Has anyone had a hemmorhoidectomy?. My doc said that I need one.  She was very vague on the details.  Could someone tell me a little more about it. After some research I found that healing could take 2-3 weeks if not more.  She told me to take it easy for a couple days.  Need a little more info than that.   Thanks

Were you advised to get one because you have very painful hemorrhoids? Don't do it until you are well-informed! We have one member in the Crohn's forum who had so-called "hemorrhoids" removed and it ended up not being hemorrhoids after all, but Crohn's skin tags, which should not be removed. So demand the details from your doc before you go for it!

Yup, that was me Sarita is referring to...best to make sure (get a couple of proffessional opinions) before getting surgery done on them...I had my "thought to be hemmies" banded not cut off which is suppose to be safer incase it turns out they're not hemmies, how much "safer" I don't know because to this day I still have complictions with my perianal crohns skin tags which were mistook as being hemmies...here's a link for hemmies and perianal crohns skin tags with pics of hemmies first then pics of CD skin tags under the pics of hemmies...

Many people (probably even most) have internal hemmroids. And in most all of those cases, they are of no concern. You usually don't even know you have them until a bad spell of C or D leaves them bleeding a bit, and then they itch as they are healing.

So I agree to really question why you need to have them removed. Not saying that they don't need to be (Regan had some removed while he was in office), but most hemmies are benign. Exterior hemmies, though, can be more painful, so I can understand needing to get them removed if they won't heal up.

Thank you very much. I definitly am not getting this done until I have more ans. By looking at the pic's I see more of a resemblence to the skin tags. And I am going to get a second opinion. Yes they are very painful and I simply cannot deal with the pain and bleeding anymore. My doctor said that I have internal and external, and I have had them for about a year. I wouldn't just get cut open for the fun of it. Thanks guys.......

Oh gosh, if yours look like the skin tags, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but that's related to crohns only, you don't even get those skin tags with having UC, another form of inflammatory bowel disease.

Have you seen a gastro? You should also see a colon and rectom surgeon/specialist.

Keep us posted!

Okay, that you are having a lot of problems with them makes surgery make sense. A lot of people, though, have no problems with theirs and when they actually find out that they have them, they automatically think they're something that has to be dealt with surgically. I just wanted to make sure you weren't under that impression.

Hey Jade
 
I'm usually on the MS forum, but i also have IBS and read here as well. I had hemmorroid surg some years ago and had the 'old' type surg. where u are actually cut! That was definitely no picnic!! It took me about 6 weeks total to get back to myself...fully functioning bowels and all. My mother in law had this surg a few years later and it was much different. Now the 'new' surg is pretty much as non invasive as u can get for that surg. Her's was done by laser and she healed very quickly...was up and about with normal bowel funtions within three days!!! It was a totally different experience for her! I agree with the others...please fully investigate and ask all those questions of u'r doc. Don't just accept what u'r told and go off looking for answers...make that doc give them to u. The more he/she realizes u'r interested and aware the more likely he/she is to be careful to offer full info and to be upfront with u. Best wishes on this and if u have any questions feel free to email me. I'd be happy to tell u what i know.

The doctor that I have is a Colon Rectal Specialist. But there is one other doctor there that I would be comfortable seeing. He's nationaly recognized so I think that I will make an aptt. with him. Definitly need a second opinion. Thanks if I have any more q's I definitly ask you guys.
