Laser Hemorrhoidectomy: Post Operative Care

Laser Hemorrhoidectomy: Post Operative Care
  • After surgery, the patient is taken to the Room. The nursing staff closely monitors the patient.
  • Because of swelling and the dressing, some patients have temporary difficulty in urinating. If there is urgency, but the urine will not flow, the medical staff will use a catheter to empty the bladder. Outpatients may need to stay overnight if they are unable to urinate. Patients must be able to urinate on their own before the discharge.
  • Even though the anesthesia has worn off, most patients remain groggy for the rest of the day. Patients must arrange for a family member or friend to be with them if they are being discharged the same day as the surgery.
  • Patients experience pain and discomfort during the immediate postoperative period (i.e., about 10 days). Pain medication is prescribed and should be taken as directed.
  • Nausea & Vomiting may occur but usually, subside in first 24 hours of surgery.
  • An ice pack can help reduce swelling. Soaking in a sitz bath (a shallow bath of warm water) several times a day helps ease the discomfort.
  • It is important to avoid constipation at this time so, the physician will prescribe stool softeners and a laxative. Eating a high-fiber diet and drinking plenty of liquids also helps. A small to moderate amount of bleeding, usually when having a bowel movement, may occur for a week or two following the surgery. This is normal and should stop when the anus and rectum heal.
  • Complete recovery takes 6 weeks to 2 months. Most patients return to work within 10 days. Patients should avoid heavy lifting for 2 to 3 weeks.
