Again, what to expect after hemorrhoid operations will vary greatly depending on your age, weight, health, level of activity, threshold of pain, and much more. In general, you will have come lingering pain at the incision point for a few days, which is to be expected.
Your diet should change after the surgery for a few days to make the bowel movements easier on your bum. You will also want to get moving after your hemorrhoid operation. Staying still too long will not allow it to heal as fast. We donвЂ™t want you training for a marathon or anything after wards, but some light walking would be good.
