Frequently Asked Questions

What are the various types of haemorrhoids?

  • Internal haemorrhoids are located inside the rectum and do not cause major discomfort. However, exerting excess strain and pressure may damage the haemorrhoids surface causing it to bleed.

  • External haemorrhoids are located under the skin around the anus. These haemorrhoids may itch or bleed when irritated.

  • Thrombosed haemorrhoids are the external haemorrhoids in which blood clots are formed, which result in severe pain, inflammation and lump near the anus.

  • Prolapsed haemorrhoids are the internal haemorrhoids which protrude out through the anal opening due to excess strain. This is known as protruding or prolapsed haemorrhoids.

What are the possible complications of haemorrhoids?

    • Excessive bleeding
    • Strangulated haemorrhoid
    • Infection
    • Inflammation
    • Thrombosis
    • Ulceration
    • Fecal incontinence

What happens if haemorrhoids are left untreated?

In general, haemorrhoids are irritating and painful. If appropriate treatment is not provided or if haemorrhoids are left untreated, it may worsen the problems such as formation of gangrene or may the swollen vein may burst, which may result in excessive bleeding.

What are the diagnostic tests performed for haemorrhoids?

The doctor may identify the presence of haemorrhoids by looking at it. However, a few tests are performed for the diagnosis of internal haemorrhoids, which include:

  • Digital examination: In a digital examination, the doctor inserts a gloved finger into the rectum to feel for any unusual growths. He may recommend further tests if necessary.

  • Visual inspection: In case of internal haemorrhoids, the doctor may examine the lower part of the colon or rectum using anoscope, proctoscope or sigmoidoscope. As internal haemorrhoids are too soft to be felt during rectal examination, visual inspection is performed.

Is there a surgical procedure for treating haemorrhoids?

The doctor may recommend a surgical procedure to treat haemorrhoids, if other procedures have failed to treat the condition. The surgical procedures to treat haemorrhoids include:

  • Haemorrhoids removal: Surgical removal of haemorrhoids is also known as haemorrhoidectomy. In this surgery, the excess tissue which causes bleeding is removed. This is accompanied by complications and it is the most common surgery performed to completely get rid of rectal veins.

  • Haemorrhoid stapling: This procedure is also called as stapled haemorrhoidectomy. It stops the flow of blood to the rectal veins and this procedure is used for treating internal haemorrhoids.

Which among the two surgeries has lesser chances of the recurrence of haemorrhoids?

n terms of pain and recovery, stapled haemorrhoid surgery is a more recommended surgery when compared to haemorrhoid removal surgery. However, stapled haemorrhoidectomy is associated to a greater risk of recurrence of the rectal veins.

  • The patient is not allowed to have anything the night before the surgery.

  • Medications are taken as per the doctor’s advice. He may ask the patient either to continue or discontinue the use of certain medications.

  • Enema is given to clear the digestive system.

The surgery takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete.

How long will it take for me to resume my normal routine?
