Good day. My mommy had the haemorrhoid banding Op today. She is in a lot of pain and would like to know until when she will be experiencing it and if there are any over the counter pain medication she can buy that will help her.

In brief: Normal

Normal to have some postop pain especially on the day of surgery itself.
The surgeon should have given her medicine prescription for pain. Dont take any over the counter without talking to surgeon.
