what's the recovery time for hemorrhoid surgery?

Varies: Get the specifics from your surgeon. The nature/ complexity of surgery, any complication postoperatively, and the most unpredictable of all - individual factors can all impact your recovery. I have patients back to normal in 1 wk and some will take a month to feel normal.
