Pain In The Bone When The Fracture Pen Has Not Been Removed?
My hand was broken in 2014 and at that time I was immediately operated on and put a pen … and until now the pen has not been removed. I consume to relieve the pain while I am now breastfeeding. thanks
Hello Lutfi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, a pen that is attached to a broken bone does not always have to be removed. The release of the pen will usually be recommended if the pen causes pain, an infection occurs, the pen shifts, nerve damage occurs due to the formation of scar tissue, or there is an allergy to the pen material.
In cases like you, you should immediately consult an orthopedic doctor so that further examination of your bones can be fitted with the pen. The doctor will probably suggest removing the pen so it doesn't cause back pain.
For now, you can take painkillers such as paracetamol to help relieve the pain you are feeling. The drug is safe for consumption by women who are breastfeeding. Stronger pain medications can only be prescribed by a doctor. You should not delay the examination to prevent certain complications such as damage to wider tissue in the area around the pen.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
