Can I get hemorrhoids if I eat hot pepper?
Eating a large amount of chili can easily cause hemorrhoids, but it does not mean that you will get hemorrhoids when you eat chili. For example, in the vast southwest and northwest regions of China, people generally like spicy food, while people in the southeast seldom like spicy food. But according to statistics, there is no difference in the incidence of hemorrhoids in these two areas.
Some patients ask whether they can eat spicy food after surgery?
The answer is: yes! But pay attention, you must not eat a lot.
Bloody stool means hemorrhoids?
Clinically, there is an 80% chance that blood in the stool is caused by hemorrhoids, but it does not mean that blood in the stool means hemorrhoids. Because although the symptoms of hemorrhoids are painless dripping or spurting blood, blood may also be present in anal fissures, rectal polyps, rectal cancer, and rectal ulcers. Therefore, if there is blood in the stool, please go to the nearby hospital for medical treatment and have a colonoscopy.
No pain means no hemorrhoids?
In clinical practice, some patients came to see the doctor because they found out that he had severe hemorrhoids during the physical examination, but he was surprised that he never had pain symptoms. In fact, no pain does not necessarily mean no hemorrhoids. The most common symptoms of hemorrhoids are bleeding and prolapse, which are generally painless, and only painful when accompanied by an acute attack of thrombo-edema. There are other causes of anal pain, such as abscesses, so you cannot judge whether there is hemorrhoids by pain.
Is hemorrhoids hereditary?
In clinical practice, some friends who have had hemorrhoids have a misunderstanding, thinking that their parents have had hemorrhoids, so they also have hemorrhoids. But in fact, hemorrhoids have nothing to do with heredity. The reason why the whole family gets hemorrhoids is probably because of the similar diet and lifestyle (such as alcohol, spicy food, etc.) in the family. These factors can easily induce hemorrhoids.
Surely children will not get hemorrhoids?
We can only say that with age, the incidence of hemorrhoids will increase, but this does not mean that children will not get hemorrhoids. In clinical practice, some children with weak constitution or with constipation will have purple bubbles protruding from the anus during defecation. This is external hemorrhoids caused by varicose veins.
At this time, it is recommended that parents bring their children to the hospital for medical treatment as soon as possible. Generally, constipation can be cured by improving constipation. If the opportunity for treatment is missed and the hemorrhoids are too large, surgery is needed for treatment.
If you have hemorrhoids, can you get better sooner as you sit in the bath?
Some friends who have hemorrhoids always feel that they are soaked in hot water, scalded, or even soaked in a hot tub like a foot bath. It feels very comfortable. But in fact, if the bath time is too long and the water temperature is too high, it will aggravate hemorrhoids or affect postoperative healing. Although the sitz bath itself does have the effect of preventing and treating hemorrhoids, pay attention to the water temperature not to be too high, and in general, the sitz bath should not exceed 2 times a day, and each time should not exceed 5 minutes.
Hemorrhoids have to recur after surgery, why not do it?
In the clinic, Dr. Su discovered that many friends who had hemorrhoids retreated when they heard that they needed surgery. The reason was that they would relapse if they did it.
Although theoretically speaking, there is a chance of recurrence of hemorrhoids after surgery, but if the symptoms are severe and conservative treatment is ineffective, only surgery can be used to cure or relieve symptoms. And only by looking for skilled doctors and maintaining good living habits and bowel habits after the operation, the cure rate of hemorrhoids is still very high.
Can hemorrhoid treatment really go with the treatment?
Many friends who have hemorrhoids have seen some advertisements saying that hemorrhoids can be treated without surgery and go with the treatment.
However, Dr. Su met some patients in the clinic. He listened to these small advertisements. As a result, he got 10 injections. There were no symptoms at first, but he still had bleeding. Finally, he regretted and hurried to the hospital for treatment.
In fact, treating a disease is a very rigorous matter, and it is not a measure of whether you need to be hospitalized or watched. Just follow the small advertisement's treatment and go, but the money is spent, and the disease has not been cured, and the gain is not worth the loss.
The shorter the hemorrhoid surgery time, the better?
Many friends who have had hemorrhoids lie on the operating table, and their greatest hope is that the operation will end as soon as possible, because they heard that the hemorrhoid surgery was very painful. In fact, this is misunderstood. The reason for this misunderstanding is that on the one hand, some outdated and backward surgical methods have increased the pain; on the other hand, some medical advertisements deliberately exaggerated the pain of surgery in order to promote their so-called advanced treatments.
However, as long as the treatment method is appropriate, the treatment is properly controlled, combined with some analgesic methods, the pain of hemorrhoid surgery is completely tolerable. Moreover, the effect of the operation has nothing to do with the length of the operation. The key is the experience and care of the surgeon.
Can't hemorrhoid surgery be done during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
The treatment of pregnant women has always been an issue of great importance in major hospitals, and many expectant mothers and new mothers, for the safety of their babies, would rather endure the torture of hemorrhoids than surgery. In fact, clinically, the treatment of hemorrhoids in pregnant women is usually treated with external medications. It is recommended that pregnant women come for surgery after delivery.
For lactating women, hemorrhoid surgery has no effect on breastfeeding. Intraoperative anesthetics are generally metabolized within half a day. After surgery, antibiotics and topical drugs are mainly used. Cephalosporins are selected and controlled within 1 day. Surgery is feasible. After treatment, you can breastfeed normally one day after surgery.
