Piles Surgery

What is Piles?

The condition in which the blood vessels in and around the anus and lower rectum get swollen and inflamed is called piles. Sometimes the passing bowel movements irritate and stretch the vein walls, which lead to their swelling.

The symptoms are:

  • Anal bleeding (bright red colour)
  • Pain or tenderness during defecation
  • Hard lump close to the anus
  • Itching of the anus
  • Mucous discharge from the anus

What causes Piles?

  • Piles (haemorrhoids) can affect anybody after a certain age. Piles are observed more frequently among older people and during pregnancy.
  • Excessive abdominal pressure may lead to the swelling of the veins, which in turn can cause piles.
  • Obesity, sitting for a long time, pregnancy, excessive straining during defecation, heavy strenuous physical activity, coughing, and sneezing may be the reasons for the extreme pressure that can lead to piles.
  • Risk of piles increases in the population that fancies processed foods diet.

More Information on Piles Surgery

Indication

A candidate who is suffering from the following conditions for a prolonged period of time.

  • Substantial bleeding
  • Incapability to urinate
  • Fever
  • Incapability to defecate
Pre-Procedure
  • A general practitioner can be consulted or treatment can be availed from the pharmacies. There are creams that help reduce the swelling and ease the pain.
  • Warm bath for around 15 minutes in a day for quite a number of times can treat piles.
  • Pain can be relieved by taking painkillers.
  • Laxatives can be used in case you are suffering from constipation
  • Injection can be given which may cease the haemorrhoid to a considerable extent.
  • Rubber-band ligation can also used to remove prolapsed haemorrhoids to close off its blood supply thoroughly.
  • The end of the haemorrhoid can be sealed off by using laser or an electric probe.
  • Very painful internal haemorrhoids can be treated by surgery called haemorrhoidectomy.
During-Procedure

Haemorrhoidectomy is performed where incisions are made around the anus in order to cut the haemorrhoids away. Local or general anaesthesia may be given during the surgery.

An invasive procedure is often performed to let the haemorrhoid slip out of the anal canal. The blood supply of the haemorrhoid is cut off by a procedure similar to stapling. This process is less painful and the recovery is quicker while the complications are minimal.

Rubber band ligation

Laser treatment

A chemical is injected that leads to the shrinking of the haemorrhoid. This process is known as sclerotherapy.

Post-Procedure
  • The recovery time is around 2 weeks post-surgery
  • In some cases full recovery might require 6 weeks. Keep your stools soft so that they can be excreted easily
  • Keep a high fibre diet
  • Have plenty of fluids
  • Take supplements like Citrucel or Metamucil
Risk and Complication
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
