Leg Bones Are Not Connected Properly After A Fracture.?
Good afternoon, doc. I am Fauzan, I am 13 years old. I was in an accident a year ago. I have a broken leg shin. Right part. I can walk.
Have you seen a doctor after a broken bone? What treatment did you get? Broken bones should be examined by an orthopedic doctor so that conditions can be ascertained and can be given more appropriate treatment. The doctor will do an x-ray and CT scan if necessary. Treatment of fractures can be done by surgery, installation of special bandages, and casts.
If the fracture does not get the right treatment, the bone can indeed connect itself, but very risky complications occur, such as:
Nonunion / bone failed to connect
Malunion / bone connects incorrectly or imperfectly so that bones become bent, deformed, and interfere with movement
Delayed union is delayed
If you feel a disturbance in movement or there is a change in the bone, I strongly recommend that you consult a orthopedic doctor directly so that you can be sure of the condition of your bones so that you can be given more optimal treatment. If there is a malunion, the doctor can consider the option of surgery by breaking the bone back and then connecting the bone according to the anatomical structure it should be. Avoid other treatments without the advice of a doctor who checks directly yes.
Hope it helps you,
