Hemorrhoidectomy survival tips?

Postby chachacha » 28 Nov 2017, 11:56

I will be going under the knife next month, and have read all of the hemorrhoidectomy-related posts on this site.

If you have any suggestions on how to handle the pain, or things to do (or NOT do), I'd really appreciate any and all advice out there!

I hope all goes off well for you chachacha. It sounds like a scary surgery but I hope you'll have a quick recovery. Do ask your doctor if dilation is recommended after the surgery as I've read in several places that it helps prevent any canal narrowing down the line.

Yes, stenosis is one of the risks, so I will ask. Thanks for the good wishes.
