Pain and swelling is expected 4-6 hours following the procedure. Please take pain medications (Naproxen or double strength panadol) for 24 hours. This pain subsides after a day.
There may be some bleeding 7-10 days post ligation when the rubber slips off or from ulceration. Most of the time, this is self limited. Should bleeding persist, please contact your doctor immediately. An examination and injection of the haemorrhoidal complex is usually required.
