Let me explain to you.
Complete healing after a surgical incision usually takes 6 to 8 weeks
Sometimes there can be some factors that may delay the process of healing.
One of the few factors responsible for delayed healing is infection, trauma, presence of foreign body and so on.
The recurrence of pain and swelling at the region of stitches is probably a sign of inflammation.
what is inflammation
This should settle down in some time if there is no trauma and with good personal hygeine.
Inflammation is body's response to an injury - physical, chemical or biological.
If there is no significant discharge or redness, or opening of the sutures (stitches)
the symptoms should resolve soon.
what tablets i have to use know
Continue the use of tolpa which is a good anti inflammatory drug as suggested for a few more days.
Do not handle the are with bare fingers.
Maintain a proper hygeine by regular washing.
i am not doing any thing
Watch out for increase in the size of swelling, appearance of redness or increase in the discharge.
to reduce the swelling
Presence of foul smelling discharge is an ominous sign.
which will need an urgent review with your doctor.
i just come to my home town
With these measures, you should be able to recover faster without any major hassles.
If the symptoms which I just mentioned to you appear, then you would need to see a doctor personally.
Have you followed what I suggested?
Do you have any other query?
Thanks for consulting me.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
Bye for now.
