Hello, Aimmuach, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.


Surgical wound healing depends on several factors, namely:


1.    Body parts operated on


2.    Wound hygiene and sterility


3. The patient's health condition, such as a disease such as diabetes


4. Duration and nature of operation


If the surgical scars are still wet and hollow, there are several possibilities. The surgical scars are still in the process of healing, or there is an infection in the wound. If the hole is at the end and is small, it usually serves as a channel to drain the remaining fluid and blood. The hole will close in some time.


Signs of infection include swelling, smelly, yellowish discharge, pain, and redness at the surgical site. Another possibility of a wound that is still wet is the presence of a seroma, which is a collection of clear fluid formed because there is a cavity in the surgical site. Breast tumor surgery is performed by removing the tumor from the breast tissue, so that there is often an empty cavity after tissue removal. In response to the body, the body will release fluid to fill the cavity.


To determine your current condition, perform regular check-ups on your surgical wound according to your doctor's advice. Subsequent therapy depends on the condition of your wound in each control. Maintain cleanliness especially in your wound area. If the gauze is dirty and wet, replace your gauze immediately. Accelerate your wound healing by eating lots of high-protein foods such as egg whites, sea fish, consuming vitamin C, drinking lots of water, getting enough rest, not moving the injured part a lot, regularly checking with the doctor, and regularly taking the medicine prescribed by the doctor.


That's it, I hope it's useful.

Regards,


dr. Sarah Rizqia
