Pain In The Lower Part Of The Surgical Suture (drain)?
I just finished my second operation because the first stitch was open. For this re-stitching at the bottom of the seam in the drain plug, just pull it up to day 3 now it is still shriveling up. And until now there is still fluid (dirt) coming out … Will this affect the stitches or what will I do? Explanation please..
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
You need more information about the surgery you are doing, so you need to install the drain, the condition for the installation of the drain, and the condition of the post-retractable suture. Postoperative wounds will gradually recover from the wound. The condition for wound recovery will go through several phases, such as the inflammatory phase, fibroblastic phase, and wound maturation phase.
Some factors that need to be considered in wound healing include the size of the wound, the depth of the wound, the condition of the stitches for the post-operative wound, and the treatment of the post-operative wound. Complications that can occur postoperatively include pain in the surgical wound, swelling in the surgical wound, discharge from the surgical wound (can be in the form of clear fluid, pus, or blood), stitches in the surgical wound that is loose / loose. So that after surgery, post-operative wound care is also important to speed up the process of surgical wound recovery.
If fluid is found coming out of the post-operative wound after removal of the drain, it is advisable to report it again to the nurse or doctor if still in hospitalization, or return to control the doctor regarding surgery for further examination and management. It is recommended to maintain the cleanliness and condition of the wound after the operation is dry, change the dressing according to the schedule, carry out regular control according to the schedule, avoid the consumption of self-medication without consulting a doctor first.
Hopefully this information can help you,
