Li from Xi'an asked: I have had hemorrhoids for more than ten years. Once I fell ill, I used some topical medicine or sitz bath to relieve it. Recently, not only has it recurs frequently, but it is also more serious. At present, besides taking antihypertensive drugs, I also take aspirin for a long time. I heard that surgery for hemorrhoids is effective, but when I went to the hospital, the doctor said that I cannot be operated on in this case. Why is this?
First, patients with liver cirrhosis are not suitable for surgery, because liver cirrhosis hinders the venous return of hemorrhoids, and hemorrhoids and varicose veins aggravate. Even with surgery, the effect will not be very good.
Second, patients who take anticoagulants for a long time or those who take thrombolytic drugs for heart surgery should not receive surgical treatment for the time being, because anticoagulants can cause more bleeding on the wound.
Third, patients with severe hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure, blood disease, or long-term oral hormones due to certain diseases should be conservative and not suitable for surgical treatment.
Patients who are undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy after cancer surgery should not undergo immediate surgery. Conservative treatment is recommended for pregnant women, elderly patients, and those with poor lung function.
