Overcoming Injuries From Appendicitis Scars That Do Not Heal For 3 Months
Good afternoon doc, I want to ask why my operating wound hasn’t healed in a long time u0026sup2; Yes, I used surgery on January 15th, until now I still haven’t recovered. the appendectomy used to be said the doctor was chronic and his intestines had ruptured. When I had the intestine in my lab there was tuberculosis but I hadn’t checked up the doc. I focused on the former surgery. How is the solution so that the doctor can get better? thank you

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, what is the condition of the wound that has not healed that you mean? Does the wound still look wet, open, or is it bleeding or festering? Are there other symptoms that you feel such as abdominal pain, fever, or other symptoms?
In general, surgical wounds will close, dry, and heal by themselves in 6-8 weeks if treated properly. If indeed until now your wound still looks wet, open, or even still bleeding or festering, then you should immediately take control back to your surgeon for further examination. Examination should be done immediately and should not be postponed again if your wound is still bleeding, festering, odorous discharge from the wound, or if you experience severe abdominal pain around the surgical scar. You will always be advised to do post-operative control and this control must be done, one of which is to monitor the healing of your scars. If your skin is sewn with thread that cannot be absorbed, the suture thread must also be removed after the wound closes.
If you see that your surgical wound is actually dry and has closed and what hasn't been lost is just the scar, then you don't need to worry too much. The scars will not disappear, they will only fade (but it can take years). In some people, surgical scars can actually be increasingly arising into hypertrophic scars or keloids. If indeed you want to get rid of these scars, you should do a doctor's examination.
You should also do further tests for tuberculosis in your intestines. If left with tuberculosis bacteria will further damage your intestine and potentially cause various other complications for you.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
