The Wound On The Leg From The Fall Of The Knife?
Night r nI want to ask me Rina, age 25 years old r nI have left my left leg to fall in the slice for 5 days but there is still a tingling feeling and pain and my index finger and thumb feel numb.
Hello Rina! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
First, it may be necessary to explain in more detail the part of the blade that hits the leg. Did the knife fall and the wound was caused by the legs being stuck on the body or the handle of the knife (blunt injury) or did the knife fall on its sharp edge causing stab wounds to the leg? Blunt injury to the foot can cause damage to the bones, muscles, tendons, or ligaments in the area where they are placed. Stab wounds can also be dangerous because they can directly damage blood vessels and nerves that are important in maintaining the leg's life. An open stab wound can also put you at risk of infection. The deeper the stab wound, the more dangerous it is and the higher the risk of infection.
You should immediately come to the nearest hospital emergency room for further examination. The doctor will ask you how the knife fell and what you have done to the injured area. Your foot will be examined in person by a doctor. Your nerves will also be checked to determine if any nerves are damaged, which can cause you to experience tingling and numbness. The doctor will recommend therapy and action according to your circumstances. If you have had a stab wound and your last tetanus vaccine was more than 5 years ago, your doctor may recommend giving tetanus vaccine to prevent tetanus.
Try to keep the area clean and dry. Avoid massaging or applying anything to the injured area. Do not try to squeeze, stab, or injure the numb area, as it could be more severe, even if you don't feel pain. If the doctor gives antibiotics, spend the antibiotics as directed by the doctor. Call your doctor again if you have a fever or if your feet are swollen and painful.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
