Reading On Hemorrhoid Surgery

By Julia H. Jeff

Hemorrhoid surgery is the last line of defense against hemorrhoids. Most hemorrhoids can be treated and cured with more conservative treatments such as the oral medication and application of ointments, but others must be dealt with surgically. In almost all cases, herbs may be able to provide the solution. Look through all pages of this web site and gain a firm understanding of how and which herbs can be used to cure hemorrhoids as well as to soothe them.

Most of the physicians suggest surgery only in cases where the hemorrhoids are very painful and are likely to cause further complications; thus, leaving surgery the only choice. The main objective of surgery is to give early relief and avoid possible future complications. Mainly patients with prolapsed hemorrhoids are advised to undergo hemorrhoid surgery. Hemorrhoids surgery comes in about a half dozen varieties, using methods like injection, cauterization, freezing, laser and infrared light. One hemorrhoid treatment uses rubber bands and another uses staples. Usually, your doctor will suggest to you a solution that is dependent on their background experience and training, as well as the symptoms of your hemorrhoids.

In fact, most of the hemorrhoids do not require surgery. Surgery may be done if other treatments such as home treatment have failed. Surgery is also considered when symptoms become so bothersome that your lifestyle becomes affected or when hemorrhoids create a medical emergency, such as uncontrolled bleeding or blood and pus at the anus along with severe rectal pain.

External hemorrhoids usually are not removed with surgery or also known as hemorrhoidectomy, except if they are very massive and uncomfortable or if you are having surgery on the anal area for another reason, such as internal hemorrhoids or a tear or anal fissure. Surgical removal of hemorrhoids or hemorrhoidectomy is a last resort for curing small internal hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoidectomy is considered the most successful way to cure large internal hemorrhoids, especially those that are still a problem after treatments that cut off blood flow to hemorrhoids or fixative procedures have been tried. Occasionally, increased pressure on external hemorrhoids brings about them to break and bleed. This causes a lump thrombosed, or clotted, hemorrhoid to outline. You may suffer from severe pain at the site of the clotted hemorrhoid.

A method to relieve the pain can be performed in a health professional’s office or outpatient clinic. The health professional applies local anesthesia and then makes a small incision where the lump has occurred to remove the clot and reduce pressure and pain. The procedure works best if it is done less than 4 or 5 days after the clot has formed. If the pain is tolerable, you may choose to wait to see a doctor. The soreness usually goes away in a few days. After 4 or 5 days, the soreness from cutting and draining the hemorrhoid is usually worse than the pain from the clot.

When you have exhausted all of the possible means of natural treatment for hemorrhoids and still no good results have occurred, then it is time for you to consider hemorrhoid surgery . This may be expensive but can definitely eradicate your hemorrhoids.

Consult your physician if you are considering undergoing hemorrhoid surgery . Even though this will cost you valuable money, you will absolutely have a satisfactory guarantee of your investment.
