How To Quickly Heal A Scar From A Surgery?
I want to ask the doctor, a month ago with a Giant tumor operation on the leg. .thank you.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Wound care needs to be adjusted to the condition of the wound. In general, if the doctor still recommends that the wound be covered with bandages, the bandages used need to be replaced periodically. If the wound is still wet, bandage replacement is recommended to be done every day or according to doctor's orders. Wound care can use 0.9% NaCl solution and sterile gauze available at the pharmacy. Clean the wound with 0.9% NaCl liquid, then dry with dry sterile gauze. If necessary, the doctor may also prescribe antibiotics in the form of ointments / creams / powder to be applied to the wound before being covered with new bandages. It is not recommended to use any ointment / cream / gel without doctor's advice.
Do not hesitate to consult again while conducting a control visit with the surgeon who is treating you. As a recommendation at home, you should always maintain personal hygiene, especially the injured area. The wound needs to be kept as clean and dry as possible. Rest the operated leg during the healing period. Avoid using alcohol when cleaning wounds because of the risk of causing pain and irritation.
