duration of healing, which is an average of 3 months if not too severe and all recovery processes are going well. But in your case, we don't know whether the recovery is enough, especially not only bones, but tendons, nerves, blood vessels, and various other supporting structures.
For that, the one who can answer your question more accurately is actually the doctor who is treating you. Our advice, if you are still scheduled for control, you can ask at the time, when is your recovery target according to your doctor's assessment so far. It's just that if your nerve is badly damaged, we need to say that the nerve is the most difficult part of the body and takes the longest to heal, even in a matter of years. So although later other organs such as bones, muscles, tendons and skin have recovered, it could be that the nerves have not completely healed.
In response to this, you simply obey your doctor's advice to avoid various restrictions during recovery, control routines, increase consumption of foods containing vitamin B as well as protein, and may take vitamin B supplements according to the rules of use because these vitamins are beneficial to the nerves. So, hopefully answering your question.
