  • Prescription-only treatment in the UK?

    Will GP be able to prescribe something better than what you can get over the counter? Had problems before - thromosed one that was surgically removed.  Had no problems since (18 months ago) but seems to have flared up again. Dont seem as painful or big as last time.

  • Booked in for Banding on mid July

    Hello all, Well I finally worked up the courage to book on my banding. I am getting one large hemorrhoid banded and injected in July. I am scared but also hoping for the best. I have a few hemorrhoids but read it best to do one at a time. I would love any after care tips :-)

  • My Experience - 7 Weeks After Nhs Halo And Haemorrhoidectomy

    I am a 49-year old male and had stage 3 piles for about 5 years. They never really caused me any pain or suffering per se but were an inconvenience. I had been to my GP ages ago to make sure it wasn't anything serious. Towards the end of 2009 I decided to see what options I might have for sorting...

  • Inquiry into Scar Tissue after Hemorrhoidectomy Complications

    I had the most excruciating expirience with an impaction that began with unholy pain, pouring sweat, vomiting, and screaming. It lasted about 30 min. of me manually evacuating the problem followed by me crying in an Epsom salt bath. I had a hemorrhoidectomy about three weeks ago (never have this surgery...

  • Almost Two Weeks Post-op + Constipation

    I'm an 18 year old girl and I've had haemorrhoids off and on for the past two years. At first when I went to the doctor for it, describing my condition (which at the time I didn't know the name of) she straight up told me what I was describing didn't exist so I felt discouraged and just...

  • Back again - had surgically removed 18 months ago

    Had an issue 18 months ago. Really bad pain. GP sent me to hospital to have removed immediately. Apparently, it had swollen quite a bit an gone a bit funny (herniated?). To be fair, they did it same day under local anaesthetic and had no more problems. However, recently, I've been getting pain again....

  • Haemmorhoidectomy 8 days in

    Hi guys Looking for some reassurance if possible! Recovery is very slow. Other than the post BM bleeding easing right off, the pain after passing a stool is no better and the swelling is so much worse than before the op. So far, there is no day on day difference. I go away in 4 weeks and would really...

  • First ever hemorrhoid - should I see the doctor?

    So I'm 21 and never had a hemorrhoid before - I'm assuming I got it due to genetics, because my dad had them all the time, and every website I've looked at said that's a huge contributing factor. I'm studying in London for the summer, so I've been doing my best to ignore it in...

  • Hemorrhoids never go away?

    also painful but they have subdued and now are reddish prominent wrinkles and kind of like 'flaps'. After wiping they will look even more prominent and might even become more bulbous, but never hurt. I want them to go away. How?

The Day of the Procedure I had to fast from 7am for admission to hospital at 11am. They said no prep but I did a suppository anyway just in case. They wheeled my into theatre...

  • Preparing for a haemorrhoidectomy

    In the great scheme of things, a haemorrhoidectomy is way down the list of serious medical interventions, unless, of course, there are complications. I’m a fit and healthy 69 year old male who had a haemorrhoidectomy on the 1st March 2017. The operation itself went relatively well and eventually (a month...

  • Banding #3 - THE END!

    Had my 3rd and final banding on Wed. June 7. Third one seems to be the charm. I can honestly say this must be how the Dr who hasn't had banding but is advising means when they say... some people go to work the same afternoon - although that very first day was painful, it's been pretty much a...
