Kidney Stone Surgery Wounds Still Produce Festering Fluid?
Hello .. I want to ask .. My father has just done kidney stone surgery but after 3 weeks of surgery, the wound is still stitching out the liquid smells like urine mixed with pus and then I want to change the bandage, there is actually a piece of stone in the bandage of the scar … How right? Is it not dangerous like that if the fluid still comes out like urine .. Please answer .. Thanks in advance
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. After undergoing kidney stone surgery, the recovery period required may vary depending on the type of surgery and the person's clinical condition. Those who have a condition of high blood sugar or diabetes, for example, may recover longer than those without the disease, and those who are easier may be faster than the elderly.
Even so, the wound should not release liquid seams, whatever the shape. Fluid discharge is a sign that there may be loose stitches, or there are parts of the skin that lack a lot of stitches, or there is a certain infection in the operation, maybe due to lack of hygiene.
Our advice, you should immediately bring your father back to the doctor who operated on him for control and evaluation. On first hand, your father's doctor will know whether the condition is actually normal or not, and if it isn't normal, what treatment should be taken.
Meanwhile, keep the parts dry quickly. If there is gauze or bandage covering it, replace it immediately with a new one when it is wet, and keep it clean. So, hopefully answering your question.
