Hemorrhoids Surgery – What is Involved

doctor8Hemorrhoids are caused by too much pressure on the blood vessels leading up to the anus.

A swelling of the veins occurs and causes varicose veins somewhere around the anal cavity. As part of the treatment, sometimes hemorrhoids surgery is involved.

Causes:

They are usually caused by big pressure forced upon the rectum or anus often from (but not limited to) constipation.

Heavy lifting, and remaining seated for very long periods of time. These things can all put stress on the rectal/anal area and cause veins to bulge.

Hemorrhoids are both inside and above the anus (internal) or under the skin around the anus (external).  Piles arise from congestion of internal and/or external venous plexuses around the anal canal.

According to studies, not only your diet, but your physical activities too affect your chances of being constipated or not. As we all know, forcing hard stool from the anal canal causes hemorrhoid swelling, commonly called “hemorrhoids”.

If you want to avoid having swollen and bleeding hemorrhoids, you can conduct exercises. Hemorrhoid exercises are also called Kegel exercises and basically, they improve the muscle walls of your digestive tract.

Most pregnant women do these exercises to strengthen their vaginal muscles in preparation for giving birth. All you have to do is to pretend that you’re trying to hold your urine for a few seconds before letting go.

What Are The Options:

The removal of the external hemorrhoids by surgery is called a  hemorrhoidectomy. This process involves cutting out the hemroids and unfortunately it can be painful.

If you’ve suffered from ruptured hemorrhoids, you’ll know how painful it is to have these veins constantly rupturing and swelling up whenever you suffer from constipation. Usually, only people between 45 to 56 years old suffer from hemorrhoid swelling and bleeding.

Before surgical treatments became popular, people suffering from serious hemorrhoid problems usually opted for hemorrhoid stapling. This method first came about in the early 1990s, but it didn’t last as a popular hemorrhoid swelling treatment because it resulted in quite a number of long term risks.

Back then, patients chose stapling over surgery because it was said to be less painful than the surgical removal of the bleeding hemorrhoid. However, after a few years of this non-surgical treatment, patients have gone back to their surgeons complaining about other developed complications.

This is the reason why medical experts today prefer surgical removal for hemorrhoids instead of the stapling.

Infrared Coagulation

If your hemorrhoids are diagnosed as small or medium sized, it can be easily treated with an infrared coagulation treatment.

This method is also referred to as “photocoagulation” and it is usually done using an intense beam of infrared light to target scar tissues on your anal canal. The only downside to this treatment is that it’s a bit slow-paced.

Only one hemorrhoid can be treated at any one time that this procedure is carried out. You should expect slight pain while this procedure is being done and a “full sensation” on your lower abdomen. Anal bleeding is also normal 7 to 10 days after the procedure.

 Hemorrhoid Banding:

However, with the lack of fiber in our diets today, it’s also easy for individuals in their 30s or even in their 20s to suffer from the same medical condition.  Banding is one of the many non-surgical treatments available today.

This is done by putting a right band (or rubber band) around the hemorrhoid to stop it from bleeding. Once the bleeding stops, the surgeon will then remove the blood clot, or let the hemorrhoids heal on its own. This procedure is to help you get back to relief from hemorrhoids and better daily living.

The healing process is managed by a combination of stool softeners combined with a diet of high fiber foods. This is to ensure there is no straining during bowel movements.

While this is a popular  treatment, it’s usually reserved for more severe cases of hemorrhoid inflammations. If it’s your first time to experience  bleeding and the affected area is at the tip of the anal canal, you can probably treat it with over-the-counter creams.
