laser

Avatar n tn This can include minimally invasive techniques such as cryotherapy, sclerotherapy, banding, or laser coagulation. If the hemorrhoids continue, then surgery may be needed. You may want to confirm the diagnosis of hemorrhoids by pursuing a sigmoidoscopy to exclude any more serious causes of bleeding. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar n tn I have heard about laser surgery and it sounds like the answer to my prayers. Is there a way of finding out if a large percentage of patient's who have had hemorroid laser surgery experience fecal incontinence or if it's a rare occurrence. Thank you.

Avatar m tn I am very concerned about her, I don’t know what else to do. Has anyone ever heard of removing hemorrhoids using laser ?? I truly welcome any thoughts or suggestions.
Avatar m tn PS Surgery might seem to be the way to go, but think twice, then think again. Like the people have said, and with a google image search, if you have a purple walnut sized hem causing severe pain. A doc can lance it with a scalpel. It give instant immediate relief and you'll feel like you just had a orgasm. That's until you get home. You'll be in a lot of pain for 3-4 days, docs debate which pain is actually worse. Lancing or leaving the hem. Since yours is shrinking, hang in there my friend.
Avatar n tn I had laser surgery to remove internal hemorrhoids. All hemorrhoids were removed except the external one. The external one did not shrink. What is the seepage I am seeing? It is not blood but mucuous.
Avatar f tn I’ve undergone gone a laser surgery for hemorrhoids 3 months ago. I had both internal and external hemorrhoids. Now, it’s been 3 months after the surgery, and I’m having a burning like pain after having a bowel movement..it lasts for hours..it started almost a month ago..I’ve taken a proctoscopy and it seems fine. But the burning pains ruins my whole day..
Avatar m tn Hi All, I am from Turkey and have hemorrhoids for 20 years at grade 3-4 . I am adviced to be operated but I am very afraid of post op pain You all mentioned and many complications after. So, When I seach more, I discovered that LHP technique is claimed as the best hemorrhoid operation. It is already done in Turkey and in Europe for 2 years. But I am suspicious. Is it really the best choice as claimed ? Anyone had LHP Operation ? What is the fact about it ?
Avatar n tn Yes - I'm curious what type of surgery you had too. I heard that having laser surgery is a lot easier to recover from than regular surgery. My main concern in doing that is because the gastro doctor said in my case it would be considered cosmetic surgery at this point (doctor code for "not covered by insurance", how much does surgery like that cost if you don't mind me asking.

Avatar m tn If all these measures fail, you will need banding or surgery—either conventional or laser. You should ideally consult a colo-rectal surgeon for this. Take care!
Avatar f tn If it was a normal vaginal delivery, then this can precipitate hemorrhoid or fissure formation. Hemorrhoids can get injured or infected and cause pain. Fissures are tears in anal lining and are painful. This will not go away on its own. For both fissures and hemorrhoids you need to soak in a tub filled with a few inches of warm water (sitz bath) twice a day for 15 minutes each. There are hemorrhoidal creams and local anesthetics available in the market which you can apply.
Avatar n tn Staple and laser hemorrhoidectomies are more preferred. With laser surgery recovery time is considerably shortened and minimally painful. You can consult your doctor regarding this option. Take care!
Avatar f tn You could having those hemorrhoids removed via laser surgery... if that's the cause of the discomfort.
Avatar f tn Hi! If the hemorrhoids are indeed thrombosed, then medical treatment will not help much. Eat high fiber diet. Practice good personal hygiene, keeping the anal area clean. Add a stool softener if you are constipated to be taken at bed time. There are hemorrhoidal creams available in the market which you can apply. Sit in a tub of warm water for 10 mins at least twice a day. All these will reduce the discomfort. If all these measures fail, you will need surgery—either conventional or laser.
Avatar n tn If you have hemorrhoids, they can be easily treated with a simall outpatient procedure (laser or so...). It may also be an anal fissure - this would probably cause obviuos pain. The next reason for bleeding is colon/small intestinal inflammation, this can be checked with colonoscopy. IBS itself never goes with bleeding.
Avatar m tn For goodness sakes, see a surgeon and get the problem taken care of once and for all. Stop fooling around. The laser surgery is very helpful. There are other procedures. Then the problem will be solved. Forever. It is not "working well". You are losing blood from this leak and the blood loss can be substantial. You need a hematocrit taken.
Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? Immediate removal of the piles or hemorrhoids may be done through surgery. The specific type of hemmorhoidectomy or surgery will depend on the extent and indication. However, as mentioned above, it is important that direct clinical examination is done for proper management. Pain may be controlled with the use of anesthesia during the operation. But this needs to be discussed with the surgeon after evaluation of the hemorrhoids. Take care and best regards.
Avatar n tn having internal hemorrhoids and diverticles in rectum only add to irritability. Hemmorhoids may be easily treated with laser or minor surgery.
Avatar n tn The liklihood is you have hemorrhoids, which develop in the blood vessels surrounding the anal sphincter. There are several treatment options, ranging from surgery (cutting them out), to freezing (cryogenic), cauterization, and laser treatment. Over a period of time you can lose quite a lot of blood, so it pays to have the problem evaluated and attended to by a physician.
Avatar n tn There is no medical treatment and no diet change can help treat it. The only treatment is surgery or laser. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please consult a surgeon. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
388486 tn?1200383470 I have developed hemorrhoids, about six years ago. My doctor says they don't look too bad, but every time I go to the bathroom, it feels like there is a tongue sticking out of my butt! However, the most disturbing symptom I developed about five years ago, is a clear, slippery fluid, that leaks out of my anus, requiring me to wear a pad constantly, as it will go through my underwear, and pants or skirt. When it started, I saw my Dr. who referred me to a GI man.
Avatar n tn than that, yet podophyllin and condylox are among the more irritating therapies. And except for direct physical ablation (surgery, laser, freezing), all effective wart therapies are irritating to surrounding tissues. That's how they work, by causing inflammation. The bottom line--no pun intended--is that notwithstanding your fears, the only logical approach is to see a health care provider.
Avatar n tn My OB-GYN says I might have endometriosis, but will not do the lap surgery to find out for sure. Now I notice I bleed rectally when I'm menstruating. I am very concerned about this, but my OB-GYN says it's probably hemorrhoids, and to see my GP about it if I want to follow up. I also have diarrhea when I'm menstruating, and other times as well which alternates with constipation, flat stools and normal stools. I did notice blood in my stool once when I wasn't menstruating, and went to the ER.
Avatar n tn he stated that he couldn't do anything until the thrombosis (clot) returns. i have no idea why. was your surgery with a cold scalpel, laser, or harmonic scalpel? what was your pain level and recovery time?
Avatar m tn hey ,I have a continuous pain in my anus.i have hemorrhoids and have the pains off and on and it heals on its own.but this time it has lasted me 4 months at a stretch. the internal pain with little burning sensation whenever i defecate lasts very long. itsn't accompanied by blood.sometimes it goes away on its own The severity increases immediately the moment I eat spicy food then even without passing stool i expeirence discomfort with pain and burning feeling near the anus.
Avatar f tn Most doctors can diagnose hemorrhoids by clinical examination of the anal opening or by proctoscopy (inserting a proctoscope, an instrument to visualize the anal mucosa better). If all these measures fail, you will need banding or surgery—either conventional or laser. You should ideally consult a colo-rectal surgeon for this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn How extensive was the surgery? Did you notice the penis swelling right away? I have had surgery on the scrotum (left testicle removed) and after that for the first while my penis and scrotum were black and blue in color. Everything was so swolen after that the glans of the penis was the only thing sticking out. I had a simmilar problem when I had an inguinal hernia repaired, again everything swelled up. Even my penis had some purple showing. Everything returned to normal on it's on.
Avatar n tn //www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/surgery-treat-hemorrhoids. While pain for a few weeks post surgery is very normal, pain years later is not common. Has anyone offered the idea of nerve damage? Would a neurologist potentially benefit you? We have had a previous member that had nerve damage of this sort and chronic pain similar to what you describe. This may be worth investigating.
Avatar n tn Patients who continue to have symptoms despite the conservative measures described above may be candidates for one of various techniques developed to treat symptomatic hemorrhoids. This can include rubber band ligation, sclerotherapy, cryotherapy, laser coagulation or surgery. I would strongly suggest that you follow this up with your personal physician or gastroenterologist.
