She has an external haemorrhoid protruding from her anus. Painful defecation. Pain persists for more than 6 hrs after that. Ointment and betadine hot water therapy not giving much relief. Free t3, t4, tsh tests ok. Stool test ok. Very small quantity of blood observed in stool. What are the options for treatment? If surgery is required, how long will it take to heal, how painful will it be and how much would it cost?

Dear lybrate-userfirst of all we need to make sure if it is an external haemorrhoid or a fissure with an anal tag causing the pain and bleeding. The treatment for these two are different. The recovery usually takes a couple of days after surgery. Let a surgical gastroenterologist see the patient and confirm the diagnosis.
