Hemorrhoids are the result of blood vessels swelling up inside or outside of your rectum. Even though you can normally manage your hemorrhoids by eating a diet that is high in fiber and drinking plenty of water, you might also have to use stool softeners to help reduce any strain from going to the restroom. To deal with painful hemorrhoids and irritation, a hemorrhoidectomy is often required. You can schedule your hemorrhoidectomy at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you with I Need A Surgery.
Internal hemorrhoids might not cause any pain. They might bleed after you go to the bathroom, but they don’t become a problem until they are causing you to bleed heavily or prolapsing. With an external hemorrhoid, they can become irritated, itchy and painful after they are exposed. Another complication of these hemorrhoids occurs when blood clots develop in the vessel. Even though they aren’t life-threatening, they can cause severe pain.
An anesthetic will be given before the surgery. Depending on the type of anesthetic used, you might also be given a sedative to help with relaxation throughout the procedure. After the anesthesia kicks in, the surgeon will go in and cut out all of the hemorrhoids. Once the operation is complete, you are taken into a recovery room for a short period of time. After your vital signs are stable, you can go home.
Expect some degree of pain in your rectum following the surgery. A painkiller is often given to help with the pain. Consume a diet that is high in fiber. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. To prevent straining during a bowel movement, you should use a stool softener. Don’t do anything that involves pulling or lifting heavy objects. Sitz baths (or a hip bath) can often help to alleviate some discomfort. Within about two weeks, you can expect to be fully recovered.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $3,700, versus having to pay $37,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
