After surgery our body takes some time to heal and gain complete sensation.Similarly wounds also take some time to recover and this is the reason why doctors don't give that much attention. But this seems to be a different problem,a similar problem happens with me after complete knee replacement surgery.Read more..

My sister fell a few years back and was left with a displaced elbow fracture. Surgery was performed about a week after the injury, and rods and screws were placed in her arm. Alarmingly, intense sweling and discoloration occurred in her wrist area. The doctor kept telling her this was normal, but the problem only got worse instead of better. As it later came to light, she had developed RSD from either the injury or surgery. In short? Always seek out another opinion if you believe a wound is not healing as it should; it will better put your mind at ease.

I had open fractures 17 months ago to my left forearm. Screws and plates were fitted and the bones healed no problem. However, the skin is still healing where the bones came through. The "holes" were left for the skin to grow back itself, but I'd like to hear from others who've had open fractures and how long it took theirs to heal. How was your skin treated?
