OK I am beginning to feel like there might be hope, but still have questions that make me feel kinda stupid to ask. So I hope you will all be patient with me I think I have been posting in the wrong thread or something. I have been talking to a couple of great people in the hemorrhoidectomy recovery guide page 1.
Which is kinda like the "Golden Rule" of hemorrhoidectomy.
I am not sure if I was posting in the right place so I am gonna try this.
You will have to excuse me but I have just been "torn a new one" and am on drugs.
I have read TacomaGuy's guide several times and am so grateful for the information. My pertinent hemorrhoidectomy question is how much activity is OK? I have been trying to get be more active. I haven't got any real answers from my Dr. other than "whatever I am comfortable with" I had 3 external and several internal hemorrhoids removed. Which the Dr. did tell my husband were very very bad grade 4. I am trying to be careful and take lots of warm baths and watch my diet, fiber ect. So now what about activities? I don't want to do to much, I feel tired most of the time due to another medical condition. But I want to try, What about climbing up and down the stairs, doing laundry. etc.?
It seems to really bother me when I am bending over and getting things out of the dryer to fold etc.
As I mentioned I have been doing the bath soaks several times a day and using nupercainal cream, witch hazel "tucks" to clean up with. but I have a hard time when I try to get back into the regular routine. Maybe I am having a off day or something but right now I feel like a lazy bum.
My surgery was Feb 8 Th.
I am grateful for any input
