The Adler Ligator: Hemorrhoid Banding Recovery
Hemorrhoid Relief and Back on Your Feet
You're a busy person. You don't have time for hemorrhoid surgery to keep you down. Thankfully, after treatment with an Adler Ligator, hemorrhoid banding recovery is quick and easy. You can knock out your hemorrhoid problem one day and be back to your routine the next day in most cases..
After your procedure, you can go about most of your normal activities. Take care not to overdo it by lifting heavy items or exerting yourself too much the first day. By day two, you won't have any activity restrictions.
If you experience any discomfort, take over-the-counter pain medications that don't contain aspirin.
It's normal for there to be a bit of bleeding, so consider using protective liners in your undergarments. The bleeding usually resolves within a few days. However, it may start up again about a week after the procedure when the shriveled tissue disconnects from your rectal wall. Once again, the bleeding shouldn't last long.
During the hemorrhoid banding recovery period, try to maintain your normal bowel movement schedule. Taking a fiber supplement can be helpful, and rinsing with a bidet may be preferable to wiping with toilet paper. Relaxing in a sitz bath of warm salt water can provide soothing relief as well.
Tips for Long-term Success
Hemorrhoid banding aftercare should continue long after your procedure. By making careful lifestyle adjustments, you can reduce your chances of developing more hemorrhoids in the future.
Watching what you eat and drink is one of the best things that you can do for your rectal health. Staying well-hydrated helps keep your bowel movements soft and easy to pass. Aim for about seven to eight glasses of water each day. Even when you're traveling, be sure to keep drinking plenty of water.
Eat a high-fiber diet as well. Your goal should be to consume 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day. Taking a daily fiber supplement can help.
Another step to preventing hemorrhoids is being careful with your bowel movements. Straining when you're sitting on the toilet can be hard on your body. Give yourself only two minutes to try going. If you're unable to produce a bowel movement in that time, come back and try again later. By doing that, you'll protect yourself from putting too much pressure on your rectum.
Hopefully, being careful with your diet and your bathroom habits will help you stay hemorrhoid-free for a long time to come. Just remember, if you ever need treatment again, the Adler Ligator will be your best option for quick and easy hemorrhoid banding recovery.
