Piles or haemorrhoids, is a painful debilitating condition in which inflamed blood vessels cause swelling around or inside the anus and rectum. These can cause extreme discomfort during defecation, anal bleeding, and pain. Doctors recommend piles surgery or haemorrhoidectomy when all other modes of treatment fail. Piles surgery hospitals in India administer general anaesthesia and the patient may be required to stay in the hospital for a few days. The surgeon makes small incisions through the anus to cut the haemorrhoids away. Since the area is very sensitive, one may require about 2-3 weeks to fully recover and for the swelling and tenderness to go away. The patient is required to adhere to a soft, semi-solid diet and a medication routine for a while afterwards. Piles surgery is safe and involves minimal risks.
