Due to the long recovery time of anorectal surgery, many patients were hurriedly discharged from the hospital after their wounds had not healed. Then the wound care and dressing can only be solved by the patient. After a while, some patients will run over again with a sad face and tell the doctor: Why is the wound still not healed? It has been so long. "Have you changed your medicine at home? Have you come to review regularly?"
Some will say to change at the local clinic;
A small number of clinicians will tell patients that the wound will heal on its own without changing the dressing;
There are still many people who are changing the dressing by themselves. They think that for minor hemorrhoids surgery, just apply them casually. The result is that every time a lot of hemorrhoid ointment is squeezed on the anal opening, they think this is a dressing change, which is effective for external incisions. But it can't fix the wound inside the anal canal.
We believe that anal canal wounds are always contaminated due to defecation and therefore grow very slowly. Before changing the dressing, use warm water for a sitz bath (holly sitz bath is available in our TCM hospital). The picture below is how to change the dressing, I hope it will be useful to you.
