Response from Dr. Henry

Surgical procedures including hemorrhoid surgery usually go well in HIV+ persons. Drug interaction concerns would be minimal. I have had scores of patients undergo a wide range of procedures (from hemorrhoids to transplants or heart bypass surgery or hip replacement) and the recovery process has generally gone well with good basic general medical supervision.
