I had a hemorrhoidectomy in June, do I need another one?

I’m a 30 year old male, generally good health, no allergies or current medications. I had a hemorrhoidectomy in June, with a pretty lengthy recovery (~1 month til i felt functional). I drive alot for work, but I’ve done my best to change my diet and eat more fiber. Everything has been going pretty well, except for a few things. First and foremost, I think they’re recurring. I noticed it was “back” on one side. How often does recurrence happen after surgery? Can I have another surgery to fix it again if it gets bad? When they do the surgery do they remove musculature from the anal sphincter? The other thing I notice is that sometimes after I go, I wipe and I feel it’s clean, I can’t just seem to get 100% clean; there always more to get it seems.

In my opinion this is either recurrence or stenosis which is a common complication
Try stapled surgery if it is a recurrence
I recommend you see your doctor again

Good Luck

hi
this is definitely a recurrence.
this may be due to inappropriately performed initial procedure or lowered immunity on your part.
consult the surgeon and try using laser therapy instead of re-surgery.
thanks

HI
THERE ARE HIGH CHANCES THAT YOU MAY NEED ANOTHER SURGERY TO GET COMPLETE CURE.
PROCTOSCOPY SHOULD BE DONE BEFORE HAND TO CONFIRM THE DIAGNOSIS.
STAPLE SURGERY GIVES BETTER RESULTS.

hello there
from the symptoms,it seems that you may need another surgery.
but as far as haemorrhoidectomy is concerned,it is always better to avoid repeated surgeries done.
talk to your doctor about other alternatives like local sclerosing injections,laser etc
