Sports Are Recommended After Pen Installation?
I in February 2018 underwent surgery to install a pen for the fracture of the fat on the left thigh, after months I have never exercised again … if I exercise, what sport is recommended? Oh yes how long does it take to remove the pen and return to normal yes? That’s all thanks in advance🙏
Hello Ariesha, thank you for the question.
Pen placement is usually done on fractures. This pen placement aims to glue the broken bone and hold it in the correct position. The duration of fracture healing varies, depending on the type of fracture, location, and severity, usually for months to years.
During the recovery process, exercise that puts a strain on your bones is actually not recommended, light exercise such as swimming, table tennis and other sports that do not place excessive strain on your femur bones can be done. But you should first consult a bone specialist who performs surgery on your bones, because it's almost 1 year after the installation of pen, and you should see the healing, whether the bones are strong enough to do normal activities and sports.
In some cases, the pen is not done, especially if you do not have annoying complaints. for example, pain in the location of pen placement, infection, and others. However, the removal of this pen can be done after a direct examination by a bone specialist, the doctor will assess whether the broken bone has fully recovered or not, and whether it should be done pen removal surgery. Usually after a few years the pen can be removed, depending on the condition of the bone.
Some things that can help speed up the bone healing process include:
Avoid excessive use of broken bones Eat healthy and nutritious food Drinking water Adequate rest Consumption of supplements or milk containing calcium Sunbathing in the morning for absorption of vitamin D If there are complaints at the location of the installation of pen and before you do sports you should consult first to your bone specialist.
Thus, hopefully useful.
