Release Of A Broken Bone Pen With Pliers?
Afternoon .. My father has a very hard nature .. A month ago just underwent a fracture of the calf and put a pen out of the skin .. The last two weeks complained of itchy wound and insisted on being released .. Because I know the person I could not deny that I followed the wish to see a doctor, even though I knew it was not possible to be released, I hoped he would listen to the doctor talk .. Already to the general practice of orthopedic specialists, to hospitals, and to health centers … All refused and said they had to opened a year or the fastest 6 months .. In my opinion that right should be too .. I also don’t agree once opened because then the operating costs are also very expensive and can not be run already off .. But before unknowingly, he opened it himself pen out of the skin using pliers .. Already uprooted 2 pens out of 5 … It’s really stressful and shake my head .. According to the doctor is it dangerous? What should I do now? Considering taking him to the hospital would be a problem for me … Because he opened it himself … And he certainly refused to be taken to the hospital … Is it dangerous if he leaves it?
Hello Hendriawan, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Previously it should be known that the installation of pen in the case of broken bones serves to provide stability during the recovery process of broken bones. That way the broken bone can come together and in a normal position. The length of time needed to use the pen varies depending on the type of bone fracture, the injured bone, the age of the sufferer, adherence to patients with medical treatment and smoking habits.
Both the installation and the removal process of the pen should be carried out by experts to minimize the risk of infection. Besides that the pen that will be released should have been consulted in advance to the doctor to assess the condition of the bone whether the condition of the bone has blended well or not. If the pen is removed before the time it can cause bone fused imperfectly. So it can be concluded that opening the pen without the help of medical personnel is very risky causing various complications ranging from infection to abnormal bone shape to nerve tissue damage.
you should invite your father to see an orthopedic doctor.
