  • Recovery- there is light at the end of the tunnel

    I used this site daily as I thought I was having more pain and more swelling than I should. This procedure was definitely worse than I had anticipated and I believed the whole “back to normal in 1-2 weeks”. The first couple weeks are definitely miserable no doubt about it. However, now 3 weeks post op,...

  • Haemorrhoids and Intermittent Bleeding

    I’ve literally had this issue since I was 17 and I’m now 49. I’ve had 2 colonoscopies because of this nonsense (most recent 2012). I’m a very small person so it’s not due to me being overweight, it’s just something in my family and well, it sucks. Anyway I recently bought a new multivitamin that has...
