The Suture Has Been Removed But Still Feels Painful?
Good morning, permission to ask a week ago my wife fell and her feet got broken into ceramics which resulted in a tear wound under the inner ankle and stitched up 7 stitches, yesterday the connection control was dry and removed but why after being lifted my wife felt extreme pain, this Is it normal or not? Please explain, thank you …
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Normal pain in a wound condition, normally it gradually disappears, not getting stronger. Your wife's pain a week ago, it should be more severe than it is now, and if the pain has disappeared, it should not come back if the wound is well cared for.
In its current condition, lifting the stitches doesn't have any bad effect on your wife, especially to the point of causing intense pain because let's say the stitches are removed prematurely, what happens is the wound reopens, the blood flows out, the skin looks untidy and you or your wife You will certainly know this directly in the doctor's office. Or if the doctor sews wrong, the wound will not dry, will not close, and the pain at the beginning of the stitches, not at the end after being pulled.
Therefore, there may be other conditions that cause the pain, could be due to infection due to lack of hygiene, could be due to too much sustaining activity in the feet, could be due to a new injury, could be due to the muscles being attracted, could be due to applying certain ingredients to the scar or others which cannot be ascertained without direct inspection. Our advice, you should bring your wife back to the doctor may be the same or different, for further examination. The doctor will later determine whether this is indeed related, and whether it can be dealt with directly or need the help of specialist doctors such as surgeons, neurologists, or so on.
Meanwhile, avoid your wife standing for too long, consuming painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs that are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed, keep your body clean, especially on the scars, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
