Hello ,, want to ask how to reduce swelling, post-bone loss surgery leg. Because I already understand how you work. MAYBE because it’s already hard to be old. I often recommend “let’s move feet, let’s learn to sit in the chair, let’s study jlan”. But he’s actually comfortable with staying still. which in turn is swollen 😓😓😓. Please help, mksh 😇😇
Hello Siti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In post-bone surgery patients or any surgery involving the leg area, it is very important for him to keep trying to do minimal movement to speed up recovery, maintain good muscle mass and function, and to avoid swelling as is currently happening to your father.
Postoperative swelling of the foot in patients who do not want to move their feet is most often caused by disruption of blood flow back from the foot to the heart, but can also be caused by other conditions such as blockage of blood vessels in the legs, infections that occur in the former operation area, side effects of the drug , lack of protein intake or due to other diseases such as heart failure or kidney failure.
Therefore, the best way to overcome this is to consult with the doctor who performed the surgery first so that it can be determined what conditions are causing the swelling and then the therapy / medical treatment recommended based on the cause due to the possibility of the abuser as mentioned above has the recommended therapy different.
For the time being, in addition to checking your father back to the doctor, you can try again to encourage your father to move his feet occasionally by understanding that this movement is important to speed up the recovery process and to avoid worsening post-operative conditions.
If indeed your father still does not want to move his own feet, you or other family members can help to move your father's feet passively every day slowly and according to doctor's instructions, do not force papaun movements on these feet until there is further advice from the doctor .
If you or other family members are unsure about how to do it, you can further consult with a medical rehabilitation specialist to help determine what kind of rehabilitation program your father should go through.
In addition to trying to move the leg that has undergone surgery, make sure your father also gets adequate nutrition and fluid intake, avoid using tight pants and avoid recurring injuries to the feet, especially in those who have undergone surgery.
I hope this helps.
