Deformity In The Leg After A Fracture?
I want to ask, I’m in a cast for 3 months without surgery and the results of the bone x-ray are connected but the fine lines of the fracture are still very thin like threads not as perfect as broken bones. Is the end result really like that? But I was allowed to walk for a month after that I got an X-ray. But my feet have deformed but not very much. Do I have long legs? The thing is, I don’t see riview of people with broken legs in one side.

The time limit for broken bones to connect perfectly is 8 months. If after 8 months there is still a broken line of bone X-rays, it is medically called a nonunion or the fracture fails to fuse. The average person who has broken bones, bones will connect perfectly in 6 months. This time can be faster or slower, because many factors affect it, namely the patient's age, severity of fractures, broken bones, nutritional intake and systemic diseases suffered by patients. For that, you don't need to worry too much. Inadequate your nutritional intake by eating healthy and nutritious foods. Prioritize consuming foods that contain calcium, such as anchovies and milk. Don't forget to allow yourself to be exposed to the morning sun.
Deformity or deformity or size of the leg post-trauma can occur if there is a dislocation (the head of the bone out of position) or if between the edges and ends of bone fractures do not coalesce or do not meet. In this case it is necessary to check directly by your doctor. For this reason, routine control so that doctors can evaluate the treatment that has been undertaken. Perform activities or exercises that your doctor has allowed. To avoid shifting broken bones due to activities beyond his ability.
Thus hopefully useful.
