Bleeding After Hemorrhoid Surgery-Hemorrhoid Surgery

Bleeding after hemorrhoid surgery is not very common, but it does happen to some people and we will look at how and when this happens. .

When the delicate veins in and around the anal canal and rectum strains due to various contributing causes, it results in hemorrhoids. Typically characterized by swollen veins, protruding growth from the anus, pain and itching, hemorrhoids can be extremely difficult to deal with.

Almost all the people suffering from hemorrhoids feel uncomfortable with the condition as it can be totally embarrassing when it starts bleeding.

Bleeding usually starts much before a hemorrhoid treatment surgery is done; people usually opt for alternative treatments or the conventional medications and drugs for relieving the symptoms of hemorrhoids.

If these attempts to solve the problem fail many people end up with hemorrhoid treatment surgery as the last resort for relieving the pain and discomfort. However, hemorrhoid surgery is sometimes not effective enough to control the condition.

While in most of the cases the symptoms of hemorrhoids usually clear up with medications and therapies, there are some worst cases that don’t respond to any of these treatments. In all such cases, different types of surgeries, including the most advanced laser hemorrhoid surgery can be done.

Hemorrhoid surgeries are not recommended for a particular reason – chances of recurring hemorrhoids increase with a surgery. This is one of the common reasons why doctors use this method only after they have tried every other option and have not been able to cure the condition.

There are quite a few hemorrhoid treatment surgeries available today, such as rubber band ligation, sclerotherpay, hemorrhoidectormy and laser surgery. Depending on the condition of the patient, a doctor will advise the best treatment that can cure the condition and prevent bleeding post surgery as well.

Just like every other type of surgery, hemorrhoids surgery also involves bleeding and pain; however, it is much easier to cope up with the condition and patients usually recover within a couple of days. A surgery basically helps in cutting off the hemorrhoid and removing it permanently, which should be a good way of eliminating this unwanted flesh from the body. Any surgery involves bleeding, pain and discomfort and the same applies to hemorrhoid surgeries as well.

While the time taken to recover form the surgery is not as long as any other surgical procedure, but a patient could take up to 10 days to get back to work. It becomes very difficult for the patient to sit or stand for long hours with a hemorrhoid and even without it after a surgery has been performed.
