When Can Walk After Taking Off The Pen Outside Of The Foot?
Good afternoon. In the middle of the bone febariari on the sole of my foot that is, the middle finger and index finger of my right leg have been broken so far I still cannot walk without the help of a stick and there is also a visible pen (outward pen) and on the 4th of April I removed the outer pen . Then, when can I walk after the surgery has been removed? Thank you if you respond.
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
The process of restoring function after a broken bone generally takes time. Some factors that can affect the return of the walking function are pain in the area of injury, the healing process of bone that has occurred, bone strength after splicing, muscle strength after not moving, the general condition of the patient.
However, because the toe is actually not the main structure in the movement of the lower limbs, at least after the swelling and pain is reduced, and the bones are well connected, you can immediately train your legs to walk. This exercise should generally be done as soon as possible, to prevent muscle wasting.
However, to further ascertain step by step that you must pass to restore your walking function, you should discuss further with the doctor who treats you. Because he is most aware of your current condition so of course you can plan the right management for you, according to the current conditions.
As for what you should do:
Limit strenuous physical activity
Avoid the activity of lifting heavy objects first to reduce the burden on the feet
Consumption of foods containing lots of calcium to help the healing process
To reduce pain, you can take over-the-counter medicines such as paracetamol.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
