Hello, thanks for the question.
Pen placement is a medical procedure performed by a bone surgeon indicated in cases of fractures or fractures, the aim of which is to mobilize the fracture during healing and to improve the position of the bone so that healing can be maximized as before the fracture occurred. This pen functions to restore and hold bones in their proper position so that during healing, bones can be connected like normal positions. The duration of healing and the end result of healing broken bones (for example, will be connected in full or not) in each person is different, this depends on the type of fracture, severity, location of the fracture, age, and individual health conditions. Healing in children is generally faster than adults, on average about 4 months after surgery, whereas in adults it is generally longer, can take months to years. This fracture healing process consists of 5 phases, namely:
Hematoma phase, blood vessels are torn and formed hematoma / blood buildup shortly after a fracture / fracture
The inflammatory phase, which occurs 8 hours after the fracture, the frozen hematoma is slowly reabsorbed and forms new capillaries
The callus formation phase, starting with the formation of new bone webs, occurs until the fourth week
The consolidation phase occurs for months until it can carry normal loads
Remodeling phase, the final stage of bone healing, and can last for years
If the bone healing has entered the consolidation stage, generally mild physical activity can be carried out as usual, but it should not be excessive to accelerate bone healing and prevent stiffness in muscles and joints. If healing has been done for a year and there are currently no disturbing complaints, light activity and not too much strain on broken bones, including swimming, can be done. Daily work or activities such as can still be done after the bone is declared healed and has been connected, but you should do regular control to the bone surgeon who is operating on you, the doctor will do a re-examination to assess the healing process and educate about what activities do's and don'ts to speed healing. Some things you can do to speed up the bone healing process include:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Sufficient fluid needs
Avoid activities that put strain on the bones
Increase your intake of vitamin D, vitamin K, calcium, and protein
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Thus, hopefully useful.
