Things You Must Know About Piles!

M.S
General Surgeon, Rajkot
Things You Must Know About Piles!

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 blood vessels are inflamed or expanded in the anal canal. Veins in and around the anus and rectum are comparatively weak than the arteries which are quiet intense. 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. There are two kinds of Piles the internal piles and the external piles; the discomfort and severity depend on the kind of piles you are suffering from.

Causes behind it
The causes of hemorrhoids are not certain and anyone can get affected by the condition. It is more prevalent in elderly people and pregnant women. Sometimes, the condition is also hereditary, so if your parents or grandparents suffered from piles, there is a possibility that you may develop it too. When the veins in the anal region are subjected to pressure, the veins swell causing painful hemorrhoids.

The common symptoms associated with the condition are:
- Bleeding from the anus
- Painful lump or swell near the anus
- Anal itching
- Tenderness or pain during bowel movements
- Mucus 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, second and third-degree, medications, home remedies and manual methods are preferred approaches. However, when the condition persists for an extended period with severe pain it is best to consider your physician.

The piles can be treated with:
- Injection or sclerotherapy: Treats internal hemorrhoids
- Banding: Treatment for prolapsed hemorrhoids
- Coagulation: Treatment using laser
- Surgery: Opted for in severe cases of hemorrhoids

Surgery is suggested when no other remedies for piles have responded. In the case of prolapsed hemorrhoids, or the fourth degree and higher degree, surgical methods need to be implemented. In common, surgery is deemed as the last option for piles treatment. Piles surgery is prescribed particularly by the surgeons in the situation where pain becomes unbearable.

The surgical treatments
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 general anesthesia. 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 but then it can even take as long as five to six weeks to get back to normal pain-free life again.
PPH: Another surgical method is PPH. It is also known as stapled hemorrhoidectomy. In this surgery, the physician 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, few or no complications, minor itching, and bleeding.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Measures You Must Take Post Surgery of Hemorrhoids

M.S
General Surgeon, Rajkot
Measures You Must Take Post Surgery of Hemorrhoids

Have you ever faced difficulty or experienced severe pain while defecation? Well, this is a widespread phenomenon amongst many, but most of them feel shy to discuss this problem. Different People differently understand the term Piles. For some, it is the name given to the uneasiness or pain that one feels during defecation and for others, it might be blood found along with feces. This notion is partially correct. Piles, also known as Hemorrhoids, are vascular structures that are present in the anal canal.

These vascular structures are like cushions that help with stool control. The problem arises when these structures become swollen. Post inflammation of hemorrhoids leads to the ultimate problem. Piles become painful which is unbearable for many while a few people don’t feel much pain but bleeding characterizes the disease. Around 10% of patients having Piles problem require surgical treatment, but they are unaware of the measures needed before opting for a hemorrhoid surgery.

Hemorrhoidectomy

The operation that is used to remove hemorrhoids is known as Hemorrhoidectomy. In this surgery, a local or general anesthesia is given to the patient so that the affected area gets numb and the patient doesn’t feel much pain. The doctors make perform a procedure around the anus to get rid of the hemorrhoids. As the anus area is susceptible, stitches might be required. Patients can go home the same day, but intensive care is needed. It might take around two weeks to get normal, in some cases, it may also extend to 6 weeks.

Cure Piles in 15 Minutes (BIEM)-

 

‘Biological Impendence Electrical auto-Measurement’ (BIEM) concept is a smart and advanced technology that able to produce controlled ‘tissues fusion’ without causing any carbonation. This technology is being aggressively develop and incorporated into the variety of modern surgery.

The major advantages of this technology is no bleeding, no open wound, no risk of infection and less pain as the nerve fibers is sealed in the tissues fusion. The new tissues growth will take place from inside and the dry and hard zone will take off itself when tissues healed up. 

Measures to be taken post hemorrhoid surgery

The surgery is extremely safe, however, like all surgeries, there are certain precautions that need to be taken in order to avoid post-op infection or reaction to anesthesia. People mostly complain about the severe pain that they feel while defecating and might also be accompanied by irritation or itchiness in the treated area. These symptoms are normal, but if the irritation or itchiness becomes severe or excessive bleeding becomes frequent, then consult your doctor immediately.

Fever or difficulty while defecating should also be reported to the doctor if it continues to be a problem after surgery. For the recovery phase, your doctor might prescribe the use of some pain killers along with the usage of some stool softeners. Taking a warm bath might also lower down the pain.

Usually, the doctors prescribe a healthy diet before and after hemorrhoidectomy surgery. But the measures might differ from case to case. A few common after and before care measures include diet changes, lifestyle changes, and adopting a regular exercise program. These three steps will not only help in speedy recovery but also reduce the chances of hemorrhoids recurring.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have few questions regarding uterine polyps: 1. Can unmarried women develop polyps and can they be removed non surgically? 2. In what circumstances or size of polyp does it require to undergo a surgery. Does fertility get affected by surgery? 3. What is the average cost of undergoing hysteroscopy polypectomy in metropolitan cities?

M.S
General Surgeon, Rajkot
Intrauterine polyps need to be removed. Not removing it may affect fertility, rather than a surgery. So, go ahead & get it removed. Consult a good gynecologist.

Caring For Your Stitches Post Surgery!

M.S
General Surgeon, Rajkot
Caring For Your Stitches Post Surgery!

Any surgery that requires an incision will involve sutures or staples as the last step of the procedure. This helps close the incision and keep out infections. Taking care of your stitches can help limit scarring and discomfort and speed up the healing process. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Keep it clean and dry: For the first few days, use a washed wet cloth to clean the incision site. After a few days, you may start washing the area with soap and water unless advised else wise by your doctor. Ensure that you dry the skin thoroughly after washing it. Avoid baths that involve soaking the area in water. Also, avoid swimming. Do not use any powders, lotions, creams, deodorants etc on the wound site.
  2. Look out for signs of infections: Avoid activities that may involve exposing your wound to dirty water, chemicals, dust etc. This increases your risk of infections. Also look out for signs f infections such as redness, swelling, pus or bleeding, fever or increased pain from the wound. In case you notice such signs, consult your doctor at the earliest.
  3. Do not scratch: As it heals, your skin is likely to turn itchy. However, refrain from scratching so as to reduce chances of infections. Do not try and pull away from the scab but let it fall off on its own. This will also help limit scarring.
  4. Limit contact: Avoid wearing tight clothes or anything that sticks to the skin while your wound is healing. Instead have plenty of loose, comfortable clothes easily accessible. Also, do not take part in close contact sports such as football etc until the stitches have healed completely.
  5. Change your dressing regularly: A dressing should be changed as soon as it gets wet or soaked with blood or other body fluids. Wear clean medical gloves while changing a dressing. When putting on a new dressing do not touch the inside of the dressing or apply any creams on the stitches unless advised so by your doctor. In the case of removable stitches, the doctor will usually remove the stitches after a few days. DO not attempt to pull the stitches out on your own.
  6. Avoid exposing the wound to sunlight: New skin that forms as the incision heals is very sensitive to sunlight and gets sunburnt very easily. Limiting your exposure to sunlight can help reduce the effects of scarring.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
