Taking good care of yourself such as making appropriate lifestyle modification after surgery plays an important role in preventing recurrence of haemorrhoids.
If your job requires prolonged sitting in the car, make sure you drink enough water and in cooperate some movements. This is because prolonged sitting will exert a lot of pressure onto the anal region, affecting the blood flow in the haemorrhoids, and may cause recurrence.

Hard stool or constipation can be a problem to us, especially during bowel movement, prolonged constipation may eventually lead to haemorrhoids.
