If you’re researching hemorrhoid treatment options, like infrared coagulation (the #1 hemorrhoid treatment recommended at Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center in Knoxville), you may be wondering what to expect after your hemorrhoid treatment.
Expect relief from your hemorrhoid pain
The primary motivation many of our patients have for seeking treatment is hemorrhoid pain. Giving them relief of their pain and other hemorrhoid symptoms is the chief benefit of treatment. With infrared coagulation, which uses bursts of warm light to treat the source of the hemorrhoid, patients usually report some relief with the first treatment. Once you’ve completed the entire course of treatment, you can expect to enjoy lasting relief from your hemorrhoid pain and other symptoms.
Expect to return to your normal activity level
A key benefit of non-surgical treatments, like infrared coagulation, is the lack of down time associated with treatments. Even though a series of short treatments are usually required to fully treat the source of your hemorrhoids, you can typically resume your normal activities immediately. Each treatment only takes about 10 minutes and is performed right in the doctor’s office, so even the individual treatments don’t take much time out of your daily schedule.
You may experience some slight bleeding or discomfort
Depending on your particular case and your body, you may experience a number of very mild side effects from the treatment such as slight spot bleeding or a feeling as if you need to have a bowel movement. While slight bleeding is normal, , if the bleeding does not stop within a few days of your treatments, you should talk to your doctor. In general, if you do experience any side effects, they should subside within 7 to 10 days following treatment.
If you are suffering from hemorrhoids, it is important you consider seeing a hemorrhoid treatment specialist to devise the optimal treatment plan for you. There’s no reason to let the problem persist. You want to be confident your treatment plan includes the most up-to-date treatment options, like infrared coagulation, to provide lasting relief from hemorrhoids.
