Anyone had THD or HALO on piles?


I had a colonoscopy and THD and Banding of piles done on Monday. The surgeon described my piles as "pretty chunky" when I spoke to him Tuesday morning.

Was in a lot of pain Monday evening, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday was better but it felt as if the stitches were pulling when I moved. Friday the pain just went and providing I took paracetamol it felt almost normal. BUT when I went for a BM on Friday I noticed that one of the piles seems to be back. And today (Saturday) the pain I have is a dull ache I've experienced before and always put down to the piles.

Does anyone have an experiences they are willing to share? Could it just be swelling?
