Right Humerus Condylus Fracture And Accompanied By Elbow Joint Dislocation?
Morning a month ago I fell from the bathroom. My right hand has a fracture / fracture. Then I took it to the treatment of broken bones / denial Putung. My hands were sorted and cared for for 15 days. Because I felt there was no change, it was still bent in my hands, so I asked to be forced to go home. Finally allowed by the massage specialist, although at the beginning he said he was not allowed to go home. The next day I took my treatment to the health facility level 1 clinic, because I used BPJS. The results of the examination by the clinic doctor were suspected of fracture, and were referred to the hospital to be handled by the orthopedic doctor directly. After receiving the referral letter, the next day I went straight to the hospital. After going through several registration processes. I went straight to the orthopedic doctor’s office, I explained in advance from the beginning I fell until I brought the treatment of broken bones. And I was asked by the doctor to X-ray and rest the blood first. And the result of the X-ray was that my right hand was suspected to be a fracture of the right humerus and was accompanied by dislocation of the right elbow joint. Today I will go to the hospital again to show the X-ray and blood rest to the orthopedic doctor. Although I don’t yet know the actions of the orthopedic doctor, my feeling is that I will be operated on. R nDirect to its core. So, like this, my left hand had experienced a fracture. and because I was a child and my parents’ lack of knowledge broke my bones. Finally I was taken to a fracture treatment too, and as a result of the treatment of the fracture my left hand was bent, my left hand was already abnormal. My question is, if later on my right hand is operated on, can I also be operated on for my left hand? So that my right and left hand can be normal again. Can it? And if it can, does the BPJS cover 100% of the operating costs? Thanks doctor.
Hi Adi .. Thank you for the question.
Trauma to the bone can result in dislocation or it can also be a fracture / fracture. Dislocation is a condition where the bone shifts out of its normal position. From the x-ray results you get a fracture and dislocation then it is your right step by going to an orthopedic doctor. So the doctor can adjust the results of physical examination with X-ray examination results. In cases of fracture, the doctor may recommend a cast, use a special sling, or it can be surgery. This action aims to rest the bones so that there is not much movement, also aims to return the bone to its original shape.
As for your left hand which has broken a bone and is now bent, this can occur due to complications that occur due to improper handling of fractures. Or in medical language this is called malunion / bone recovery that is not true so that the bones become bent or not the same length. Malunion can occur due to improper fracture management, premature mobilization, poor nutritional intake during the recovery process. Handling for malunion is by surgery that is by cutting the bone and returned to its original position, then installed a pen, wire, or other.
For which treatment will be carried out first by the doctor then this is determined by the doctor who treats you directly. However, what needs to be treated immediately is a broken bone and dislocation on your right hand. Furthermore, after your right hand has recovered, it can be continued with treatment on your left hand. If you have BPJS then you can go to a hospital that works with BPJS.
