The Surgical Scar On The Breast 1 Year Ago Is Still Painful?
Sorry to ask why the former surgery 1 year ago in the breast still painful until now, is it brbahay or what?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified, what complaints have you experienced before in your breasts that should be treated with surgery? What types of operations are performed? So, how is the condition of the surgical scar at this time, has it healed?
Surgery can be done as a treatment for various problems in the breast, for example abscesses, cysts, fibroadenomas, cancer, and so on. Depending on the disease experienced, this operation can be done by only making small incisions or even removing the entire breast tissue. After surgery, the body will form scar tissue to cover the scar. This scar tissue at a glance is the same as skin tissue in general, it's just that, the elasticity is much lower. This condition causes frequent pain around the surgical scar, especially when you do excessive movement.
Not only that, it may also be that the pain around the breast surgery scar occurs due to other factors, for example:
Inhibition of wound healing, often occurs due to infection
Infection or inflammation of the skin around the surgery scar, for example due to boils, acne, contact dermatitis, excessive friction or scratching
Disorders of the internal organs around the breast, for example the lungs, pleura, heart, stomach, esophagus, and so on
Try at this time you first relieve the pain that appears using a warm compress. Avoid massaging or pressing the painful area too much, including giving careless treatment without the advice of a doctor. Get plenty of rest first, reduce excessive activity that involves contracting the muscles around the breasts, chest and arms that were used for surgery. You can also treat severe pain with pain relievers, for example paracetamol.
However, if the pain still doesn't get better even though you have undergone the above treatment, you should check your complaint directly with the doctor so that it is given the best treatment according to the condition that underlies your complaint.
I hope this helps.
