How To Deal With Shifting Bones And Severed Nerve Vessels?
I had a bone shifting, one nerve was broken. the impact of my injury was fatal or not and can my legs return to normal?
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A displaced or dislocated bone is an injury to a joint in which the bone moves in and out of its normal place. Caused by injury. A person's risk of injury increases in:
1. When exercising,
3. Children who are playing,
4. Advanced age,
Symptoms that appear are pain, swelling and difficulty moving in the dislocated joint. May be accompanied by damage to surrounding tissues, such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, ligaments and others.
Treatment is done by placing the bone back in place. You can do this with surgery and without surgery, depending on whether there is damage to the surrounding tissue. If there is damage to surrounding tissue, such as nerves, then restoring the displaced bone should be performed with surgery. After being returned, the bone is temporarily rested so that the repair process can take place quickly. In addition, it also aims to reduce pain.
I suggest that you should consult an orthopedic doctor if you haven't already. The doctor will check whether there is indeed a shift in your bones or your condition is due to other things. In addition, the doctor will also confirm whether there are broken bones and injury to the surrounding tissue, including the nerve tissue that you say. Your doctor may ask you to do an X-ray of the displaced bone if it hasn't and an MRI to see the condition of the nerves if needed. The doctor will treat you according to your disease condition.
However, if you have consulted an orthopedic doctor, you should return to control and ask whether surgery should not be done or what other measures are better to improve the condition and prevent complications.
The bone that has shifted will not be like before if it is not returned to its position. And the severed nerve vessels can be reconnected again and may also not be re-connected, depending on the location of the severed nerve, the severity of the damage and how long the damage has been. Although severed nerves can be reattached, it is likely that a condition like before exists and hopefully this will be for you. However, it can also leave sequelae, such as weakness in the muscles, numbness or tingling in the surrounding muscles.
So, thank you.
