After Hemorrhoid Surgery
Yes: If you are not in much pain, you can resume most daily activities. You may find you are swollen and sore at the end of a long day on your feet. I would avoid any strenuous exercise for another week or two.

Usually not: Unless you job requires prolonged standing or heavy lifting (over 25 pounds) going back to work in a week should be okay. You can help the doctor determine by how you feel and your knowledge of what the job requires. You may still have a sense of urgency, so the availability of toilet facilities may also detern=mine how soon you return to work.See 1 more doctor answer
Recovery: During recovery from rectal hemorrhoid surgery it is okay for some bleeding. Check with your surgery team, they will know best your limits. In the meantime hold pressure for 10 minutes while lying down.
I am not aware: That there would be any specific sleeping position that would assist in reducing the discomforts after hemorrhoid surgery.
Hemorrhoid complicat: One of the complications of hemorrhoid surgery is incontinence to feces or gas. This occurs if the muscles of the anal sphincter are excessively stretched or cut during the surgery. The incontinence may be temporary or permanent depending on the type of injury.See 1 more doctor answer
After hemorrhoid surgery approximately how long before bowel movements return to normal and what is the best diet for after surgery?
One of the major: Determinants is whether you have general anesthesia or not (anesthetics paralyze bowel) and how many narcotic pain killers you take afterward. Many doctors advise starting stool softeners/fiber supplements before surgery. Stay super well-hydrated. Prune or apple juice may be helpful; raw veggies, while good for fiber, may be painful to pass. Two weeks, 3 at outside, and all should be good:)
I have to take fiber supplements after hemorrhoid surgery and Metamucil is causing me a lot of pain (bloating and cramps). What's the alternative?

What is the difference between anusol ointment and cream?! Can I continue taking iron tablets after a hemorrhoids surgery? When can I have sex?
See below: No substantial difference between ointment and cream. You may continue taking iron tablets as prescribed by your doctor. You may have sex when you are ready and feel like having it. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Very: Depending on the procedure. Rubber banding in the office for smaller internal hemorrhoids works well. Surgical excision or hemorrhoid stapling for larger combined internal & external hemorrhoids very effective with low risk of recurrence.
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.
Depends: There are several types of hemorrhoid operations that are tailored depending on the severity of your hemorrhoids and whether they are internal, external or both. Internal hemorrhoids can be addressed with less pain and short recovery. External or large complex hemorrhoids require more work in the anal canal where there are more nerves causing more pain for longer.
Simetimes: Hemmorrhoidectomy is a painful procedure but for patients who have not improved despite maximal medical therapy it may offer definitive treatment. Expect 2 weeks of sugnificang discomfort after surgery.See 1 more doctor answer

Depends: There are different ways hemorrhoids are treated. Internal hemorrhoids are treated by banding them with a rubber band. Painless with some cramping. Large external hemorrhoids removal is painful. Large hemorrhoids that prolapse or protrude can be treated with a stapling technique. A very well tolerated procedure. Surgery for hemorrhoids should always be a last resort.See 2 more doctor answers
