Hello doctor, I have a younger brother who is 7 years old and this afternoon he had a fractured thigh bone, will there be a prolonged effect, like I have seen a person with one-sided leg and after I asked him he answered that when he was a child he had fractured a thighbone, I am afraid of my sister I also experienced the same thing, how is it true.? And how is the treatment for his broken leg because the area where I live is remote so it is not possible to see a specialist, thanks. 🙂
Broken bones or in medical terms are called fractures, usually caused by a hard impact, usually a fall, accident, collision with a hard object. Fractures may occur closed or no bone is protruding, and there may also be open fractures or visible bony protruding. To determine whether or not a fracture is necessary, direct physical examination and supporting examinations are necessary to confirm it, namely by doing X-rays. If indeed there is a fracture, treatment depends on the type of fracture that occurred, whether the fracture is only fractured or broken into two parts, or into several parts, etc. For treatment, you should follow the orthopedic doctor's recommendations based on the results of the examination and x-rays. Improper handling can create a risk of:
