The course of treatment
The operation is usually performed under general anesthesia, local anesthesia is also possible in individual cases. Physical rest is then necessary for two to three weeks, during this time you should not sit for long and do no sports. The skin threads are pulled after twelve days. The deep threads dissolve by themselves.
After this operation, the patients come to our Proctological Practice in Munich for a weekly check-up. Minor wound healing disorders are common, but they can be controlled well by appropriate care of the wound edges, removal of sutures and special wound dressings.
