The Shoulder Is Still Difficult To Move After Insertion Surgery 3 Months Ago?
I have had 3 months of pen insertion surgery on the shoulder. But until now my shoulders are still difficult to move, they feel stiff and sore when I try to train them to move them. But I tried to keep practicing it but it didn’t take long because it hurt. R nIs that kind of condition normal? So, what should I do ?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. When a person has a fracture, the part of the bone that was broken can actually heal by itself. However, in order for the return or fusion of the bones to be maximized, in the sense that they do not cause deformities, be faster, and return to normal, the bone segments need to be directed so that they are aligned and resemble their original conditions. In order for the two or more broken bone segments to remain aligned during the healing process, a pen is inserted through the surgical procedure. For more details, the picture is as below.
As is also shown in the figure above, insertion of pins is generally not performed on joints. Because if so, movement will be hampered because the body part will not be able to bend. So that in your case, the movement resistance in your shoulder actually needs to be studied further about the cause. It is necessary to check whether there is inflammation or the like in the part where the insertion of the pen appears.
Our advice is that you should return to control of the orthopedist who treats you and ask about these complaints. If you haven't had another X-ray in 3 months, you can ask him again to compare his recovery progress so far. If there is an abnormality, your doctor will find out about it this way.
Meanwhile, if it is really painful, you don't need to force yourself to train your shoulders, warm compresses and increase the protein in your food sources, such as those from cheese, yogurt, tempeh, tofu, chicken breast, meat, milk and seafood. You can take over-the-counter painkillers by reading the rules of use first. So, hopefully it answers your question.
