At last I have found a site that tells it how the excision of haemorrhoids really feels.
I have suffered with internal ones over the last 10 years, initially started after childbirth.
As I got older I am a fit 72 year old, so the condition worsened. eXroid electro theraphy worked initially but my consultant called time.
I am now in day 6 after surgery and boy the consultant never told me about the agony, he just said take it easy, keep stools soft see you in 6 weeks!
The first BM was on day 3, I was sobbing on the loo. I passed a lot of blood but after each subsequent time I held a warm hand shower to the area to cleanse and it gave relief and sitting in a warm bath helps too.
On day 4, I took a mild laxative which although the BM was agony has kept things moving gently.
Resting on the bed when the pain and discomfort get too much has helped me.
I initially took Ibuprofen as directed but now only when the discomfort gets too much. Leakage and passing blood has eased but the swelling around the opening is bad, once that begins to go down I hope things will get easier.
Thank you to everyone for their frank, tell it how it is information and helpful hints and encouragement.
Surgery was my only option but I do not regret having it. Each week I tell myself things will get easier and thank goodness for Netflix! and Agatha Christie books.
