Treatment Of Little Finger Fractures?
I want to ask for a fracture of the little finger, usually the removal of the PEN, how many months is it? then what medicine should you take for fracture pain?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fractures can make the sufferer experience significant limitations in activities. Therefore, proper handling is needed so that the quality of life of the sufferer does not decrease because of it.
The principle of treating fractures (including finger fractures) is basically by bringing the broken bone segment closer together and immobilizing it. In this way, it is hoped that the bones can be joined back together in a good position as before. One of the procedures for handling fractures that can be taken is the installation of a pen (plate and screw). This action is done to fix the broken bone so that it can optimize bone recombination.
After the insertion of the pen, the patient will usually be advised to undergo periodic control to an orthopedic specialist to evaluate the healing process that occurs. Furthermore, after assessing that the bones have been fused properly, this pen will be removed through surgery. As for how long it takes for this pen to be removed, of course depends on many factors, including the type of fracture, the activity and mobility performed during treatment, the patient's nutritional status, and other diseases experienced by the patient that have the potential to hinder the process of recombining the bones. However, generally the pen will be removed within 6 to 10 weeks of insertion.
Consult again with your orthopedic specialist regarding the best treatment to deal with your complaint. Yes. There are no special drugs that should be consumed for people with fractures. However, if you feel pain, you can first take pain relievers, for example paracetamol or other drugs that your doctor prescribes. In addition, the doctor can also give you additional supplements to speed up the regeneration of the broken bone.
Hope it helps ..
