 I am a 40 year old man and suffered from piles about 4 months ago. The piles were internal and there was occasional bleeding with no pain. I went to see the doctor who suggested banding which didnt work. Subsequently phenol injections were suggested which also didnt work. I then went to see another colorectal surgeon who suggested a new surgical procedure called THD (Transanal Hemmorhoid Dearterialization). I was told that this is least invasive and I will be up and running in 24 hrs. I ent for the THD operation which was done under GA. Today is day 10 and I am still in pain. The stitching inside the rectum has made my rectum swollen and despite repeated check ups the doctor only suggests that I have to give it more time to heal. My biggest worry is any permanent constriction in the rectum and whether I will be trouble free ever again or not. I am worried if I would be able to go to the gym and even if the swelling subsides whether I will be able to live without the medicines. The doctor is giving me assurances that its all going to be fine but I am scared. Please can anyone who has had a surgical procedure on hemmorhoids comment. Is rectum stretchable enough that once the swelling subsides I would not feel the obstruction? Also any ideas on how to reduce this swelling inside quickly. I am having fibers and some pain killers. Thank you

Hi sigma,
Welcome to the site! :-)
I really can't comment on your situation, as I have not had this procedure (nor do I have hemmies). I just wanted to say "hi!" and ask you to hang in there... Hopefully someone who has been through what you have will see your post and chime in.
Best of luck,
