Swollen Face After Wrist Surgery?
, my mother had an accident and was operated on the wrist, after surgery the right cheek was swollen, what does that have to do with the surgery?
Hello Hasty, thanks for asking.
You did not explain what surgery your mother underwent and how much time ago the operation was performed. What kind of accident your mother experienced, also not explained. Basically, when an accident, it depends on the mechanism of the collision and the severity of the collision, blunt injuries can occur in various areas of the body, including the face. Anatomically, there is no relationship between surgery on the hands and swelling on the face. Unless the swelling occurs locally on the hands, then this is natural, because the hands are still in the healing stage. If the swelling occurs thoroughly, then there is the possibility of allergic to a drug. However, if the swelling occurs locally and asymmetrically on the face, then it is unlikely that the swelling is related to surgery.
The most logical possibility is, the swelling in the cheek is caused by a collision during an accident. Of course your mother might not realize or not remember when her face was hit by something, because the accident process happened quickly. So that, you and your family can discuss directly with the treating doctor, to ask for an estimate of the cause of the swelling and possible healing.
Hopefully this answer is quite useful. Regards.
