A prospective clinical study to evaluate the role of “Ayugesic” Guda Varti for pain management in post operative cases of Open Haemorrhoidectomy
Pain can be described as any physical suffering or discomfort caused by an illness or injury. Pain is a symptom which affects a patient mentally as well as physically. It is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience arising from actual or potential tissue damage. In Ayurveda various terms such as Ruja, Vedana and Shoola are commonly used for pain. Amongst all the cases operated for ano rectal diseases miligan morgan’s haemorrhoidectomy has the maximum post operative pain. Keeping in mind this post-operative pain and limitations for giving oral medication in the immediate post operative period we have chosen to use Ayugesic Suppository made up of Vedana Shamak and Shoolhara Dravya mentioned by Acharya Sushruta for Vedana Shamana.
