SO I developed hemorrhoids in 2007 while pregnant with my daughter. They were AWFUL. The doctor insisted they would clear up after. She is 5 I still have them. Most are internal and protrude every time I have a BM-sometimes even when I haven't.
The Dr tried tying them with rubberbands at one point and I had no reliefe. Fast forward to Thanksgiving week:
I began having a lot of pressure in my backside that never abates ( I am not constipated). It boarders on pain often. I feel the pain inside and as if there is something there that wants out. After a BM the other day the hemorrhoids were very red and noticalble so I checked them out.
There was one section that was very dark red and looks like there was a sore or an area that has been a sore on it.
When do I freak out and call the doctor back and get a check up? He basically told me to call back if I had decided to do surgery only. Its been weeks of this discomfort...I do have to say though having a BM isn't really pianful at all, and I only saw a little blood for the first time in months the other day.
I used that for a long while post delivery with no results. I ignored them forever until we tried the rubberbanding thing. That was just uncomfortable for days but with zero results. I guess I just have to buck up and call for the appointment to see other options. Uggg
