Had 3 hemorrhoids banded this morning at 11am.

Posted , 3 users are following.

It was just a consultation but he checked me out with a camera up the anus the asked if I was OK with the banding now.

I said yes and thought cool,it's getting sorted.

Been in bad pain ever since and couldn't go back to work.I've taken 6 paracetamol already and they're not touching it.

I thought I had a decent pain threshold lol.Don't know how you girls go through bad periods and labour lol.Definitely the stronger sex.

How long before the pain subsides and none?

Thanks in advance.

     For post op pain, nurofen or cocodomol is much more effective. I'm very surprised you were not prescribed proper pain relief.  Ask your doctor for something stronger if nurofen and cocodomol don't help. I don't know how long it will take for your pain to clear up, you will need to ask your doctor.

      Thanks Pippa.

      They told me not to take Ibuprofen and just paracetamol.

      If I'd of know the pain was this bad,I would of turned it down.👍

       I don't think you were properly advised. Paracetemol is no use for post op pain.  Ibruprofen is generally ok as long as you take it with food or milk, have no history of strokes or ulcers and only take it for short term.  Tell your doctor paracetemol doesn't work for you and push for something stronger.

    I’m guessing ant inflamitories could encourage bleeding and anything codeine based would be constipating. The last thing you need is to be constipated 😖.

    So sorry for your discomfort sounds awful. Best stick to paracetamol until you have a word with your doctor.

      Anti inflammatories are ok as long as you are not intolerant or allergic to them.  Taking them for short term use is fine; long term use however, can cause problems.  You won't get constipated with short term use..

      Forgot to add that often cococodomol is prescribed for post op pain; it should be fine.

    Hey Jonnie,

    Just thought, how about an Ice pack that could be really soothing and bring down the inflammation. Be careful though, don’t put ice directly on your skin. 😊
