Re: Help Hemorhoid Surgery or Rubber Bands
Your doc should make a recommendation on whether they can be banded or if you need surgery. Banding is an outpatient procedure. I've actually had both, banding and surgery. If they are small, internal 'roids then they can be banded. If they're large then surgery may be recommended. The really important thing here is making sure you have a good surgeon if you go for surgery and also educate yourself on the post-op recovery, what to do, what to have on hand, etc. There's a lot of good advice on this board. The one thing to remember is that not all 'roid surgerys are horrendous and horror stories. While the recorvery isn't a walk in the park, everyone recovers differently; different tolerances for pain, different docs, etc.
