Effect Of Pen Placement On The Leg Due To Fracture During Pregnancy?
Hello dokk … I want to ask. Right now my feet are on the pen, while my position is getting pregnant, does it affect or not when I want to deliver ….. ???? The waist often feels pain even though the one attached to the thigh … Makasiihhh
Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
The danger of whether or not the pen installation depends on the area involved, the length of time since the installation of the pen, the severity of the fracture, and the pressure on the pen-mounted foot. In general, the leg pressure when the mother pushes is generally not too large so that it causes damage to the pen and the displacement of the bone that is connected by the pen. The pen itself is a tool that is strong enough to be used to hold the movement of the bone, so that if the pressure is not too excessive, the possibility of the pen is still strong to resist the movement of bone fractures.
However, to make sure it is necessary to know how wide the area of the installation of the pen, how heavy the bone damage that occurs, to determine whether or not spontaneous labor is performed on the condition attached to the pen. Regarding this, of course you should discuss further with your orthopedist and obstetrician. If it is indeed very risky, the obstetrician will consider other procedures such as cesarean section to maintain the safety of the area of the attached bone from worsening.
As for what you can do to support healing:
Limit physical activity to the area on which the pen is attached
Perform routine foot physiotherapy to maintain muscle strength
Avoid massaging the broken part
Avoid high-risk activities until they are completely healed, such as running and jumping.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
