Treatment for burn contracture and burn scars Posted By Gagandeep Singh Date : 27-May-08
My name is Gagandeep Singh and I am 23 years old living in Chandigarh, Punjab, India pin-160062. I received 50 % burn injuries in year 2003 on my upper part of body including both hands and face as well. First I was admitted in Sector-16 General Hospital, Chandigarh for initial treatment but as the wound didnt heal much they refereed me to Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh for grafting. I was not operated there because of the tests and haemoglobin and other reasons then as the time was passing my parents admitted me to a private hospital in Mohali and Dr. V D Singh (Plastic Surgeon from Chandigarh) operated me in private hospital but after dressing the graft did not settle and my condition was again worsened then he referred me to Christian Medical College & Hospital (Ludhiana). I was taken a good care there and the doctors operated me there 2-3 times and the grafted me well and they discharged me in the same year, but after that I developed contractures on my neck, both arms and hands too which I am still struggling to release it fully. As I developed contractures I didnt wear the pressure garments properly as prescribed by the doctors and I developed scars on my face, neck and keliods on my both hands and upper part of body and even on my thighs. I have released the neck contracture twice but it wasnt released fully and I am not able to move my neck fully. The problem which I am facing now is contractures, scars on my face because it feels awkward when I go outside the scars on my face becomes more visible and reddish in the sunlight and keliods on my hands and upper body. Please tell me what is the proper treatment for my problems which I am facing for 4 years since as I am ready to go under any treatment. I do have pictures of mine which I can send to you for examining. Please explain me in detail what can be done in my case to make my skin as normal. I am facing a very much difficulty with scars and keliods on my body .Please help me to get the way out. I will be ready to contact you at any time.
