Hello Doctor nI want to ask Doctor nI finished surgery on the bone of the right toe and that part of the finger was the doctor’s second finger nI want to ask how long it will take for postoperative bone recovery Doctor? Because I usually like to do sports like basketball and swimming
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. When a person experiences a fracture, recovery will depend on various things, including:
Number of broken bones
Body regeneration ability
Types of fractures
Other medical conditions that can be aggravating
Distance from being given help
Specifically, the one who can best answer your question is only the orthopedist who treats you because he or she knows best about your condition from the start, the progress of the operation and the improvement of your condition each time you control. But overall, fractures can usually return to normal in a span of 3-6 months, or it could be more depending on the characteristics of the fracture earlier.
Meanwhile, our advice is that you should first avoid basketball because it uses your feet as a support. To swim, it should not be a problem because the body's weight is supported by water. But make sure again with the doctor who treats you. And to speed up healing, you should increase your consumption of protein-rich foods such as milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, beef, tofu and tempeh, and control regularly according to a schedule. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
