Suture Wound Solution?
Good morning, I want to ask what is the effect of eating green bean porridge for stitches, is it dangerous or not? Thank you
Hello Iffah, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Eating green bean puree does not have any effect on your stitches. In principle, there are no certain foods or drinks that are prohibited from consumption if you have stitches. This will be different if you have other comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus or diabetes. If you have sugar pain and your blood sugar is high, wound healing can be hampered. You need to keep your blood sugar in the normal range with medication, control the food and drink you consume, and always have a healthy lifestyle. If you have diabetes, then you can still consume green beans, but you should not sweeten them.
To ensure that the stitches dry quickly and don't get infected, you need to keep your stitches dry and clean. Keep the bandage over the wound dry, changing it if it gets wet or dirty. Also make sure you control to your doctor according to the schedule given to do an examination of the suture wound and open the stitches (if using non-absorbable threads). Pay attention to the signs of infection below, if you experience it, immediately return to the doctor:
there is pus in the wound
foul-smelling discharge from the wound
the wound increases pain, swelling, and redness
the wound looks dirty blackish
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
