I understand the complaint you feel. Please note that wound healing takes 1-2 weeks, which will be complete in 4-6 weeks and may take longer if the wound is deeper. Daily activities, food consumed, age, and wound handling have an important influence in the postoperative wound healing process. In addition, several conditions that can interfere with or prolong the wound healing process include metabolic diseases such as diabetes melliitus, the nutrients consumed, the presence of infections around the area of the surgery site, and others. Therefore, the time required for the wound healing process varies from person to person.
It is necessary to do an assessment and direct examination to find out the condition of your postoperative wound. So it is highly recommended to carry out regular control and consultation with your surgeon. Some of the following things you can do at home to help speed up wound recovery, including:
Regular rest Avoiding heavy lifting and excessive physical activity Consuming foods high in protein, vitamins A and C Consume plenty of water Maintain cleanliness of the area of the operation Do not scratch or pick surgery scars Can be considered taking pain relievers when pain Regularly changing bandages every 2- Once every 3 days. In addition, good wound care really supports the healing process of suture scars. Try to keep the wound clean and dry quickly, by regularly changing the bandage every 2-3 days and cleaning the area around the suture with sterile liquid, namely by wetting sterile gauze with intravenous fluids (0.9% NaCl) and giving antiseptic fluids such as betadine / providon iodine which can be purchased at the pharmacy. Protect the wound from the risk of infection by covering it with sterile gauze that is not too tight so that the wound dries up quickly. Don't forget to always control the health worker to help change the bandage if you can't do it yourself at home, and don't hesitate to check regularly with your nearest doctor. That is the information that I can convey, hope it helps
