Frequent Pain In The Legs After Fracture Surgery?
My mother, 6 years ago, had an accident when she fell down the stairs and was operated on, a pen was installed in a Saudi Arabian hospital, the pen model that was installed was also thin from the knee to the ankle. Well, my employer said that the pen is a thin leather model. He said that you don’t have to take it off, it’s okay, but it’s been a few years since my mother was tired, her feet immediately became hot and stiff, I couldn’t move them.. Now I want to ask if this pen is not in place are there any other side effects? And if for example, if you open it, what is the operation method from the tip of the knee to the ankle too, because when it was installed, it was only torn a little from the knee and torn a little more from the ankle.. Thank you, I’m waiting for the explanation..
Removing the pen that has been attached for a long time can of course be done according to the needs and conditions of the patient. You should consult directly with an orthopedic surgeon for a more complete explanation.
It should also be noted that, if your legs are hot, stiff when you're tired, then the possible causes could be:
Previous pen installation
Inflammatory diseases of the joints, arthritis
Muscle stiffness due to previous activities
Stiffness in the legs and feet does not necessarily come from the pen that is still attached. But you can have it checked first to find out the exact cause.
Avoid strenuous activities that involve the limbs temporarily
Light massage on the legs can help relieve the stiffness kaku
Do light exercise like jogging
So, hopefully it can help you
