Re: After Hemmoroid Surgery
Hemorrhoid Surgery is absolutely horrific. I had to have it done in a couple months ago. The only thing that brought relief to me when the spasms started was a hot bath with a bunch of epsom salts dumped in. That seemed to calm them down. I also thoroughly enjoyed my prescription of Tramadol that my doc prescribed to me. I only used wet wipes, never dry paper. I also ordered a Squatty Potty, which I know helped healing a lot easier (helps with proper positioning, makes it more comfortable to go). Other than that I just lay in my bed and groaned in pain. I generally felt sorry for myself, and wished this never happened.
After about 3 weeks, she will feel like herself again. After 2 weeks, they say it gets better. After 1 week, it is not as painful.
Best wishes to your mom, this is not the easiest thing to go through. Luckily it is so doable!
I should add, for any reason if mom gets worse and you get worried...make a call to the doc/nurse/etc. You should never have to sit and have to worry sick over your mom. I have taken care of my own mom through cancer, and a quick call to lesson my worries is worth it.
