Overcoming Surgical Scars That Re-open?
Hello, I had an appendectomy on January 31, 2018, 2 days after it came out a lot of pus from the drain hole to make it easier for the doctor to open the suture in the stomach 1 as a way to get the pus out. R nThen the scar of the pus wouldn’t close and grow The meat from the inside is sure to open the next day, it will open many times until May (the doctor said there was dirt that made the wound not close) r finally in May, the doctor was operated again in that place to clean the dirt that was there but 2 weeks then how come it’s open again until now 9 June I want to ask why is this and what is the solution what is the solution, I need to consult another doctor
From the information you have conveyed, there are wounds that are open and have not yet healed or there may be open wounds in the area of the operation, then this condition may be caused by an obstacle to joining the wound that has occurred. This barrier to the union of the wound can be caused by several things, such as:
2. wound care is not optimal
3. the wound surfaces do not meet each other
4. the dirt that hinders wound closure
And if the complaint of this wound is not accompanied by complaints of digestion, then it is possible that this wound that does not heal occurs in the surgical wound on the skin of the operation area and does not affect your digestive function.
If this condition persists, you can consult a plastic surgeon to help heal your wound. The doctor will conduct an evaluation regarding the chronic wound condition and then take steps for treating you.
For now, you should still cover your wound until you see your plastic surgeon. You can use a waterproof bandage according to the size of your wound. And can be replaced about every 3 days until you see your doctor. Avoid alcohol and cigarettes when consuming them.
That is the information we can convey, read also old wounds.
