The Skin Feels Hot And Has Not Yet Dried On The Hemorrhoid Wound?
Good night, my husband wednesday afternoon after the hemorrhoid surgery, the day after the operation the pain has not felt maybe the effects of the infusion time … But 2 days after the new operation was felt that there was a lump in his skin melting like a burn and not dry yet, even though it was always dry clean and clean the salve, how’s that?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pain that is felt after hemorrhoid surgery (hemorrhoidectomy) is very normal. This post-operative pain can be felt up to 2-4 weeks post-surgery and will be more intense when your husband defecates. Post surgery is also very normal if there is a slight bleeding during bowel movements or if the anus secretes a little yellowish fluid. These symptoms can occur up to 1-2 weeks after surgery. Wounds that have not yet dried are also normal (healing in this area can not be fast), the wound may only dry out after 1-2 weeks.
Here are some things you and your husband can do:
Follow the instructions from the doctor about how to treat wounds. Take pain medication according to the doctor's instructions. Perform sitz bath (soaking the anus in warm water approximately 15-20 minutes 3 times a day). Compress with ice if the anal area feels very painful and swollen (compresses may be done less more 10 minutes several times a day) Sit with a donut pillow (pillow with a middle hole to reduce pressure on the scar when sitting) Avoid straining too hard when bowel movements, if the bowel is hard, ask your doctor's stool softeners When sitting on the toilet to defecate, Your husband should lay his feet on a small chair placed under the toilet seat so that the position of the legs squatting a little. This position will facilitate the discharge of feces. If you or your husband see any signs of infection of the anus (fever occurs, pus coming out of the anus, pain increases, swelling increases, wounds redden and feel warm), pain does not decrease after taking pain medication, severe vomiting, can not BAB or fart, etc., immediately return to the doctor so that further evaluation can be done.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
