  • What to expect after Hemorrhoid surgery

    I decided to start this post for a few reasons.   The first is to give me something to do while going through this.  Second, is maybe get some support from others who have been where I'm at.  And third, to let people know who are considering this surgery what to expect. I turned 50...

It itches around my whole crack plus is now starting to itch near where my vagina is by my butt. I have googled signs of hemorrhoids and it said that Herpes can be the sign as well. I have...

  • Huge External Hemorrhoid...really itchy what should I do?

    I have had an itchy anus before from wiping too hard and have seen some bumps but they never persisted or were intense. Recently, I noticed a HUGE external hemorrhoid larger than a pea. I can feel it as I walk, and when I sit down. I made the stupid decision to shave around that area and it made it worse....

  • Scheduled hemorrhoidectomy, need help/advice please!

    I finally saw a colorectal specialist who diagnosed two large external hms. He said they were resolving but gave me the option of a hemorrhoidectomy anyway, I’ve decided to go for it although I will need to wait up to 4 weeks for it because of NHS waiting  times (I’m in the U.K.).  They no...

  • Devastated over results of Hemorrhoidectomy (pics included)

    Hi everyone. I recently had a Hemorrhoidectomy 10 days ago. I am absolutely devastated by the results. Every time I look I just want to cry. One of the biggest reasons I did this surgery is because the appearance of my hemorrhoids made me self conscious. I know I’m only 10 days post op so not fully healed,...

  • Is this haemorrhoids? (Warning: photo included)

    I am hoping someone is able to inform me just by looking at the photo if this is a haemorrhoid.  I have never had (that I’m aware of, anyway) one so I am not familiar with them. My sister and mother have had them, but obviously I’m too embarrassed to show them the photo. I was on amoxicillin after...

  • Simpe haemorrhoid cure!

    I am so excited I came across this new research how simple apples can help get rid of haemorrhoids. It involves putting a small 3cm cube of apple around the anus area for 3 weeks (overnight). This makes the vessels contract and the haemorrhoid shrivel up and die. And then just once a month maintenance....

  • 8 days post op....

    Bottom line if your suffering from severe pain, get the operation. All the horror stories are from people who wait 4 or 5 days to have a bowel movement, it is inessential you go no later than day 2 days after the operation. The swelling ( muscle spasms ) are the only...

    Hi.  I am getting close to my 2 week out of work mark.  I am wondering how much time you took off work?  I cannot imagine having to have a bowel movement at work.  It is still so painful and such a long ordeal of shower and bath.  So how long did you stay out of work?  Thanks!!!!!
