User:but should be less then that
Doctor:in case, it is less than that, it is fine, it should heal by itself in a few days.
User:i have to check with doctor to give some medicines
Doctor:if not, the edges will have to be approximated and attached, so as to allow them to heal
User:to heal
Doctor:keep the part dry, and do not remove the scab, again and again, this may delay healing
User:what attachment
User:my operated doc asked me to put the ointment t bact and told me that it will heal on its own
Doctor:i mean the skin where it is separated, may need to be re attahced, since its taking long time to heal ,
User:again operation
Doctor:but, it will depend on the exact size of the gap,
User:it may take few more weeks
Doctor:no , not a surgery,
User:then how thy will re attach
Doctor:this can be done in your doctors office itself , and will take less than a minute
User:with out giving ansethesia
User:it may pain badly
Doctor:no, u dont need to worry
Doctor:for now
Doctor:in case, that is needed, it will be done under local anesthesia,
User:but due to local ansethesia only i got the swelling
User:but if i do it again before wedding
Doctor:no, the swelling occurs, not due to that, but as a inflammatory reaction
User:it will be difficult
Doctor:which is common during the healing process
Doctor:for now, just relax, and continue to take antibiotics and brufen, as advised by ur doctor
Doctor:keep the part dry
User:ok but kindly suggest before 10 days of my wedding you want me to do all these things
Doctor:that should speed up the healing
User:u dont want me to apply t bact
Doctor:applying ointments, can cause the part to always be filled with discharge
Doctor:so cleaning with betadine and keeping it dry, will be the best way
Doctor:and also, minimal application of ointment is needed , stuffing too much can cause lack of proper healing ,
Doctor:hence , betadine and keep it dry
User:i am using the too much of ointment
Doctor:the area should heal up in 3-4 days time , but continue oral medications
Doctor:that should not be done
Doctor:use minimal amounts, just to coat the surface,
Doctor:Have u understood my suggestions
User:i will check with this doc today
User:and get back to you on the same
