HI, Thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX and I am here to help you today with your question. I will be happy to assist you with your follow up questions also. I need few details.
Are you talking about internal sutures?
Are you experiencing any symptoms after that weight lifting?
Is there a swelling at your operated area?
Is there any pain on pressing the area of soreness?
Can you feel that the temperature over that area is raised as compared to surroundings?
Have you tried anything so far for soreness?
Has it helped?
Has tylenol helped you or not?
Are you with me
Just few questions so that i can assess your problem.
Can you raise your habd normally without significant pain?
Thanks a lot for your input.
i have assessed your symptoms in detail and i would like to reassure you that you are safe and your sutures were not affected because
By third week, internal tissues have significantly healed and weight lifting in your case cannot result in suture break down
Rather by third week most of the internal sutures get absorbed.
Moreover your symptoms are not consistent with any wound breakdown otherwise in that case you must have significant swelling and pain on motion.
So just relax and continue tylenol and massage the area with OTC voltaren gel twice daily and you will be fine in few days.
If symptoms persist for one week or worsen then visit your doctor but hopefully this wil not be required.
Yes sure, that wil lhelp you because its likely to be just a pulled muscle.
Gel is local anti inflammatory and pain killer.
It will absorb to reach internal tissues and will relieve the inflammation.
If you are allowed to take ibuprofen thrice daily then its better than tylenol.
You are most welcome.
