When Is The Release Time After The Installation Operation?
I have had a fracture in the sole of the foot of the little finger segment, which I will ask next month exactly 2 months after the operation of the pen wire installation, can it be removed? And whether it has been allowed to walk? Sorry to disturb the time
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about your condition. When there is a broken bone, actually the bone itself has the ability to recover. Only, the bones do not have the ability to shift into place and maintain that position. So a pen is attached, to ensure that the bone stays in its position during the healing process. If the pen is not used, the bone can still recover but in the wrong position, causing structural abnormalities or permanent deformity.
Regarding your question, unfortunately there is no absolute time when a broken bone will heal completely. On average it usually takes 3 months, but some are 6, 9 or even 12 months, and some are faster. It all depends on the location of the fracture, the severity of the fracture, the speed of treatment, age, treatment during recovery, and the ability of each person's body to vary.
So to find out, what you can do is to regularly check yourself for control to the orthopedic doctor who operated on you according to a schedule that was agreed in advance. If at the time of the control your doctor said that your condition has recovered and the pen can be revoked, then you will immediately be scheduled for retraction surgery. But if after checking it turns out not yet, then you will be asked to control again within a certain period.
Meanwhile, to speed healing, minimize activities that are centered on the sole of the foot, for example walking or running, standing for a long time and such. Avoid massaging the area and multiply the consumption of high-protein foods such as beef, chicken breast, tempeh, tofu, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, and seafood. So, hopefully answering your question.
