How Is The Knee Treated After Surgery Due To A Ruptured Kneecap?
Hello, r nWant to ask, right? My mother had surgery around the beginning of April, the operation was on her knee, fell from a motorcycle and broke her kneecap, how do I take care of it so that it can quickly recover? And guess how long it will take to recover, thank you
The knee joint consists of several parts such as the bones of the lower leg (fibula and tibia), thighbone (femur), and skeleton (patella), ligaments, muscles and other parts. If there is a collision or a hard impact there can be injuries to the parts of the joint, one of which is a fracture. For a broken shell bone to be sure, a good physical examination and also supporting examinations such as X-rays are performed.
After it is known that there is a fracture or fracture, treatment will be carried out according to the conditions, one of which is surgery. Usually after surgery it takes a long time, especially at an advanced age. For this reason, it is necessary to limit strenuous activities that can make healing last longer. Apart from following the recommendations and treatment given after surgery, it is also necessary to take rest and physical rehabilitation therapy so that you can return to your activities gradually. Each individual has varying times to be able to return to activities which usually takes 3-6 months to be able to move after surgery depending on the severity and condition experienced.
Try to perform physiotherapy, control the orthopedic doctor regularly and also consume nutritional intake that is rich in protein, calcium and vitamins and minerals to help the healing process.
