There Is Still Pain In The Inside Of The Wound From A Breast Tumor Surgery?
1 month ago I had a benign tumor on my breast, the external wound from the ex-surgery was dry and it’s good again. But lately around the surgical wound, the inside sometimes feels painful, has the wound not healed completely? How long will the deep wound return to how it was before it no longer feels painful ,? What foods should I consume in order to accelerate wound healing in the post-operation?
Thank you for the question.
There are many types of benign tumors that can appear in the breast, can originate from the breast tissue parenchyma itself, or it can also be from other tissues that support it. Therefore, the type of surgery that can be performed to remove a benign tumor can be different, and the healing time will also vary.
Postoperative removal of benign tumors in the breast, provided that good wound care is taken, the duration of healing will generally last for 2-4 weeks. As for the pain that you still feel in the former operation, it often happens naturally because scar tissue patches of tissue that are less elastic, so it will feel pain when you make excessive movements. Provided that this pain is mild, improves with rest and warm compresses, and is not accompanied by symptoms of severe inflammation around the former surgery (eg swelling, redness, runny, festering), often this condition is not dangerous. There is also no special food that is recommended to accelerate wound healing postoperatively.
However, if with the above efforts the pain that appears does not also improve, it is worth watching out for other conditions, such as secondary infections in the former surgery, injury to the tissues around the breast during surgery, or also pain from other causes (not directly related to the operation) such as pleurisy, bronchitis, gastritis, heart attacks, gastroesophageal reflux disease, arthritis, and so on. If this is the case, you should check yourself back in to the doctor so that you are given the best treatment according to the cause of shit.
I hope this helps.
