Many patients and their family members worry that defecation after anorectal surgery will cause wounds to tear, bleeding, etc., so they think that reducing food intake and not understanding bowel movements can solve this problem? actually not. Doctors prepare the intestines for patients, mostly through anal cleansing enema. This just cleans the stool at the distal end of the colon, and the food residues that stayed in the stomach and the small intestine will gradually move down to form new stool. Therefore, we suggest that we try to control the uncomfortable stool on the day of the operation and the second day, and on the third day, use a clean enema method to discharge the newly accumulated stool, so that these dry and hard stools will become thin and soft after washing by water. It will be better discharged.
Many patients are worried that inserting such a thick anal canal will break the wound. In fact, the surface of this anal canal is very smooth, and we will use paraffin oil to lubricate it. Coupled with the skilled skills of anorectal specialist nurses, it will not damage the wound. .
Many patients are asking what to eat after surgery. I think that as long as one principle is guaranteed, the food is light and nutritious, and it is not easy to cause constipation after eating. You can eat rice porridge, noodles, chaos, steamed eggs, fish soup, minced meat soup, vegetable soup in the early postoperative period. Before defecation, try not to eat gas-producing foods to avoid bloating, such as carbonated drinks, soy milk, and starchy foods. After the stool is normal, you can eat a normal diet, pay attention to strengthening nutrition, and promote wound healing.
