This surgical procedure is carried out in the presence of general anaesthesia. During haemorrhoidectomy your surgeon will gently open the rectum in order to excise the haemorrhoids using a scalpel, electrocautery or laser. Next, your surgeon will close the incision area with sutures.
For the first few days following hemorrhoidectomy, fluids will be recommended along with a bland diet. This includes plain rice with lentils, bread, bananas, juices etc. Slowly, the amount of roughage in the form of dietary fibers should be increased. You will be advised to take fruits, vegetables and whole grains as these kinds of food will soften the stool thereby preventing straining during bowel movements.
