In order to explore the best treatment and rehabilitation outcome of post-infection inflammation by reducing wound infection and postoperative complications, 54 patients undergoing general surgery are divided into 2 groups to investigate rehabilitation intervention in the treatment of Infection of surgical incision. Results showed that there was no significant difference in operation time and neck drainage volume between the experimental group and the control group. C-reactive protein level of the experimental group was lower than that of the control group on days 1 and 3 after surgery. The C-reactive protein levels of the experimental group was lower than that of the control group at 12, 24, 48 and 48 h after operation. There was no significant difference in the pain score between the experimental group and the control group at 72 h after operation. The anxiety score of the experimental group was lower than that of the control group before and after operation and the satisfaction of the experimental group was higher than that of the control group. In the control group, in terms of hospitalization costs and hospitalization time, the experimental group was lower than the control group and the therapeutic effect of inflammatory infection was lower than that of the experimental group. Rehabilitation intervention needed to be carried out during the treatment of surgical incision infection and inflammation. It could reduce physical and mental discomfort of the patients and allow quick recovery as well as relieve the pain after operation, alleviate anxiety, and improve the patient satisfaction, shorten hospitalization time and reduce hospitalization expenses.
