Painful hemorrhoids are a common medical condition, affecting more than half of the people in some point of their lives. Hemorrhoids usually don’t take a drastic form requiring a surgery of some kind and are treatable with non-invasive methods. More than that – in a fact every human is born with a few haemorrhoids which just do not cause any pain. However, due to some patients’ negligence or other factors affecting the growth of hemmorhoids, a surgery called hemorrhoidectomy may be necessary. There are many types of hemorrhoid treatment. Proctologist’s decision regarding the type of hemorrhoid surgery suitable for a patient is dictated by their medical condition and whether patient’s problem is an internal hemorrhoid or an external hemorrhoid.
Patients whose hemorrhoids do not get better with more traditional, non-invasive hemorrhoid treatments should consider visiting proctologist who will decide whether a hemorrhoidectomy is necessary or not. People with irregular bowel movements caused for example by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) have a stronger tendency from long-time hemorrhoid pain, however, it is not a rule. There are also several other causes of hemorrhoids becoming painful and bleeding.
If you have painful hemorrhoids for an extended period of time, most probably you are eligible to undergo hemorrhoid surgery. Obstacles to have hemorrhoidectomy may include:
• Other medical condition, which can affect the hemorrhoid surgery recovery as well as patients’ reaction to anaesthesia.
• Intake of medicines which may affect the results of hemorrhoidectomy.
As with many surgeries, it is recommended to visit your proctologist and inform about all medical conditions you suffer from as well as all medicines you take. In this way, proctologist may decide whether the hemorrhoidectomy is feasible in your case. Blood thinners such as aspirin should not be used for some time before a hemorrhoid surgery. Additionally, you will be asked to fast for 6-12 hours before a hemorrhoid removal.
There are few types of hemorrhoidectomy, including:
• Closed hemorrhoidectomy – proctologist removes hemorrhoid with a scalpel or other device and then closes the wound with stitches.
• Open hemorrhoidectomy – doctor performs hemorrhoid removal but leaves the wound open in order to avoid complications.
• Sometimes closed and open hemorrhoid surgeries are combined in order to achieve best results.
• Stapled hemorrhoidectomy – instead of excising the hemorrhoids, proctologist decides to staple them back into their place in the anal canal. This surgery is thought to be less painful than the others but carries a bigger risk of hemorrhoids’ reoccurrence.
• Rubber band ligation – hemorrhoid banding may be a good way of dealing with some hemorrhoids. The band cuts out the blood supply to hemorrhoid, causing it to dwindle in size.
There are also other techniques of hemorrhoid surgery such as lateral internal sphincterotomy but they do not enjoy as much popularity among proctologists.
Overnight stay is not required
5 to 14 days
You will be able to go home right after your hemorrhoid removal surgery, however, it is recommended that somebody should take you there due to effects of anaesthesia. You will feel some pain especially within first two weeks after hemorrhoidectomy but this should be manageable with painkillers prescribed by your doctor. You will be advised to take warm baths. Light bleeding after a hemorrhoid treatment is normal and you should not be worried about it. As for your diet, try to avoid fiber-rich food during first days after treatment of hemorrhoids.
There are some risks related to hemorrhoid surgery, including excessive bleeding, infections, reopening of hemorrhoid and problems with defecation and urination. As soon as you spot such problems, you should contact your proctologist. However, it is important to say that these occurrences are rather rare. Most of the patients who undergo hemorrhoidectomy do not complain about any complications.
The most important side effect of hemorrhoid surgery, no matter whether internal hemorrhoids treatment or external hemorrhoid removal, is a certain amount of pain experienced throughout first two weeks or even longer, However, with painkillers given by a proctologist, it should be totally manageable.
The highest success rate belongs to the most painful type of hemorrhoidectomy – open hemorrhoidectomy. It ends with success in 95% of cases. Other types of hemorrhoid removal are less successful and more often result in reappearance of hemorrhoids within a few years.
