Want to undergo high resolution anoscopy with ablation. Does healing time depend on ablation aspect?

I am having a medical procedure , High Resolution Anoscopy w/ ablasion. I am wondering the healing time involved with the ablasion aspect of this procedure. I realize that the healing time will depend on how much ablasion is required but is there some average I can expect. I am concerned with the healing time as a gay male.

Thanks for posting your query to HCM.
As per your query the following things will be depending upon following aspects:
1. Number of growths
2. Size of growth
3. Depth of growth
4. Your health status / immune status
Now as per above the most important factors would be last three. On an average a healthy man requires 7-10 days for proper healing but it would be better told by the surgeon under whom your treatment is going on. Even though you should not resume your sexual activity for at least 2-4 weeks period ( or as advised by your doctor) for best healing and self protection. Also stop any substance or drug abuse. You should take a lot of vitamins and minerals in form of fruits and green leafy vegetables for improving your healing power.
Have a healthy life.
With best health wishes,
Dr Sanjay K Kanodia
