Recurrent fissure with bleeding and hemorrhoids. Suggested surgery. Advice? - Online Doctor Chats
This is to talk about Hemorrhoids
Pls go ahead
I will tell my history about it first
Its almost 8-10 years when it was occured. It used to lead to bleeding and my family doctor prescribed me medicines which I used to take for 5-7 days and the problem was over. This would come once in 1-2 years
3 years back, i got fissure (which was v v painful) and some v XXXXXXX doctors in delhi advised surgery. One doc suggested Sit Baths and some medicines and I was fine in 15-20 days
Now after 3 years I have got Hemorrhoid which is not painful. I went to the same doc and he advised same treatment of sit baths. He now told me that since it didnt work, he would advise surgery
I dont have pain and I am still continuing with sit baths and I dont want to undergo any surgery
I understand you
i am v confused what to do
We can try all the conservative methods ( sitz bath, high fibre food, losening stools) and when they are depleted or ineffective the last resort to surgery
Moreover if you have symptoms frequently losing blood, having pain , unable to lead quality of life you can go for surgery
But since you have them once in two to three years you can still manage with conservative approach
Your doctor cannot force you
A point to be noted is, the frequency of the symptoms will increase as you age and would not reduce
So when you find that your daily routine or life is painful you can opt for surgery
It is very simple and non painful, one day surgery
yes thats what i want but just fear that i dont spoil it further by not listening to the doctor
I would not be able to tell you how large are the hemorrhoids but what is important is the symptom
and my only worry is that if i dont undergo surgery, it does not lead to any complications leater. My plan at the moment us to do sitz bath for even a month, eat no junk and eat high fiber food
Sometimes they are large but you would not bother
The surgery can be done at any time
R u based in Delhi ?
when they are enlarged
I am in Bangalore
3 years back when I was told about surgery, I went to 3 Top Most hospitals in Delhi and all three doctors told me different surgical procedures
Trust me these are big brand hospitals
but damaged patient's confidence
when all of them say different things (only common thing was advising surgery)
so in this highly commercialised industry, you real wonder where to get operated from (in case surgery is only option)
u there ??
The procedure depends on the technology they have
do you have any advise on which type of surgery or how to pick doctor & hospitals
and the expertise they possess
Finally the difference of outcome are marginal
I would suggest if you have insurance and is paying better to opt for the latest technique
i have insurance
so i would want to go for the best
any advise there ?
The technique also depends on the location and the size
its at 3 o clock
and an 0.5 to 1 inch big
You can go for Laser hemorrhoidectomy
how long does it take after the surgery to start work again
i travel for 3-4 hours in car a day, in a sales job
Very quick in two days
Sclerotherpy is good option as well
this technique is different than laser ?
Yeah laser beam is used there, chemical solution to burn the hemorrhoid in sclerotherapy
Both burn the hemorrhoid
Also on TV, Sony channel they show an ayurvedic medicine - Arshkalp claiming guarantee for no surgery.......would you be having knowledge on that OR your Ayurvedic collegues if any in your organisation
YOu can post your query under 'Ask A Specialist' for Ayurveda
since u now know my case and If I need to chat again later (in a week or later)- is there a way i can reach you for chatting directly ??
You can ask for my name on the chat once the doctor picks it
If I am not available, you can use the other service 'Get a Call from Doctor' and mention my name they will connect in few minutes
if surgery is needed, would you be able to advise doc and hospital in delhi (like the best :) )
ok then..bye for now........hope I dont need to chat again and I get well else I will come back..............Many thanks
All the best of health
Bye for now
