What kind of pain is there after an hemorrhoidectomy?

Hello.

Averyone talk about the horrible pain of an hemorrhoidectomy, but what kind of pain did you feel?

Types of pain:

1) IS THE PAIN, LIKE A SHARP,THROBBING, SUDDEN EPISODES OF PAIN (as if someone pinched you repeatedly with a needle in the area)?
If this is the type of pain: how bad is it?
Is it calmed by pain killers or warm/cold baths?


OR

2) is it more like a "steady and prolonged pain (like a headache in the anus)"? If this is the type of pain: "how bad is it?
Is it calmed by pain killers or warm/cold baths?

How many days did you suffer the pain? 10? 15?

I WISH YOU LUCK IN YOUR RECOVERY.

THANKS

I won't kid u, it's quite uncomfortable but i tolerated it well.

Considerably on both counts.

Worst pain about 3 days then pretty much gone after 2 weeks. 4 to 6 weeks for complete recovery.

I have had hemorrhoidectomy twice.

Is that so uncomfortable to be unable to sleep? did the pain keep you awake for the first 3 days?

I found about a mixture of sustances cream (2% Nitroglycerin cream and mixing it 1 part to 10 parts of 1% hydrocortisone cream, yielding a .2% Nitroglycerin formulate) that worked to eliminate the hemorrhoids very quickly... here it is... maybe works for you... it might be my last "resort" before hemorroidectomy...

Good Luck.

No, only the first night. After that i slept fairly well with help from the pain meds.

my issues now are a little different but for anyone who has hemorrhoid problems, that might well be a solution depending on how bad they are. Both times mine were grade 4 so surgery was pretty much my only option at the time.

Good luck with which ever way u go.
