Daily life after orbital fracture surgery
Q: A woman in her mid-40s. A few days ago, I had an orbital fracture surgery. It took about 40 minutes and a total of 4 hours, including the time to wake up from anesthesia. They say my recovery is so good. A week later, there are no bruises and only a few red spots remain in the cornea. It’s getting better over time.
I don’t do extreme sports such as boxing or swimming. The doctor in charge said I could do light exercise now. I’m just throwing shots at the basketball court. Will it be okay?
It was difficult to decide whether to operate or not because the fracture was not severe. I had surgery because my muscles were stuck. It is due to abdominal pain and nausea in the stomach. About 10 days have passed since the artificial bone was inserted, but the upper box disappeared, and when looking at the left and right heights, it appears to be two and then slowly merges into one. The boxing has improved, but it still gets dizzy when you look at the boxing side. Is it normal? How long will it take for osteoconjugation to be possible? Do you get muscles again after surgery? I can’t live my daily life because I’m scared.
A: It’s okay to do light exercises other than exercises that directly shock your head. You can play basketball.
You don’t have to pay much attention to the upper box. If you have operated on muscle clogging, your muscle function may not fully return for about two to three months without muscle damage. If the upper box has disappeared, the box will gradually get better over time in the rest of the direction. Don’t worry.
Bone fusion proceeds to some extent after a month and usually recovers to normal after about three months. During that period, muscles do not get stuck again unless there is any direct trauma.
