The Tibia Fracture Surgery Scar Did Not Dry Up?
Good afternoon. R nMy husband had a motorcycle accident and his right leg broke 3 limbs and suffered an open wound. By a doctor mounted intramedullary nail. Implants that enter the bone marrow. Why hasn’t it been dry for 3 weeks already? In fact, there is a thick liquid that comes out of the open wound and around the wound sometimes feels numb. The husband also has a blood test, but the results are not alarming. It is only said that there is inflammation that is shown in white blood cells which slightly rises. For food intake as recommended. But it is still not dry and swollen like the soles of the feet if sitting for more than 1 hour and tingling the soles of the feet almost every time. I beg your doctor’s explanation. thank you
Hello Vasty Mother! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I understand that you are worried about your husband's condition. Broken bones in the tibia, especially to the point that the actions mentioned by the mother take a long time to heal, which is around 3-6 months. Inflammation or inflammation is the body's response to tibia fractures which are also important in this healing process. Pain and swelling are symptoms of this inflammation. If after being examined directly and checked by a laboratory, there are no signs of infection or other complications, the symptoms that your husband feels are still a normal inflammatory reaction. Follow the advice of the doctor who operated on your husband and control it routinely as promised. If the pain is felt more intense or unbearable, take your husband to the nearest hospital emergency room. Mothers also need to be vigilant if pus comes out or smells bad. Make sure the operating area remains clean and dry.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
