How Long Does The Post-operative Healing Process Remove Infection In The Legs?
good night ,, my grandfather had an infection in his leg ,, the doctor suggested to do the surgical removal of the infection, because the infection is quite severe ,, finally his doctor recommends for the operation of planting meat, my question MEAT PLANTS AND WHAT IS HIS RISK ?? thank you ,, good night …
The operation of implanting meat or a meat graft or can be called a flap is a procedure of moving a tissue unit from the donor site to the recipient site by also maintaining the blood flow system. This procedure can be done in the case of defects that cause the tendons and bones exposed, for example due to an infection that requires the infection area to be cleaned or removed as in the case of your grandfather.
The postoperative healing process, whether it is surgery to clean the area of infection or a meat graft operation, can vary from patient to patient. The duration of healing can be influenced by age, postoperative wound care, the presence or absence of post-operative infection, the extent of the wound, the intake of nutrients, and the patient's own condition (for example the presence or absence of certain diseases that can affect wound healing such as diabetes, blood clots). The healing process can last for several weeks to several months.
Related to risk, every medical procedure certainly has possible risks, including meat transplant surgery. Some risks that can occur include postoperative infections, pain, bleeding, failure to close the defect, and scarring.
I suggest that you discuss directly with the doctor who treats your grandfather about the procedures, risks, and post-operative care because the doctor is more knowledgeable about your grandfather's condition. Postoperative risk can be minimized with adequate postoperative wound care.
Hope it helps you,
