  • Out of Work

    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!!!!!

  • Hemorrhoids for over a year

    Ok.  A year ago I had a DRE and was diagnosed with hemorrhoids and I still feel the affects of them.  The internal ones bother me the most and I wonder if I was misdiagnosed.  There is no bleeding or pain but constant irritation.  Don’t know what to do.  Prep h does not help.

  • Can increased fibre really help to heal fissures /piles?

    I visited my doctor today following bleeding after BM for 3 weeks now, beating my previous record by 4 days. I told him how Creams had made no difference, nor stool softeners or spending less time on the loo and asked if I could try rectogesic instead. He refused and said it wouldn't help heal a...

  • kindly suggest urgently

    30 years back I was operated for Internal Hemorreage, and it is ok but with one problem. The natural passage of anus is almost 80 percent less in diameter which creates very hard pressure in passing stools. Can anyone suggest what to do to increase the passage and make to normal size ??
