Piles - Possible Ways That Can Help Treat It!

Piles - Possible Ways That Can Help Treat It!

Are you feeling an excruciating pain in the anal region? Is there a lump around the area that you can feel? Commonly called Piles, hemorrhoids is a phenomenon where the veins are swollen in the anal canal. This is because the walls of the veins are pretty thin and pain or discomfort arises when there is too much pressure on the walls. This pressure occurs most commonly due to constipation or passage of hard stool. 

There are two kinds of Piles- internal piles and the external piles; the discomfort and severity depend on the kind of piles you are suffering from. 

Causes behind it: 

  1. Constipation, i.e hard stool is the most common cause for piles. This can occur when you eat food with less fiber like junk food, breads and non-veg. Also low water intake can cause constipation. 
  2. Sitting for long hours can also cause piles. 
  3. Piles can also happen in the third trimester of pregnancy

The common symptoms associated with the condition are: 

  1. Bleeding from the anus 
  2. Painful lump or swelling near the anus 
  3. Anal itching 
  4. Tenderness or pain during bowel movements 
  5. Anal discharge 

Treatment options for piles 
In few cases, the Hemorrhoids can be treated with home remedies like a change in diet, warm sitz baths, and avoiding foods that may lead to constipation. For hemorrhoids of the first and second degree, medications, home remedies and manual methods can be used. However, when the condition persists for an extended period with severe pain or bleeding, it is best to consult a surgeon. 

The piles can be treated with: 
Injection or sclerotherapy:
Treats internal hemorrhoids 
Banding: Treatment for early stage hemorrhoids 
Surgery: Open surgery, stapled surgery or Laser 

Hemorrhoidectomy: This is the surgery done to remove piles. The physician performs a few minute cuts around the anus to remove them away. The area which is under operation is put under local or spinal anesthesia

  • Recovery: Hemorrhoidectomy is often a procedure for the outpatient case, and you are typically discharged on the same day itself. The patient usually takes about two to three weeks to recover fully. 
  • PPH: Another surgical method is PPH. It is also known as stapled hemorrhoidectomy. In this surgery, the surgeon uses a device which looks like a stapler to reposition the pile and struck off their supply of blood so that they eventually shrink and die out. This surgical procedure is less painful than traditional hemorrhoidectomy as it removes hemorrhoid to where there are fewer nerve endings, so it hurts less. There will be faster recovery, minor pain and slight bleeding. 

Laser for Piles- 
With the advent of laser treatment, piles treatment has become very easy, pain free and effective. Laser fiber is used to coagulate i.e. close the swollen blood vessels that form piles. This is done in an area with very few nerves so it is almost painless. It can be done under local or spinal anesthesia as a day care procedure. Patient can be discharged on the same day and can resume work after just 1 or 2 days.

You need to go for surgery. It is a very simple laparoscopic i.e. Key hole operation. You will not have much pain or bedrest or any problem. Do not wait for long time. Get operation done early.

Appendectomy - Things That Can Help You Recover Fast!

Appendectomy - Things That Can Help You Recover Fast!

What is an Appendectomy? 
An appendectomy (which is sometimes referred to ‘appendicectomy’) is the surgical removal of the organ known as the appendix. Appendectomy is mostly performed as an emergency surgical procedure, when patients suffer from appendicitis

How is Appendectomy Performed? 
Appendectomy can be performed both as an open operation as well as laparoscopically. Nowadays it is most commonly performed laparoscopically with small incisions to reduce pain and quicken recovery. 

Conventional Open Appendectomy- 
In the conventional open surgery, the surgeon makes an incision which is about 2.5- 3 inches in length in the lower right section of the abdomen. Once the infected appendix is identified, the surgeon separates the infected appendix from its surrounding tissues and removes it surgically from the cecum (first part of large intestine).

The muscle layers and the skin are sewn together and the incision is closed. 

Laparoscopic Appendectomy (LA)- 
While performing appendectomy laparoscopically, 2 or 3 incisions of 0.5 or 1 cm length are made in the abdomen. The surgeon then passes the camera and special laparoscopy instruments through these openings and the appendix is removed from the cecum and the site of its former attachment is sewed. The infected appendix is removed from the body. In the end, the laparoscopic instruments are removed and the incisions are sutured and closed. During this whole procedure, the intraperitoneal space is filled with medical grade carbon dioxide gas, to inflate the abdomen, which is released after the surgery. 75810

Recovery Time For Appendectomy- 
With the advent of laparoscopy, recovery is very fast and patients can be discharged on the same day. They need to avoid any heavy exercise and oily and spicy food for a few days. They can resume work in a day or two. 

Risks and complications of Appendicitis and Appendectomy 
A routine appendectomy has very few complications. As appendix is not essential for digestion, there is no change in physiology. A ruptured appendix can sometimes give high fever, pus formation and intra-abdominal infection. Hence it is essential to treat appendicitis early. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Laser is good as it is painless. But you need to see a surgeon first to know the grade of hemorrhoids.

Hi this is yesuraj. My question is how to find out the cancer in early stages and also how to prevent those cancers completely.

MBBS, DNB - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
All cancers cannot be detected at early stages. Maintaining normal weight, eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly and avoiding alcohol, smoking, tobacco will help you remain healthy and prevent most cancers. After age of 40 go for yearly health check ups. Also see your doctor for any problems.

You need to see a surgeon and go for laparoscopic or keyhole surgery yo remove gall bladder and stones. No it cannot be treated with medications. You will keep forming new stones. Stones may also slip and give jaundice or pancreatitis.
