Still Feeling Pain In The Stitches Used In Pterygium Surgery?
I want to ask, can I remove Pterigum surgery threads, because my father still feels pain after the surgery, please advise me, I am very worried about my father. Thank you
Hello Muhmmd Dody,
Pterygium is a membrane that grows on the eyeball. This condition is a benign condition but the membrane can continue to grow and obstruct the view of the sufferer. In addition to the growth of the membranes in the eyeball, sufferers can also experience complaints of red eye, irritation, discomfort in the eye. Surgery for pterygium is recommended for patients who have pterygium that interferes with vision or if after undergoing treatment, this treatment cannot overcome pterygium. Does this eye pain occur immediately after undergoing surgery? Pain that is felt at night after surgery may be caused by inflammation that occurs after surgery. You are not recommended to pull out the sewing thread yourself because this action can cause certain negative effects. If your father is still experiencing eye pain and is very annoying, you should encourage your father to go back to see an eye specialist who treats your father. The doctor will re-examine your father's eyes to find the cause before determining the next treatment. In the meantime, avoid exposure to air and sunlight. Encourage your father to avoid rubbing a sore eye. Please continue to consume or use medicines that are recommended by your doctor.
I hope this helps.
