What Result to Expect From Surgery?
Even with the most expertly trained and experienced anal surgeon, like Dr. Maharaj, anal surgery is not a guaranteed success and comes with risks, including complications and failure. Patients may not see dramatic results and should be prepared for a lengthy and uncomfortable recovery, including pain, swelling, infection, bleeding, and bruising. Sometimes, even the best surgical plans can be challenged by symptomatic hemorrhoids. Recovery may require more time off work or other activities than anticipated. One can estimate, all other things being equal, you might spend about a third to half as much time off work and in pain. For Grade 3/4 hemorrhoids, then one can expect at least 4-12 weeks unable to do usual activities with extensive cutting surgery. Patients with similar disease in our experience 1-4 patients weeks of trouble with non-cutting surgery. Our surgical team will do their best to guide patients towards a rapid recovery and provide support throughout the process.
