Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

The incubation period for Clostridium tetani bacteria (the bacteria that causes tetanus) is in the range of 3-21 days, in most cases new symptoms of infection will appear 1 day after exposure to the bacteria. Symptoms that usually appear include stiffness in the jaw and difficulty opening the mouth, stiffness in the muscles of the back, stomach, and hands and feet, sudden muscle contractions that feel pain, difficulty swallowing, spasms, headaches, fever, high blood pressure and pulses fast heart. If symptoms occur only 2 days after exposure, it is likely that the symptoms experienced by your mother are not caused by tetanus. In addition, your mother also gets tetanus injections in less than 48 hours after exposure, so your mother's risk of developing tetanus is very small.


Stiffness in the stomach can be caused by other things, such as injury or impact to the abdomen, excessive use of abdominal muscles (for example after certain sports), gastrointestinal infections, flatulence (can be due to various causes as well), gallstones, etc. You should pay further attention to whether there are other symptoms experienced in the next few days, for example whether stiffness in the stomach persists, whether there is pain in the stomach, there is severe nausea, vomiting or other digestive disorders, fever, or other symptoms that interfere . If there isn't, then there's nothing to worry about. But if the symptoms of stiffness in the stomach persist, the more severe, or there are other symptoms that are felt, immediately consult a doctor again.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
