What if you don’t operate, how come the medicine can recover and be able to walk again … Thank you.
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Cracks or broken bones is not something that can be underestimated. The reason is, if not corrected properly, it can cause mobility problems, broken fragments can injure the surrounding tissue, and also can interfere cosmetics if there is a visible deformation.
Decisions about the actions of course the doctor based on the results of physical examination and patient support. In the condition of minor fractures, it may be managed without surgery, for example by placing a cast. However, in more severe conditions, or positions that are not possible, sometimes the cast cannot help correct a fracture, and must go through a surgical procedure.
Thus, the surgery decision must have been carefully thought out by the doctor who treated your mother, and the possibility that if not done can occur complications as mentioned above (impaired mobility, or bone fragments that injure the surrounding tissue).
To increase the stability of your heart and the mother of the actions to be taken, you should consult and ask in detail the purpose of the surgery and complications that can occur in your mother from the treating doctor. Detailed explanation he is expected to provide more explanation to your mother and family, and can help make decisions more stable actions.
As for what your mother should do:
Avoid activities using broken parts
Cold compresses the painful part
Elevate the injured leg while sleeping
Consumption of foods containing calcium and vitamin D to support the healing process of bones
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
