Hello, Nihayaww, thank you for having a date to HealthReplies.com.
fracture or in medical language is also called a fracture. One of the treatments for fractures is bone grafting through surgery, for example placing a pin in the broken bone. The process of grafting broken bones can be divided into several stages, namely:
Inflammation: in this phase there will be an inflammatory process which is characterized by swelling, pain, discoloration and usually this process can occur 1 - 7 days after the bone fracture. However, everyone can be different. Repair phase: this phase can last 2 to 3 weeks, in this phase cartilage and tissue will be formed around the fracture site, the tissue will grow to form a callus which functions to stabilize the broken part. Remodeling: the final phase of bone formation as it is beginning. Pain is a symptom that often arises after surgery, pain that occurs after a few weeks of action is generally normal. This often occurs due to a lack of movement activity which is important for bone healing, which causes the tissue around the wound or fracture to become stiff and the muscles become weaker than normal. In addition, after surgery there is still an inflammatory process or inflammation in the surrounding soft tissue, which can also limit movement and cause pain.
To reduce pain, usually some physiotherapy movements are given to the broken bone to train the surrounding tissue and muscles not to stiffen, besides that, pain can also be treated with pain medication. In general, after a few months the pain will fade away and can return to normal.
However, if the pain does not go away with painkillers, and the area of the surgery becomes swollen, severe pain, a high fever appears, or the wound becomes easy to drain pus, you should immediately see a doctor who has treated you again, so that it can be re-evaluated and given proper treatment. right.
So many answers from us, hopefully useful.
