Many people are afraid of anorectal surgery, mainly because they do not understand the process, and are uneasy about the unknown. In fact, in modern medicine, anorectal surgery is a very safe operation. Under the condition of strictly grasping the indications and contraindications of the operation, the incidence of complications is very low. But each operation has its own characteristics and precautions. Now I will introduce to you:
1. Recovery time after operation. Anal surgery is a pollution operation, you can touch water after the operation, but the recovery time is longer. For example, the recovery time of hemorrhoid surgery takes one and a half months, anal fistula surgery takes at least 2 months, and the recovery time of complex anal fistula takes longer. So when you decide that you need surgery, you need to prepare enough time and patience. But it does not mean that you cannot work during these hours and you need to be hospitalized. Generally, you can start working 2 weeks after surgery.
2. How to take care of yourself after surgery. Usually during the hospital stay, the doctor in charge and the nurse will teach everyone how to take care of themselves. Keep the wound clean, soften the stool, and have a suitable amount of activity. It is easy for everyone to master the method of treatment.
3. Review time. The length of hospitalization for anorectal surgery is generally 4 to 7 days, and at least once a week after discharge, preferably twice a week. Because the wound after anorectal surgery is in the recovery period, it is prone to granulation hyperplasia, which requires frequent review and management by the competent physician.
Of course, each patient's situation is different, but as long as the doctors and patients trust and cooperate with each other, they can go through the entire treatment cycle safely.
