Please, get this leg exained
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this pain that you are having. i understand it must be a difficult moment for you. How much morphine
are you taking and what form do you take? You may want to increase the dose and or frequency to make sure you relief yourself of this pain.
However, the main thing to follow up with is to get this leg evaluated. The internal bone fixation material may have some problems or you may have developed another bone lesion on this leg. An initial xray would shed more light on this and orient further investigation if needed or diagnose the problem for appropriate management.
In all, increase the dose or frequency of morphine to avoid pains.You can add 1g of paracetamol
every 6hours as well for better pain management. Then, get consulted by an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and management. It ay be related to the rod and pin or another condition.
I hope this addresses your query fully and provides enough information for you to act on. Feel free to ask for any clarification or more information if needed and I will gladly respond to.Thanks for using our services and I wish you well.
