Surgery Instructions

Recent evidence has shown that patients who use narcotic pain medications are slower to heal and have more complications than those who do not. We do want your pain to be managable, however....

Your post-operative medications have been sent to your pharmacy. There will be 2 prescriptions waiting for you.

1) a muscle relaxant

2) a medication for nerve pain.

3) medication is an NSAID nasal spray. (It comes from an out of s tate pharmacy and you should call them at 1-844-977-7749 as so on as possible to confirm that they have the prescription and so that they can work with your insurance to cover the cost. This medication is an extremely effective non-narcotic anti-inflammatoy but is hard to find at a reasonable cost. This pharmacy can help. If you are allergic to NSAIDS please let the doctor know- you should not take this medicine.)

Avoiding constipation is critical after rectal surgery. Starting prior to surgery, you should take a fiber supplement (powder mixed in water such as citrucel), a stool softner, and a pro-biotic. You will want to continue these supplements after the surgery as well to improve your healing.

You may want to consider several holistic supplements as well- NOW brands has many of these items online...

1) n-Acetylcysteine (NAC) 600 mg daily. This is a good anti-inflammatory.

2) Inulin and Pectin supplements are prebiotic foods that can sup port the probiotic supplements suggested

3) L- Glutamine 500 mg is an amino acid your intestines like and c an promote more normal bowel function

4) Arnica montana helps minimize bruising, take as directed on th e bottle-this comes as small pills or as a topical and can be found online or Sprouts

5) Turmeric- a great anti-inflammatory- you can get at any grocery store, a medical grade version is made by Standard Process, and t here is a compound of turmeric and CBD which we have available in the office.

6) Boswellia can be found at many whole food groceries- Standar d process has a medical grade boswellia which is combined with ginger and turmeric and is available online or in our office.

7) We can compound a post-operative topical ointment for you that contains a topical anesthetic, muscle relaxant, and cbd. This compounded medication for you from Key Pharmacy in Cedar Hill. You CAN NOT use this medicine until 48 hours after the procedure as it may negatively interact with the local anesthetic I inject at the time of your surgery.

The night before your surgery you should do one fleet enema and then repeat the morning of surgery. You will need to be on an empty stomach for 8 hours.

After your surgery, you should spend time in a warm bath tub-unless otherwise directed. Do not sit on a donut pilow and avoid prolonged sitting on the toilet. 

There are no food limitations after surgery, per se. Normal bowel habits promote healing so....avoid foods and medications that cause diarrhea or constipation! 

The incisions should then be dried off and covered with dry non-woven gauze. If dry gauze is too rough, you can cut cott on t-shirts into small squares and use that as a topical patch over the incisions.

Rectal surgery hurts, but to heal you must have normal bowel function- avoid constipation and diarrhea. If you have had no BM in 24 hours after surgery, take milk of magnesium or Perdiem (an herbal laxative). These medications can be repeated 8 hours later if needed. If still no results, you can take magnesium citrate- 1 bottle. If still no luck, I suggest a dose of miralax every 15 minutes until it produces a bowel movement (this may be a large number of doses)
