How To Deal With An Elbow That Cannot Be Bent Due To A Dislocation?
I want to ask. One year ago I had an accident and dislocated my elbow. The hospital suggested surgery but BPJS could not bear it because this was an accident. Until now, my elbow can’t be bent because the X-ray on my elbow has grown new flesh. What should I do. Thank you

We understand your complaints and concerns. Disruption of the bone due to trauma often causes dislocation and invoice of the bone (fracture)
Dislocations occur in joints where the bones forming the joint experience a shift in position, causing limitations in movement. Dislocation management should be done as best as possible so that the displaced bone can return to its original location and return to normal function.
Regarding your complaint, I suggest checking with your nearest orthopedic surgeon. Because at this time you have a malfunctioning where your elbow cannot be bent properly as normal function of the joints of the body and there are indications of other disorders in the form of tissue growing in your joints. It must be known exactly what tissue grows in the area, whether a lump that leads to a tumor or other bone abnormality. Other investigations such as CT scan and MRI may be needed to evaluate possible abnormalities.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to have your elbow checked by a doctor and surgery if possible to restore normal function to your dislocated elbow. Your surgeon will provide medical advice regarding the appropriate treatment for your current condition.
You can do the following things to reduce complaints that you experience, namely:
Try to position the elbow as normal as possible Avoid strenuous activities because the dislocation is prone to recurrent worsening If pain, pain medication can be considered for consumption.
