Why Do You Need Professional Help With Your Hemorrhoids?
Do you feel discomfort, especially during bowel movements or when sitting? How about pain in the rectum, anal discomfort, swelling, or bleeding? These are common symptoms of hemorrhoids.
Symptoms of small hemorrhoids might disappear in just a few days, However chronic types of hemorrhoids can last longer with symptoms that might get worse.
Most of us will rely on home remedies before seeking help from a doctor or professional help. Usually, home remedies are helpful to relieve the usual symptoms and prevent them from getting worse.
Although you can find many treatments at your local pharmacy, home remedies don’t help everyone. There are some cases where you need to seek professional help to treat hemorrhoids.
Most common home remedies for hemorrhoids:
- Witch Hazel – may decrease bleeding and prevent infection by acting as astringent.
- Sitz bath – The person sits in a bath of warmed-up water for 10 or 20 minutes, it will reduce irritation and itching. Baking soda or Epsom salt should be put in the water to lower and soothe inflammation.
- Aloe Vera gel – as well as coconut oil, and vitamin E oil are natural remedy choices to soothe and reduce small hemorrhoids.
Normally home remedies should work with your hemorrhoids after a week of self-treatment. However, if you still experience discomfort in your anal area or have bleeding during bowel movement it is the right time to seek for professional help. By consulting a colorectal surgeon and proctologist an assessment will be made so the proper treatment will be provided to you. If left untreated, it is likely that internal prolapsed hemorrhoids will get stuck outside of the anus area and bring significant itching, irritation, pain, and bleeding, so it is very important to seek help from a professional. The surgical option is used for most worse cases like hemorrhoids filled with blood or those that slipped outside of the anal canal that is causing severe pain.
Surgical procedures that can be done to treat hemorrhoids:
Excisional hemorrhoidectomy is executed under anesthesia and necessary care to steer clear of damage to the lower sphincter muscle while the hemorrhoid tissue is removed. The procedure is successful in stopping hemorrhoids from resurfacing, there can be significant pain after the procedure and two to four weeks of recovery time are usually required. Stapled hemorrhoidopexy is another option if you’re considering a conventional hemorrhoidectomy. It requires the use of a round piece of equipment that staples the prolapsed hemorrhoid and returns it to its original location while also stopping the supply of blood. The pain after this operation is typically less severe and has a shorter recovery time, although the recurrence of hemorrhoids could happen. A regional or general anesthetic might be used for this operation. Doppler-guided hemorrhoid artery ligation is a minorly invasive operation, during which the doctor uses an ultrasound machine to locate the arterial blood flow. After this, the vessel is then tied off followed by the prolapsed tissue being sutured back into its correct place. In this procedure, the tissue is not removed. A regional, local, or general anesthetic will most likely be used.
