Laser Hemorrhoidectomy Experience
I had a hemorrhoidectomy done this past wednesday. during the surgery, i was knocked out, when i woke up, i didnt realized that my operation was completed. When I left the surgery center, i didnt feel much pain due to the fact that my butt was numbed. I had to take vicodin that evening so that i can fall asleep, didnt need to take vicodin but i figured it would be an easy ay for me to fall asleep. Day 2, I decided to go on a diet where i just ate Lipton soup, tangerines, water, metamucil (no other food). Did not take a shower since i wanted the wound to heal. Took vicodin once in the morning and another in the evening so that i can unrinate (to relax the muscles). Also took vicodin to relieve pain but pain was tolerable. Day 3, pain was more apparent but was tolerable but i took vicodin to relieved my pain. i had gas which at first hurt a tiny bit but thereafter the pain subsided with each gas going by. Again, my diet have Lipton soup, tangerine oranges, water, and metamucil - great way to lose weight...lol. Purpose of going on this kind of diet is because i do not want to have bowel movement (BM) since i have been reading so much horror stories on these message boards. I decide to not to shower so that my wounds can heal much quicker. Day 4, i am feeling a lot better, but still there are pains but the pains are not as bad as compared to Day 3. I have not had BM and I am hoping that with my diet i can wait another 2 more days so that when i have BM, it wont be as bad. I do have gas and its not that bad at all.
