Time To Remove The Pen On The Arm Bone?
At night I want to ask about the right time to remove the pen after installation, my question is already 5th, but I haven’t removed it after a hand accident in the area near my elbow was broken then I was put in the pen but after the operation of my hand mlh is swollen, now is it affected because there is a pen inside?
Arm fractures can occur as a result of an impact with great force resulting in bone discontinuity or a bone fracture. There are various types of fractures themselves and also their location so that treatment will also be different. In the condition that you have a fracture, surgery procedures and insertion of pins or plates and screws are performed to restore the position and fix the bone position as before and help the fracture healing process.
Normally the time required for the healing process varies from individual to person from 6 months, 1 year to 2 years or until the bone has completely re-joined and bone strength has returned so that the removal of the pen can be done with a previous re-evaluation by an orthopedist. regarding your condition.
If at this time it has reached 5 years and is often swollen then this can also be triggered by the pen, because after all the pen is a foreign object implanted in the body that has the potential to cause health problems due to certain conditions. For that, check your condition again at an orthopedic doctor so that an evaluation and treatment plan is carried out according to the condition you are experiencing.
