Removal Of Enlarged Hemorrhoid Surgery
Removal of enlarged hemorrhoid surgery is usually done in a hospital or surgery center. You will either be put to sleep or given a spinal anesthetic so you don't feel pain during surgery. You will generally be able to go home the same day, as long as you can drink fluids without nausea, urinate, and walk around without fainting after hemorrhoid surgery.
During a hemorrhoidectomy, or removal of enlarged hemorrhoid surgery, the physician surgically cuts away the hemorrhoid. The incision will be closed with stitches. Following the surgery you will experience some pain and discomfort. You will need to keep the area clean in order to prevent infection.
You may be able to prevent hemorrhoids and thus the need for surgery. The best ways to prevent hemorrhoids are to avoid standing or sitting in one position for long periods of time and to avoid getting constipated. Eat a high fiber diet and drink plenty of fluids to prevent constipation.
If, despite your best efforts, you do get hemorrhoids, some simple home treatments could keep you from needing removal of enlarged hemorrhoid surgery. Sitting in a tub of warm water a couple of times a day or using hydrocortisone cream or suppositories usually relieves hemorrhoid symptoms within a few days.
There are also natural products made specifically to prevent and treat hemorrhoids. Natural products tend to have few side effects and to work well with your body's own healing mechanisms.
Following removal of enlarged hemorrhoid surgery, you will be given instructions on how to care for yourself. In general, post-op instructions will tell you:
How to take pain medication, including how much and how often.
How to take care of the surgical area by taking warm baths 3-4 times a day and using ice to keep the swelling down.
How to avoid constipation. This is extremely important; having a constipated bowel movement will be painful and could tear your stitches. Constipation could cause fainting after hemorrhoid surgery from the strain and could tear the stitches. You should try to eat a high fiber diet, drink plenty of fluids and take a stool softener every day for a while.
What activities to avoid and when you can resume your normal routine. Don't lift, push, pull or strain for a couple of weeks. This puts pressure on the rectal veins and can tear the stitches, which can cause bleeding and fainting after hemorrhoid surgery.
What to expect and what to watch for. A small amount of bleeding is normal, and it's normal to have quite a bit of pain for a few days after removal of enlarged hemorrhoid surgery. Call your doctor if you can't control the pain or if there is excessive bleeding. If you have a lot of bleeding and/or experience fainting after hemorrhoid surgery you should call 911 or go to the emergency room.
