Swollen Waist On The Right Side After Falling In The Elderly?
Hello Mr. Rifwan! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Maybe you can be clearer whether the waist or ribs are affected. The ribs or ribs are the bones in the chest and back that protect organs in the chest cavity, such as the lungs and heart. The swelling that gets bigger and then erupts may be due to a bacterial infection. When a broken bone or injury occurs, the body is exposed to outside air, making it easy to become infected. The infection can collect and cause visible inflammation with the skin turning red and swollen with pain. Patients also sometimes experience fever when such infections occur.
Swelling on the left side between the thigh and genitals can also be caused by the same thing. The thigh border area with the genitals is a part of the body that often experiences friction, especially when walking or moving the legs. Friction can damage the skin structure, making it easy for infection to occur. Old age, especially if you have a history of certain diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.), can make your grandmother more susceptible to infection. The infection you experience can develop into a more dangerous one and can even end up dying.
You should immediately bring your grandmother to see a general practitioner or surgeon. The doctor will examine the parts of your grandmother's body that are disturbed. The doctor may also perform blood tests to find out comorbidities that can worsen your grandmother's condition. If there is pus collected in the swollen area, the doctor may remove the pus. With good handling from the doctor, I hope your grandmother will recover soon. Do not give rubs or massage areas that are injured, broken, or swollen, as this can worsen your grandmother's condition. You can apply cold compresses to the parts that are swollen. Make sure you wash your hands with soap before and after touching the swollen or wounded part.
That is the information that I can convey. I hope this helps.
