Good afternoon, my father had surgery (cleansing for a dead nerve) leg and one of the toe bones was removed. My question is, is the result of the operation truly open and only wrapped in bandages? As a layman the question arises because to my knowledge the results of the operation were closed (sewn). Thank you…

Good afternoon Michael, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Diabetes foot surgery performed by your father basically aims to get rid of the tissues in the legs that have died due to complications of nerve and blood vessel disorders in patients with diabetes.


Regarding post-operative wounds, not all of them have to be sewn, because each wound has different wound care methods depending on the type of wound and the cause of the wound itself. In diabetic foot cleansing operations, the tissue is removed to prevent infection and also to trigger other healthy tissue to regenerate to form new tissue so that it is not recommended for stitches.


Post-cleansing wound care must also be very concerned because the risk of infection is still there and also the risk of re-emergence of a dirty wound like before cleaning even still exists. It is highly recommended to continue to perform routine wound care as recommended by the doctor and also continue to keep your father's blood sugar levels stable to prevent worsening.


I hope this helps.
