About the Hemorrhoids Surgery

What is the purpose of Hemorrhoids Treatment?

The purpose of hemorrhoids treatment is to manage the internal and external swelling and inflammation of the veins in the lower rectum and anus. It is very similar to varicose veins, however, the severity of pain and discomfort is more.

Hemorrhoids are common. Out of every 4 adults, 3 will have it at some point in time. In most of the individuals, hemorrhoids go on their own. However, there are people in which it may become severe and requires surgical intervention for treatment. A surgery conducted to remove the painful external and internal hemorrhoids is also known as hemorrhoidectomy.

The diagnosis of hemorrhoids can be made with the help of the following:

  • Physical examination
  • Digital examination
  • Visual inspection through anoscope, proctoscope, or sigmoidoscope
  • Colonoscopy (in severe cases of another digestive disorder)

Different treatment options are available. Therefore, surgery is not always an option. Home remedies such as eating fiber-rich foods, taking pain relievers and using topical treatments are usually the first line of treatment.

Thrombectomy and minimally invasive procedures such as rubber band ligation, sclerotherapy, and coagulation are also an option. Hem

The following are some of the indications for hemorrhoids surgery:

  • Severe and recurring hemorrhoids
  • Multiple internal as well as external hemorrhoids
  • Prolapsed and bleeding hemorrhoids

In a surgical hemorrhoidectomy, the patient is given general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. In some cases, spinal anesthesia may be used. Using one of the available excision techniques, the excessive tissue causing bleeding and prolapse are removed.

Patients need to let their severity of pain decide how soon they can return to normal activities. Initially, bending, sitting, lifting an object, and squatting may feel painful. Therefore, you are requested to keep movement limited at least for a week after the surgery. Gradually, you can increase activities depending on the reduction in pain.

It is common for patients to experience some bleeding after the procedure. A small amount is not a cause of worry, however, large pools of blood should be reported to the treating doctor. Bleeding may occur while passing stool as well initially 2 to 3 days after the surgery.
