The Use Of Drugs After Surgery?
Hello, permission to ask about a bint eye, well on August 30, 2019 I did surgery on the upper eye, then I was given a medicine that has a yellow colored cendo liquid and ointment for mycos cendo eye, can the ointment be used? And how long is the recovery after surgery? There is an issue from my friend that he shouldn’t be exposed to water for 5 days, is that correct?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drug that you mentioned is an ointment that contains antibiotics, and in fact it might indeed have been taken right since the operation was completed. This is because after every surgery on any organ, the doctor will definitely give antibiotics to prevent infection from the area that has just been operated on. So in your case, unless the doctor says that you have to postpone its use, you should actually use it now. Observe the rules of use and follow the advice given by your doctor.
Regarding your next question, for postoperative healing will also depend on each person. If you, for example, have already had an infection, the healing can take longer than if you didn't experience it. In addition, the size of the wound, age, and the presence or absence of other clinical conditions also play a role in determining the duration of healing. But generally it takes about a week.
Then to be exposed to water, the wound must be kept dry and clean to avoid infection and support the recovery process. If you put a bandage on it, of course it should not be exposed to water because the bandage will absorb water and make the area moist. However, if there is no bandage, it is not a problem to be exposed to water as long as you dry it again immediately and not be left wet.
Apart from all that, pay attention when your control time, and if there are symptoms that you experience such as redness, pain, bleeding, swelling or fluid from the injured area, immediately return to the doctor who treats you. So, hopefully answering your question.
