Pain After The Insertion Of The Tools Used To Fix The Broken Bone?
mw ask d the back of the sole of the foot d install the kwire for 1 year, more often than not, the pain needs to be removed and does it need to be removed
Kirschner wire (K-wire) is one of the tools used to fix the broken bone so that it is held in its original position so that bone healing can take place normally and the bone grows as usual. This k-wire is usually attached to a broken bone with a small end of the wire protruding from the skin. The part of the wire that is outside the skin aims to make it easier for doctors when removing this K-wirse. These k-wires usually need to be removed in 4-6 weeks.
You should immediately return to consult with an orthopedic specialist who treats you, especially if you experience pain around the area of the K-wire installation. The doctor will usually recommend removing the K-wire.
Hope this information is helpful.
