Overcoming Wounds That Are Still Open Due To Thread Allergy After Surgical Removal Of The Uterus?
Hello doctor … I need an answer. My mother had just removed the uterus, then had surgery, then after 2 months the wound was already dry but there were 3 points in the abdomen that were still hollow or not yet covered, said the doctor who handled it because of sewing thread allergies. So what is the best solution for this yarn allergy, so that the skin can reunite? Please answer …
Hello Soraya, thank you for asking.
Allergies are indeed unpredictable for whom and for what. Various types of substances or substances can have the possibility to cause allergies in certain people. That also applies to sewing threads. Sewing thread consists of natural and synthetic sewing thread. Natural thread is generally used for deep stitches and is absorbent in body tissue, so it does not need to be removed. But for external seams that generally require a longer time to close, doctors usually use synthetic threads.
If your mother has a sewing thread allergy, several possibilities can be done:
re-sew parts that have not been tight, with a different type of thread.
cover the wound with a bandage, while regularly cleaning and monitoring the progress of wound closure.
used glue or some kind of special tissue staeples.
The treatment depends on the condition of the wound, whether the wound is wide and deep or superficial and dry. Consult this with the treating doctor, the doctor will provide possible choices. While this is doing wound care as recommended by a doctor. Try your mother to consume high-protein foods such as vegetables, fruit, lean meat, eggs, seeds, and nuts. Limit activities that are too heavy to avoid tearing at the seams that are not tight. Thus our advice, hopefully useful. Regards.
