Hello Mr. Masko Sitinjak,
Broken bones occur when there is a collision / injury whose strength exceeds the bone itself. The bigger the bone, the stronger the prisoner and requires greater strength to break it. For example motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, heavy objects / very hard. In certain conditions such as osteoporosis / bone loss, a person can become more prone to fractures.
A broken bone should be examined immediately by a bone specialist (orthopedic and traumatologist). Imperfect healing can cause:
Delayed union, which is a slow or delayed bone grafting
Nonunion, the bone failed to reconnect
Malunion, which is connected bone but not right. Eventually the bones become bent, stiff, have lumps or the function does not return to normal
Nerve and blood vessel disorders
If the treatment is good, usually the bones will be fully connected within a few weeks to months, and its function can return within 6 months to a year, depending on the severity and handling. But if the healing is not good, it could be longer or there is a malunion as mentioned above.
It is recommended that you immediately check with an orthopedic doctor immediately. The sooner the better, so that the handling is not too late. The decision for surgery is certainly determined after the inspection. Risks of fracture surgery include infection, pain, bleeding, implant allergy, and impaired function. But of course the operating decision has weighed the benefits outweighed the risks for you.
Hopefully this is useful,
