French to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Instruments / Post-surgery procedure?
French term or phrase:Fils à J8.
This term appears at the end of a list of post-operative care instructions, including such things as "change dressings every three days", medications to take, etc. "J8" is obviously "day 8." The patient has undergone surgical repair of a ruptured Achilles tendon. This mght be as simple as a literal translation such as "threads" or much more complex. The document is from Ivory Coast. Anything you provide would be helpful! Thanks!!!
