History of TB spondylitis. history of spinal surgery, bone loss, treatment of tuberculosis and pregnancy and complaints of pain felt by your wife, then this condition is an interrelated process. In TB patients will be at risk of causing complaints of pain in the spine, impaired motion function, sensory nerve complaints. Even with this pregnancy, your wife's body weight tends to lead to the front side because of the shift in the body axis where the burden and the development of the pregnancy triggers an increase in complaints of pain in the backbone.
Therefore, to reduce pain, it can be helped by several efforts:
1. use a body support to help hold the axis of the body that is leaning forward
2. using aids or brace to help move and hold the burden of the body forward
3. reduce body movements at risk of increasing complaints such as looking down, moving suddenly
4. streamlining body movements so as to reduce movements that do not trigger complaints
5. sitting or lying down or a comfortable position for your wife, using the back so that the load can be propped up well
6. consult with the medical rehabilitation department to help reduce pain complaints and assist the process of spinal recovery during this pregnancy
however, all of this you should still consult with the surgeon who is caring for your wife, because your doctor better understands your wife's condition during the treatment and treatment of tuberculosis and this pregnancy.
Without your surgeon's recommendation on a treatment plan that can be done, the treatment that will be attempted will have a risk of pain complaints and the postoperative bone recovery experienced by your wife.
Therefore, discuss it well with regard to all complaints that your wife feels, treatment must also be given by your doctor, because the doctor who treats your wife better understands the care process and clinical condition of your wife. If necessary, also discuss with a medical rehabilitation doctor, so that you and your family get additional information regarding this recovery.
