Pus From The Ruptured Appendix Does Not Heal For 2 Weeks After Surgery?
Hi morning, I want to ask, I have an appendix, the doctor said that my intestine had burst and the pus had spread everywhere and I had a hbs operation. My operation was put in the tube for drainage of pus 2 Weeks then the tube was dislodged and the pus still came out the hole in the hose closed so the pus came out through the former operation until the suture thread broke outside and up to 2 months it still came out but it was clear finally sewn again but after sewing why is it still coming out until now. The ultrasound has been carried out, all the pus is normal, the pus has been cultured and there are bacteria that have also been given the medicine for SM, the doctor, but until now the pus has not yet been completed, how do you ask for instructions …
From the information you have conveyed, several conditions can cause postoperative wound recovery to still cause pus to come out, especially after a risky operation such as an infection of the appendix that has ruptured which causes the risk of spreading dirt in the cavity in the stomach due to dirt and pus from the ruptured appendix.
Some of the conditions that slow down the recovery period are:
1. smoked cigarettes
3. Use of illegal drugs
4. activity is still high in the recovery period
5. Do not regularly take medications that have been prescribed
6. contact with water
7. Treatment of wounds and drainage of pus is not optimal during the recovery period
Therefore, regular consultation with the doctor who treats you is an important step to undergo this recovery period. In addition, if this complaint is still bothering you in the next 2 weeks, then you can ask another surgeon for a second opinion regarding this complaint by bringing all the history of examinations and medications that have been given.
For now, avoid overexertion and treat your wound as directed by your doctor.
That's the info we can convey, read also the discussion.
