Hemorrhoids are a problem more common than people realize. Many people choose to suffer in silence because they think either there is no way to treat the hemorrhoids or that treatment will involve extensive preparation and diet restrictions as well as weeks of painful recovery. As your Pinellas Park and Tampa hemorrhoid doctor at HemRelief Hemorrhoid Centers would say, this could not be further from the truth!
In the past, preparation for hemorrhoid treatment took a lot of time. It involved a special diet, going off of blood-thinning medications, and even taking an enema to keep things clear. Recovery involved weeks of pain that made it difficult to return to normal life. Here at HemRelief Hemorrhoid Centers, we have taken much of the pain out of treatment and recovery with the non-invasive Infrared Coagulation procedure.
The best part of this treatment is the preparation, as there really is not any required. You do not have to go on a special diet, and you do not have to take an enema at home to clear things out. Just come to your designated appointment, and we will take care of everything for you. Infrared Coagulation treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. After that, we will send you on your way with instructions to assist in your recovery.
IRC is non-invasive and is less painful than older hemorrhoid treatment options. However, following treatment, there is likely to be some slight discomfort for three to four days. We will help you understand your options for managing this minimal discomfort and pain, getting you back to your normal life quickly. The most important thing you can do is communicate with your doctor. The more we know about what you are experiencing, the better we can help.
While no special preparation is needed for IRC treatment, it is still a good idea to schedule a consultation for hemorrhoid treatment with a professional at HemRelief Hemorrhoid Centers. We will help you understand your options and work toward a more comfortable and normal life for you once again. Contact us today to schedule your consultation by calling one of our convenient locations in Florida. We look forward to helping you take back your quality of life from hemorrhoids.
