Same here as Tamu, Paul. No probs. for me with hemorrhoids after surgery but S#!t happens.
In my case, at about
three weeks out of surgery, a varicose vein in my left leg decided to go ballastic for the first time ever. (It aggravated me more than the surgery!) The only thing my GP could suggest (but didn't recommend) was more surgery, which really sounded like fun to me, at the time. So I let it pass. And it did.
Whatever you do about
the hemorrhoids, talk to your doc before you soak your backside in hot water. My urologist didn't want me to soak in hot water for many weeks after the surgery.
Best to ya,
You'll be fine.
