Hemorrhoids :: Severe Piles - Suppository And Stool Softener Not Working
Dec 26, 2013
I have had SEVERE piles for the last 5 days. I am only ever away from the toilet or bath for literally 5 minutes at a time before i get an uncontrollable urge to push.

There is a lot of dry flakes of blood that regularly come from the anus, especially while in the bath.
I seen a GP 5 days ago and he prescribed me some suppository and a stool softener but these have had no effect at all.
I telephoned the out of hours NHS direct helpline last night and a GP told me to visit the doctors again when open in 2 days. He suggested to take painkillers such as co codamol but I have read that these should NOT be used when you have piles. I telephoned the out of hours service again a little later and told them EXACTLY what I have written in this post and they told me to just visit the doctor when they reopen in two days time.
I cannot visit the out of hours walk in GP service or go to hospital because the waiting times are so bad that I can't be away from a toilet any longer than, as I said, literally 5 minutes.
I can't help but scream each time I try to pass a stool and when I do it is very small, about the size of a ten pence piece.
My last normal bowel movement was six days ago.
I get spasms and the involuntary urge to push out bright red blood every 10 minutes.
I had some internal hemorrhoids banded yesterday under general anaesthetic , I thought I would be ok today but I seem to be in severe pain. Is the normal.

I am suffering from long term constipation. Everyday I have to move bowels at least 4-5 times a day. My bowels just won't empty in 1 go in morning. The stools I could not pass in one go then become harder. Now I got piles because of this. I try to eat 2 carrots per meal and an apple after meal. But the condition does not improve. I get immediate relief with a laxative - laxido. However I cannot use that forever. And when i leave the laxative, the constipation and piles returns in a week's time. Please has anyone seen such a case of constipation?

After a bout of constipation early this year (I was on a liquid diet because of a throat issue and didn't consume much fiber for 2 weeks), I had 2 bowel movements with a little bright red blood either on the stool or the toilet paper. Started consuming more fiber, it got better for a few months...2 months ago, had a day where I hardly had any water during the day (was out and busy and it just slipped my mind except when I was super thirsty), then I had a little bright red blood again. Today, I was riding a bike, my butt started to hurt. Shortly thereafter, I pooped with a little blood on it. My mom has battled hemorrhoids since she was in college. Do you think I have hemorrhoids or should I be more worried?

No vomiting or diarrhea, no unexplained weight loss or fatigue, no consistent changes in stool size or shape...On occasion, I'll feel a burn when pooping.
Firstly let me explain how it all started. It started a year ago in August 2014, when i found bright red blood drops in my stool. I got really worried. It happened for a couple of days and stopped. Then again after 6 months or so, in Jan2015, it again happened, the bright light drops of blood in stool. This time i straight away went to a gastro doc for a checkup. He recommended the colonoscopy exam. I did that and the report came up with internal hemorrhoids upto acceptable limit. He gave me some laxatives and told me to visit again after 6 months if problem persists. It agian happened after 6 months in June for a week or less. But now, it is again happening after every 1 month. I had it for a week in July, couple of days in August and now from a week or so, in this month too. For this month, i had blood stool for a couple of days and it stopped and now again today it came back, minor. Please let me know if this in any way normal. I fear sometimes that if it's something else than the hemorrhoids, that maybe the exam didn't catch it well or i need to get the exam from a second doc for reassurance, though i have had no other symptons as of yet.

Please advise on this. I feel quite stressed out when it happens. I have these bad thoughts too of cancer and start browsing the net for it.
I have no drinking/smoking and drug habits. I have started eating fruits daily in breakfast, though sometimes i can't avoid my urge to eat non-veg food. i also do regular weight lifting exercises. I am quite a gym addict. I read that lifting heavy weights also cause this. Please i don't want to give up my passion. Please advise.
47 year old sufferer and worried. Do i have these for life and it's all down to managing them, short of surgery of course?

I'll start off by saying that my father died of rectal cancer at the age of 39, and was diagnosed at the age of 32.

A couple of months ago, I found a small lump in my anus, that hurt every time I went to the bathroom(and sometimes when I sat down, if I had been constipated). Said lump is sort of blue-ish. It feels soft when I press it. I haven't had any sort of bleeding, only when I was constipated, and it was too much for my anus.
I am scared, as I don't know if it is a hemorrhoid, or cancer. I'm only sixteen, but the young age at which my father was diagnosed(Note that he was diagnosed, not that he got it at 32), worries me. My girlfriend has asked me several times to go to the doctor, as she had a look, and she described it as "not normal looking", and said it looked swollen.
I hope you will be able to give me an answer from the information provided.
Have been having problems for around 5 months and sadly have not had much luck with any gp that I have seen not one has given me a digital exam and now I have badly thrombosed piles and have been forced to go to A&E for pain control including taking entonox while they are massaged by the doctor the pain to begin with was the worst I have ever felt infact I could not carry on without the gas.

I now have to wait who knows how long for a operation and hope A & E will look after me until then I am at my whits end and getting desperate.
I am a 19 year old male that got my first serious hemorrhoid around a month ago, there was slight bleeding when using the toilet however apart from that with ointment and care the pain subsided.

However three days ago the pain returned as bad as it was last time, yesterday I began bleeding heavily (leaving one pair of underwear ruined) and subsequently I went to my local hospital who said I should see a consultant this morning.
I did that, and he was useless, however confirming it was an external hemorrhoid that had ruptured. I have been booked for a camera in 8 weeks time and his only advice was to change everything about my lifestyle (time to give up all indulgences yay).
It has not stopped bleeding, and even walking from my local supermarket left me having to wash my anus as well as changing my underwear again.
My question is, how long will it take for the bleeding to stop, and is there anything I can do to help stop the bleeding as in my current state I don't want to leave my bed let alone face the prospect of work. I live in the UK so luckily healthcare is free, however I am open to home remedies as well.
Have any you tried banding for piles what are your thoughts and experiences?

I've had "bloody" diarrhea for 2 years now, it comes in kind of flare ups, it first starts with normal diarrhea and then i get a lot of blood!

I had a colonoscopy last year because doctors thought i could have crohn's or ulcerative colitis but everything looked normal, not even an hemorrhoid or fistula or anything, but the thing is i wasn't having any symptoms when i had the colonoscopy done, i didn't have diarrhea or bleeding or anything!
So is it possible to have hemorrhoids that are only visible when i get the bleeding? or whatever else..
Please answer ASAP!! im very worried, i have a doc appointment in nov 25th but i've had bloody diarrhea for 2 weeks now, so if he orders another colonoscopy i will be already without diarrhea, as i know how long these diarrhea attacks last.
They were massive, Dr said she could barely get them all inside the tube They use to do the stapling. The recovery was horrible, but i I am feeling better now. Still can't eat anything to Hardy just because out will make me bleed when it comes out.

I had op 17 days ago and feel today like I can finally see the light! After suffering the agony, bleeding (continually wearing san towels) and life changing effects they bring you i finally decided to have the op. I have had a terrible 17 days 2 visits to docs and 2 to hospital. part of the prob was caused by managing pain relief, allergic to anti-inflammatories, Tramadol gave me a panic attack and made me vomit, been on 60mg codeine 4 X per day and have been more or less sleeping in the bath. Saw surgeon day 15 who told me the op had worked and delay in recovery was because i couldn't take anti-inflam. He offered me morphine for the terrible pain which I declined. Had 6 hours sleep longest since op (only been cat napping due to pain) so cut down on codeine all positive today. Then I went the loo and felt a lump come out like my old piles (only 1 use to have quite a few), now stressing that I have had a prolapse. The surgeon warned me I would have flaps of skin left but this feels more hard and shiny sorry to be graphic!! Just wondered if anyone else had experienced this and whether it would go down again, I have never been able to push them up as some people mention.

I was put on antibiotics and steroids for an infection, but now I'm dealing with what I assume is a rather large hemorrhoid. My anus is very swollen and tender, but there is no itching or bleeding. I got some OTC cream but it's not helping...same with a warm bath and using wipes instead of tissue. I would feel silly going to the doctor for this, especially because I don't have a trusted GP, and my "lady" doctor says it's not their problem. Can you even have a hemorrhoid without itching? The pain is unbelievable, and comparable to the level of pain associated with my c sections. So what should I do? And do you have anything that works for you? Natural methods preferred.

I've been to see a consultant this afternoon and he has recommended a haemorrhoidectomy and the process to that is now in motion. Apparently my piles are Grade 3.

I have to say that the thought of this operation does not really appeal, especially after I've read various reports of just how unpleasant and painful the process is.
I've read about the HALO method which doesn't seem quite as barbaric but when I mentioned this to the consultant he seemed to dismiss it.
I have just made an appointment to chat with my GP who referred me to the consultant to see if he can offer any possible alternatives.
One thing the consultant did say was that if the piles were left untreated they could become ulcerative which obviously would then make the whole situation more serious.
While I realise the clock is now ticking down to the time when I go in for an operation in the end it's my body and I have the ultimate say on whether I go ahead with it.
