Why Surgery / Operation of Piles

Colorectal doctors are of the opinion surgery to be the most effective treatment for piles. Medications and home remedies do not provide a permanent cure for haemorrhoids but only help manage the condition from getting worse. If the situation deteriorates, a patient is sure to need surgical treatment. As days pass, the pain and discomfort associated with piles are likely to get worse. To prevent these, Pristyn Care surgeons
always suggest that patients avail consultation and proper diagnosis rather than resorting to medication and home remedies alone. Many people avail non-surgical or Ayurvedic methods of treating haemorrhoids. But non-surgical treatments leave a significant chance of recurrence of piles and ayurvedic piles treatment takes a significantly long time to show effective results. But with surgical piles treatment, the causes of piles can be treated permanently and there would be non-chances of recurrence of piles. Surgical hemorrhoids treatment is the only way to destructing or removing the piles from the roots.

One such success story that we take pride of is that of Fazal's, who is a resident of Mumbai. Fazal was suffering from piles for quite a long time. Although he tried several medications and treatments, nothing could bring him relief. When he consulted with Pristyn Care proctologists, he was recommended to undergo laser surgery since that looked as the best possible treatment for his condition. In Fazal's words, "I had piles problems. I was in a lot of pain and bleeding. I tried medications but nothing worked. So, I googled for the best treatment and came to know about Pristyn Care. They suggested that I should go for laser surgery. Laser surgery does not involve cuts, wounds, pain or blood. So, I contacted the doctor. He briefed me on how this surgery is done without pain. Then I underwent laser surgery for piles. I am feeling extremely relieved now. The recovery after laser surgery is very quick. My surgery was done at the Pristyn Care clinic in Marol Naka. Vikas was my care buddy. He took care of everything throughout my entire treatment procedure. I am feeling relieved after the surgery. The doctor has prescribed me medications and explained to me how to take them. Pristyn Care also provided me with pick up and drop on the day of the surgery."

Piles Causes

The primary cause of piles of haemorrhoids is heredity. If your parents have had piles, there are high chances that you may get them too. Piles are caused due to increased pressure in the lower rectum. Different factors may trigger this condition. Some of them are:

  1. Constipation -People with constipation have to strain and put a lot of pressure to push the stool out leading to the formation of piles.
  2. Chronic diarrhea- Chronic diarrhea can cause a person to frequently need to go to the toilet and spend more time than what is considered healthy. This may cause piles.
  3. Obesity - Obesity or being overweight is considered to be a significant risk factor of piles or haemorrhoids.
  4. Lifting heavyweights - Regularly lifting heavy weights can put a person at significant risk of developing piles.
  5. Pregnancy - Pregnancy is one of the widespread causes of piles. The baby developing in the womb puts constant pressure on the pelvic region, which may lead to the development of piles.

How to prepare for piles surgery?

Irrespective of the type of surgery, once your piles surgery is scheduled, the doctor will likely give you all the instructions on preparing for the surgery.

  • Do not eat anything heavy on the day of the surgery. You will likely be recommended to take a very light, non-oily or non-spicy breakfast or lunch. Drink only clear liquids until 5 hours before the surgery.
  • The doctor will advise you to stop taking all medicines before the surgery, including anti-inflammatory drugs (if any).
  • Stop smoking at least two weeks before the surgery date. Smoking can significantly alter your chances of healing and recovery.
  • Wear light-fitted clothes on the day of surgery.

How to take care after piles surgery to ensure quick recovery?

Till the surgery, you are just halfway through the treatment. For complete healing, recovery and to ensure there is no recurrence, you need to take proper post-surgery tips. To rule out all possible chances of recurrence, diligently follow the surgeon’s aftercare tips. For a healthy recovery without any complications, do the following:
  1. Eat a high-fibre diet.
  2. Use a stool softener that can aid you in having smooth bowel movements.
  3. Stay hydrated. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day.
  4. Avoid lifting heavyweights.
  5. Do not strain while passing a stool.

If you face any problem or experience anything unusual with your bowel movements even after the piles surgery, get in touch with your doctor immediately rather than resorting to self-care.
