When Can Exercise Go Back After Lipoma Surgery On The Back?
Afternoon DoctorI have finished my back lipoma surgery on April 16, 2019, how many months after the surgery is safe for me to start sky yoga? 2 or 3 months after? Please info
Hello, thanks for the question.
Lipo is an abnormal growth of fat tissue under the skin, between the layers of the skin and muscles, which is very slow and generally harmless. This lipoma will usually feel soft, easy to move, and there are no signs of inflammation, such as pain, redness, swelling, and so forth. Although not dangerous and does not cause complaints, these lumps can interfere with appearance, cause discomfort, and are more at risk of developing to become heavier. Therefore, surgery is sometimes performed to remove the lipoma. The duration of wound healing varies by individual, depending on the condition of the wound, the location of the wound, and the health condition of the person. Clean wounds on the back are generally fused and dry out after 2 weeks after suturing. However, it can take longer or faster depending on the person's wound condition and health status. Wounds that have an infection healing need more time. After surgery, doctors usually do not recommend doing strenuous activities, especially those involving areas of the body that have been injured because of fear that the wound will be removed. Physical activity, one of which as you mentioned (sky yoga) can be done if the wound wound has healed and is completely dry. Therefore it should be waited for 2 weeks to 1 month to ensure the wound has completely healed and has been able to carry out physical activity as usual. We recommend that you re-control the doctor for wound care to be assessed in order to assess the condition and process of wound healing and ensure that physical activity to be carried out is safe and does not endanger the surgical wound. Wound care that can be done alone at home to accelerate wound healing include:
Wash hands before and after cleaning the wound
Clean the wound with gauze moistened with 0.9% NaCl solution or an antiseptic solution such as povidone iodine regularly
If a small wound does not need to be covered with a bandage
Apply the ointment your doctor prescribes to the wound and take medication regularly as directed
Change bandages every day or every bandage dirty / wet
Keep the wound dry
Perform wound control according to the schedule given or at any time when there are complaints on the wound.
Thus, hopefully useful
