In case of complex fistula with long fistula tract, healing takes long time 1 month. But continous discharge beyond a time is considered recurrence. Consult your operative surgeon.

Colorectal Surgery: What Should You Know About It?

Colorectal Surgery: What Should You Know About It?

Colorectal surgery deals with the disorders of the rectum, anus and colon. Another name of colon is ‘large intestine’. These three body parts form the last stages of the digestive process. When the human waste passes through the colon, its salt and water are extracted before it exits the body as human excreta.

Colorectal disorders

  1. Swelling and inflammation of the veins in the anus (also called as Haemorrhoids)
  2. Anal fissures- unnatural cracks and fissures in the anal area
  3. Fistulas or the unnatural connections between the anus and other anorectal areas
  4. Conditions of constipation
  5. Incontinence in passing of faeces
  6. When the walls of the rectum protrude through the anus- also called as Rectal prolapse
  7. Birth defects such as imperforate anus
  8. Anal cancer- this condition is rare
  9. Colorectal cancer- cancer of colon and rectum
  10. Any injuries to the anus
  11. Removal of any objects inserted into the anus

Bowel habits after colorectal surgery
Many patients report cases of diarrhoea, leakage of stool or gas, urgency to use the toilet and a feeling of insufficient evacuation of faeces. Relax; these conditions are not going to last forever. Your rectum and anus are adjusting to new conditions after this surgery. These organs may take six to twelve months to adjust to new bowel habits.

Is there a need to take a laxative or stool softener?
There is no need to take laxatives after a colorectal surgery. Drink lots of water to make your stool softer and easy to pass. If there is a water deficiency in your body, then it may lead to your faeces becoming hard. In that case, take milk of magnesium, colace etc.

Activities post surgery
You can continue with your normal schedule after this surgical procedure. Carry on running, jogging, exercising, climbing up the stairs etc. even after your surgery. Gastroenterologists recommend that patients should desist from lifting loads weighing more than 10 pounds so that there are no post surgery complications.

Diet after colorectal surgery
Avoid spicy and heavy to digest meals after your surgery. Once the intestines begin working normally, you can continue having your spicy food. Chew your food well to aid its digestion.

Returning to work after colorectal surgery
Most people are back to their work after taking a break of 2-5 days. If the surgery is pretty detailed, you may have to take a break of up to a month. Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery may have to take a rest of 2- 4 weeks before they report back to work. Take it easy before slipping into your regular schedule. If working hurts after your surgery, don’t do it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Surgeon.

Gallstones do not dissolve by any medication, therefore surgery is the only answer. Lactation will not be disturbed by surgery which is done by Laparoscopic (Key hole) technique, so you will need to be in hospital only for one and half day.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. From an orthopaedic point of view, if you are experiencing pains without any associated swelling, skin discoloration, warmth etc, my advice to get some investigations done preferably empty stomach: cbc, esr, crp, serum potassium, serum vitamin d and thyroid profile. I will be able to advise you once I have these investigation reports with me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

MANAGEMENT - 1.A change in diet can help keep the stools regular and soft. 2. Eat more fiber, such as fruit and vegetables like carrot, cucumber, sprouts, and switching your cereal breakfast to bran. 3. Water is the best drink, so increase water consumption. 4. And avoid caffeine. Taking fibrous diet will reduce the incidence and severity of constipation. 5. Include ¼ Papaya in your diet daily. 6. Drink warm milk at night 7. Take early morning luke warm water with honey and lemon Homeopathic treatment should be started if above changes in diet plan doesn't gives relief. For homeopathic medicine, consult us.

hello. most likely it's an anal fissure. that's why pain and mild bleeding is there. usually conservative management with medicine and dietary precautions may heal fissures but sometimes surgery is required. you can consult online for medications and further queries. meanwhile avoid spicy food. drink lot of water and green vegetables. do sitz bath thrice a day. use laxative if constipation is there.
