How Long Have Casts Been In Teens?
Hello, I want to ask. Not long ago I had an accident, my left ear bone was broken. A bone and cast reposition have been made into my hand. One week after the cast, I came to the hospital for control, my doctor said, he said if teenagers would recover faster than their parents. He said that in adolescents, only 2-3 weeks can be removed, whereas in older people it can be 1-3 months. Is it true that in adolescents will heal faster? How much time do I need to get the cast off? Thank you very much.
Thank you for your question.
A cast is a tool used to help the process of healing broken bones, bone shifts by fixing the affected body parts. The healing process in bones can be influenced by several factors, including:
age, which is an important main factor in the process of bone healing because of the young age of the regeneration process of bone healing is still a good location of fractures, which is where if the broken location is not too many blood vessels it will cause a long healing process. the type of fracture, if the fracture is too heavy, the healing process takes quite a long time. When the healing process of bones in need of nutrients and high calcium to help the process of joining bones. However, if you do not eat nutritious and high calcium food, the healing process will take a long time of infection, if you do gyps and bone healing process follows bacterial infections, it will take a long time to heal because you have to treat the infection first. Some people if the condition of the broken bone is not severe and nutrients enter the body well, the fastest is about a month. But it can also take up to 2-3 months, it depends on the nutrients you get. There are several types of food that you can consume to help the bone healing process, including: processed milk such as cheese, fresh milk, yogurt, cork fish, tuna, milkfish, eggs, beans, green vegetables, beef, and chicken.
If there are signs such as severe pain on the part of the cast, it feels swollen, tingling, burning sensation, pale skin color. Then immediately check yourself into an orthopedic doctor who treated you before. Because it is a sign of complications.
