The Cause Of The Leg Is Still Limping After Closed Fracture Surgery 6 Months Ago?
Last April, I had a closed thigh fracture surgery. And the condition of the broken cane was also broken, But 6 months have passed postoperatively, my legs feel lame when walking. Feeling pain in the insertion of the pen (waist), what is that related to?
Hello Stefani, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted the orthopedic specialist who treated you before? Limps that you experience may be caused by:
the condition of the previous fracture was severe enough that a difference in the length of the legs
bone healing process that is not good / disturbed
lack of physical therapy during the healing period
the pain that you experience so that makes the body compensate by preventing holding the body's weight on these feet
Due to limited information about your condition from the beginning to the present, the best step you can take is to consult your orthopedic specialist who is treating you. The doctor already knows your condition at the beginning and the healing process afterwards so that you can provide further explanation. The doctor will ask about your complaints, carry out checks on you, and perform other examinations such as x-rays to determine the cause. From this examination, the cause can be known and the doctor can provide appropriate treatment. To deal with temporary pain, you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol.
Hope this information helps.
