The Right Leg Is Swollen After A Fracture Surgery?
Greetings …. doki This is after an SPM accident resulted in a broken leg in my right leg. As a result, the platinum pairs were operated on. Well after returning from the hospital, I used to walk using crickets. I tried to practice using crickets, but instead my right leg was swollen but the next morning the swelling disappeared. That’s why. ? Please enlighten me!
Hello, thanks for asking.
Broken bones especially broken in the area of large bones do take a long time to heal. The pain felt is generally quite heavy. A broken bone must have a condition called inflammation, wherein the surrounding bone tissue becomes inflamed. At the time the bones begin to be used for activity then it could have triggered further inflammation. Not mentioned in which areas and what kind of swelling experienced. But the possibility of swelling can be a process of the body to overcome the inflammation of the bones.
If the swelling is gone now, there is no great pain, you can try walking slowly as long as the treating doctor has allowed it. The frequency of walking should be increased slowly, do not immediately go too far. The results of the walking exercise will be better if assisted by professionals such as medical rehabilitation officers. If when trying to walk then swelling arises again and is more severe, then you should immediately consult a doctor who treats before.
Hope the answer helps. Regards.
