Pain And Throbbing In The Area Of kidney Stone Surgery?
Hello, I have a question. 2 weeks ago my parents just had kidney stone surgery. But the wound from the surgery had an infection until it came out pus, but now it’s less. And now a new problem arises, where there is pain accompanied by throbbing in the operation. Please advise for this matter. Tks
From the information you have conveyed, complaints of pus in the surgical wound require regular wound care by the doctor who treats your parents, so if at this time the complaints of pus have decreased, then the surgical wound recovery process is going well.
However, if this time is accompanied by complaints of throbbing pain from the area of the operation, it is necessary to confirm the cause again by consulting directly with the doctor who treated him, whether due to a wound on the skin due to previous pus, or due to a process that occurred in the area of the kidney being operated on. The doctor will evaluate the current wound, and confirm the condition of the operation area after 2 weeks have passed, because the recovery time required can be around 6 weeks after the operation was performed. So that in the treatment stage, return control after surgery is needed to evaluate the progress of the patient's condition.
Thus, the doctor can provide the necessary wound care and treatment according to the results obtained.
What the patient needs to do during the treatment and recovery period is to maintain food intake according to the doctor's advice, sufficient water needs according to the doctor's advice, reduce excessive movement until an evaluation is obtained from the treating doctor.
That is the information we can convey, also read recovery.
