How Long Hemorrhoids Supposed To Last?

Nov 12, 2007

I've had internal hemorrhoids for the last few months. It seemed as if they were going down at first, but then they've stayed the same size and keep coming out every bowel movement attempt. The doctor has scheduled a flexible sigmoidoscopy in about 3 weeks and they don't seem to concerned about it, but I am. I'm seeing that most people's hemorrhoids go away in a couple of weeks. What should I do?

Hemorrhoids :: How Long Before Doctor Referred You?

I was wondering how long you all suffered before the doctors referred you. To a specialist or for surgery?

I've been suffering with an external prolapsed hemorrhoid for two weeks now. I'm in agony all day and the pain wakes me up at night.

due to other health conditions i need my sleep and no stress as it makes it worse. So i feel at the minute that i can't cope.

i've been to the doctor three times but they said they wouldn't even consider the next option until it's been "months and months"

i've been given anusol cream and suppository.

Personality Disorders :: Don't Feel Emotions When I Supposed To

I don't if I supposed to feel like this. I feel emotion but i don't feel it when I'm supposed to. I know when i do something it's bad but I usually don't feel bad. i can't relate to people or know I'm hurting someone emotionally. the only time i cry is when i get hurt. Sounds nerdy but the only thing i like is playing video games and riding by myself on my bike. I don't know. Just hope some comments with questions to ask so I know if this is normal or i'm just weird. I don't know. T

I think I may be having something similar going on. About five days before I was supposed to remove my nuvaring, I was spotting light brown discharge and now that I have removed it at its right time, I seem to be having my period mixed with the brown discharge on top of a decent amount of clotting. Should I be concerned?

Hemorrhoids :: Thrombosed Internal Hemorrhoids Not Responding To Injections

My internal hems. are not responding to a doctor's injections. They (3) are not major, but I wish (almost) they would become thrombus so it/they could be cut out. I had that years ago.

The pain is not so great as to cause bleeding, toilet trouble but the pain is there every day for two months.

Putting on ointments in public toilets all the time to cool the pain. Awful. Inconvenient and interferes with daily life.

Gets worse with stress.

Getting desperate, looking online - Venapro. But online wonder-meds never seem to work so I'm sceptical.

Hemorrhoids :: After Unprotected Sex?

Around my anus feels hard and lumpy and now today i noticed one lump is visible. It looks like a little bubble/sack of blood. Do hemorrhoids contain blood? I can press on it and push it in a bit it feels soft inside. Do hemorrhoids feel soft and can be pushed or are they hard and solid?

Also the only thing i can think of is having sex with a stranger 4 weeks ago. He wore a condom but i was drunk and can't remember if it came off or broke or if he took it off so i am worried could that have caused this? Does it sound like a hemorrhoid or a wart caused by stds? We didn't have anal just vaginal but i know it's all connected and close together. I'm worried because i don't know what it is if it s a hemorrhoid or not

Hemorrhoids - Here's How To Live With Them

I feel it is my duty to share my information that I have gathered on this problem from my pricy doctor and share this information for free.

First do not clean area with soap it is only going to make it worse and more pain full and dry out the area. Most people think that the itching means their dirty so they will use excise amounts of soap actually making the problem worse.

My case was so bad I had to buy a plastic seat cover and sit my butt in the warm water for 15 minutes 2 times a day for 5 weeks. Let me tell how much this relieved the pain. It cost around 35 dollars and is a well worth the money.

Then you must purchase Prax lotion this stuff works amazing and use every time after you use the bathroom. After a 2 days I was able to have a full nights rest.

Then buy Calmol 4: use them for up to 4 times a day. It's very awkward to get used to and this is coming from a guy but I don't know what I would do.

I am telling you if you follow these directions you will be fine in a matter of 2 weeks after the first time of this treatment it was truly amazing felt like my old but again.

I no longer have to use the seat or the lotion. I am just using the Calmol 3-4 times a week once or twice a day and it is proving its effectiveness. It may seem like a lot but if you want to be comfortable and be able to go on trips and not worry then please follow these steps.


Not one to be on a super health kick but I do not eat fast food often but I do have my fare share of Pizza's chinese food and cheese steaks god I love cheese steaks could go for one right now extra hot peppers but anyway I also drink heavy on the weekends I'm talking like black out drunk. I'm not saying its going to work for everyone but this has been working for me for the past year without any blood when I wipe and what not. After a nights of drinking I apply the Calmol 4 and a nice wipe with the lotion and I am back in action. Also try to stay away from the soda.

**** Sorry for the rant but I think it is my duty for spending so much at the butt doctor and it could have been resolved if he told me these steps and I could have saved a bunch of money like in the thousands of dollars. I had to see him once a month costing 600 a visit for almost 8 months. Almost made me go broke.

Why You Need To Treat Hemorrhoids

This post is simply me sharing my story so other people may not make the same mistake as I did. I am a 27 y/o male. I first noticed hemorrhoid issues when I was 20, just an occasional flare up for a week or 2 out of the year, no big deal. Each year it continued to flare up more and more. Until for the past year or so every time I would have a bowel movement there would be bleeding sometimes just a couple drops in the water sometimes blood sprayed all over. Still I did not seek treatment besides trying not to strain. Then an unrelated health issue sent me to my Doc, in the course of this he did all the blood tests known to man I think. My consistent bleeding for over a year had made me anemic with a hemoglobin of only 8.3, two weeks later hemoglobin of 8.0 and an extremely low testosterone level as well which was caused by the chronic anemia. The hematologist had me immediately scheduled for an appointment with a surgeon. Endoscopy, Colonoscopy, and a Banding. The banding at first didn't seem to bad, luckily I was knocked out for the colonoscopy so I wasn't awake for the banding. However, the next week was constant pain, and the first two days were nearly unbearable. I've never had a problem with hemorrhoids that seem to remain outside the body until after this procedure not sure if the banding or colonoscopy could have worsened that condition. However 2 weeks after the banding I still have hemorrhoids and the symptoms were worse than ever: pain, itching, burning. Well I had already decided unless the bleeding was extreme again I WOULD NOT go back for another dr visit. I tried sitz bath (which for me over the years have always seemed to provide quick relief BUT then cause worse inflammation in a few hours). I tried ACV on cotton balls, painful and after a week didn't notice any improvement. During this entire time I had also converted to a high fiber diet. After the ACV I continued high fiber diet, using a stacker to put my feet on when I'm having a bowel movement, and using tucks witch hazel in the morning and before bed. With those I finally am symptom free. However, I am going to keep doing these thing forever because it seems to me that hemorrhoids, once they get out of control, will never go away completely. You just have to treat them and manage them and you will remain symptom free but if you go back to the same old habits. They will come back same as before. I am still on an iron supplement and taking testosterone shots as well.

Hemorrhoids After Abortion

About 6 weeks ago I had a medicinal abortion. I bled for two weeks straight, then stopped for two weeks and started again, which according to everyone was normal. After the 5-6 days of my period, it stopped again, but then a day later I started to get a brown discharge and I've been getting it for the past week (so that's a total of 14 days of something coming out). I heard this too was normal. However, I have been suffering from hemorrhoids and constipation for the 4-5 months (even b4 my pregnancy) and today when I had to go to the bathroom my hemorrhoids acted up and I strained, like an hour later I went to change my pad and I was literally bleeding (red) again. Now I understand that the brown discharge and on and off bleeding is normal, but is it possible that by straining I am actually preventing my uterus from healing?
