15 Oct Hemorrhoid is not that scary as we thought
Hemorrhoid is a kind of disease where many people usually decided not to come to see the doctor when the symptoms started until it irritates and affect their daily life, after that they decided to come to see the doctor, just because they’re afraid of Hemorrhoid – surgery.
Dr.Anon Jaionnom , General Surgeon of Vejthani Hospital, said that curing hemorrhoid is dispensable to have surgery. However, it depends on how severe the disease.
Dr.Arnon explained that Hemorrhoids occur when the veins surrounding the anus are engorged or enlarged. Hemorrhoid is swollen veins in the lower part of the anus and rectum. When the walls of these vessels are stretched, they become irritated, that caused by having low fiber food, drinking less water, less exercise, also including daily life behavior, for example, reading books or playing phone during defecate, and over-straining. If you do not adjust your behavior, the veins might become more enlarged. Hemorrhoid usually occurs on men and women age
over 40-60 years old.
For diagnosis of existing symptom, the doctor will have 5
methods of examination as follows; Anus checking method, basically hemorrhoids bulge outside the anal sphincter Anus checking by hands method, we can separate other diseases from hemorrhoid especially tumor or wound around the area Anus checking by endoscope method, we can see internal hemorrhoid clearly Anus checking by proctoscopy method, suits for elders who used to have chronic bowel disorders Barium enema or Colonoscope method, basically the doctor will use this method with the patient who has an unclear symptom of hemorrhoid or has other disease’s symptom along with hemorrhoid’s sign, also with the elderly patients For healing methods, the doctor will divided by stage of hemorrhoid; 1st – 2nd stage of hemorrhoid symptomatic, the symptom is not severe so that it is dispensable to have surgery, the doctor might consider giving mild laxative along with the consultation to adjust daily life behavior, for example having more fiber food, drinking 8 glasses of water, and avoid risky behavior. 3rd – 4th stage of hemorrhoid symptomatic, the symptom became more severe, it might need surgery. Nowadays, there is hemorrhoid surgical laser technique. In the
hemorrhoid surgical laser operation, a laser was inserted into the anal canal to get rid of the terminal branches of superior hemorrhoidal arteries, just 15 – 20 minutes of the treatment, the patient can go home immediately after the treatment with no need to stay in the hospital. Moreover, it heals faster and also spend less time.
The faster you come to cure, the easier you can heal. Besides that, the easier of taking cares of yourself after the hemorrhoid surgical laser treatment, the patient just immersed in warm water for 3 – 4 days, the symptom will be back to normal quickly.
