How Long Does It Take To Heal The Hemorrhoid Scars From The Stepler Method?
Thanks for the opportunity to ask, Is 13 days post-hemeroid surgery using the stepler method, am I safe to smoke for the former operation? If not, how long should it take to be declared the former operation was completely healed and safe, and free of any food consumption it’s like spicy, meat, baksi noodles, SMOKING, and free activities such as lifting goods, riding a motorcycle and so on? As additional information, in addition to medication from a doctor, the medicine I take as well as postoperatively is a cork fish extract which is said to be scrapping quickly after surgery. Thanks for your attention
Hello Jibon, Thank you for the question.
In general, there are no restrictions on consuming the foods you mentioned above and there are no restrictions on lifting heavy objects. So that the wound can experience healing properly and optimally, what needs to be done is to treat the wound properly as recommended by the doctor and maintain your nutritional intake. A good wound care aims to prevent infections that can prolong wound healing while a good nutritional intake (especially those containing protein) is needed so that the regeneration or healing process also runs optimally. The cork fish extract you consume is believed to contain high protein and is usually recommended to help wound healing. To ride a motorbike you should wait until the wound is completely healed and the stepler has been removed because of the intense pressure on the wound for example when sitting riding a motorbike can interfere with the wound healing process. You should avoid smoking habits until the wound heals because the substances contained in cigarettes affect wound healing. When will this wound heal? Usually the initial wound healing in the area lasts for 10-14 days, but it can take longer depending on your wound care and nutrition intake. I advise you to consult with the doctor who treats you because the doctor must conduct a direct examination of the wound to determine whether the wound has healed or not.
Another thing you need to do is increase consumption of high fiber foods such as vegetables, fruit, and nuts and water as much as 2-3 liters per day to prevent constipation. If you have to push when you defecate due to constipation, this can again cause injury. Then make sure you keep the buttocks area clean and dry.
Hopefully this information helps you.
