Angry PPH Hemorroidectomy using Ethicon stapler

Had this done 6 years ago and have been in pain since , DO NOT DO IT and if your doctor wants to do this procedure , find a new doctor.

I had Sclerotherapy on my hemmies 5 years ago which was unsuccessful so I then had them Ligated which caused a lot of pain. I've never been the same since.

Re: PPH Hemorroidectomy using Ethicon stapler

I had this done about 2 weeks ago and I highly recommend the procedure--I'm very sorry to hear about your experience. I read about the horror stories before the procedure and am personally very grateful that I went through with things. The pain was there, but very managable after the first couple hours. I think the surgeon plays a large role in this, but I hope people won't base a surgical decision on one (understandably terrible) experience. Again I'm very sorry for your bad experience. Personally my own experience has been dramatically different--I'll know more in a few months, but this is already so much better than it was.
