plz reply soon. regards
You really need to discuss these things with your surgeon. Hemorrhoid surgery, called a hemorrhoidectomy, does not usually cause hair loss… though I suppose it is possible that stress from the surgery could cause some form of temporary hair loss (telogen effluvium).
General anesthesia is sometimes referenced as causing general hair loss, but this is generally reversible.
