How to successfully treat hemorrhoids without surgical procedures?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 21, 2013 at 9:07 PM

Sorry if if this is too graphic... I have internal hemmorhoids which prevent my bottom from fully closing up. After having a procedure done, the problem was somewhat alleviated by not gone altogether.

Being a student, it's rather costly to see a doctor (who I don't know if I can fully trust or not), so for the past 3 weeks I have been using this device 2x/day. The situation has gotten better but it hasn't been completely resolved.

I plan on adding pelvic floor exercises to my regimen to see if they will help me recover completely from this condition.

What else can I do?

P.S. the hemorrhoid(s) don't hurt at all, surprisingly enough-- all the articles on the net talk about bleeding and pain-- and my case is completely different. I don't feel anything but *discomfort* when I sit or stand in one place for longer than 5 minutes.

Thanks for advising me on this, I really needed someone to hear me out. I'm going to contact that doctor and talk to him about the issues I'm experiencing and try to get this problem resolved within the next 3 months. BTW, is there any way we could stay in touch in case I need to talk with you again about this?

I wouldn't immediately suspect the doctor of milking you for money, but again, that's possible I suppose. You may have a dramatic case that needs more attention after the stapling. FWIW, even before my surgery, I slowly figured out that I responded poorly to gluten and beans, and cut those out. Finding like minded individuals in the paleo world a couple years ago made me happy/ :-) Regardless of what procedures need be done in your case, definitely stay on the paleo track!

I am surprised to hear that you had the stapling and aren't closer to 100%. Granted, I'm only at something like 95% of what I'd imagine someone who had never suffered this should be at, but the stapling took me from 5% to 95% back to normal. How far out from the stapling surgery are you? I avoided exercise for about 3 months after, and then *eased* myself back into anything that strained my lower body. Granted, now I love all sorts of lower body strengthening. :-) I can't imagine a stapling going awry in such a way that "they didn't do enough" (so to speak), but I suppose its possible.

Yeah, internal hemorrhoids don't cause direct pain, as they are above the line where nerves begin (which is pretty much near the anus, and why external hemorrhoids can hurt so much).

Thanks for responding man! I didn't think that anyone would actually reply because this is somewhat of a *rare* issue. Getting back to the topic, the doctor did 2 procedures: the first was rubber band ligation and the second was a pph stapling procedure. The reason why I don't trust this doctor is because I thought that by the time he got done with those 2 procedures, the problem would have been resolved; however, since it didn't (it has gotten noticeably better though), I have suspicions that maybe he's just trying to milk me for as much money as he can. Am I being overly suspicious?

Tagging post with 'hemorrhoid' might be helpful (I can't do it myself yet).

Oh man, oh man, I get to use this image again ...

People that haven't had internal hemorrhoids don't understand how terrible they can be. Nearly everyone will get an external hemorrhoids at some point, it'll hurt for a bit, and go away. Sadly, internal hemorrhoids tend to get worse. You should have had your doctor "grade" your condition. I'm guessing you are at a 3 or 4 (prolapsed + can be manually reinserted or permanently prolapsed), since you had a procedure.

Was the procedure banding? 'Cause honestly, banding doesn't work. Well, I'm not a doctor (I just play one on the 'net), but I firmly believe that banding is tried much, much too late to be effective.

After years (and I really mean YEARS: about 6), with my own condition growing worse and worse, I finally talked to a specialist about a hemorrhoidopexy. This is sometimes known as "stapling" -- basically, they shove a terrible device up there, remove the excess flesh, suture it, and you no longer have severe, prolapsing internal hemorrhoids.

I finally went the route of surgery, 'cause while I caused the problem to stop getting worse with a great diet, it didn't get better. By this time, it interfered with my ability to exercise - and you know what I replaced exercise with? Drinking. Yeah, great, I know: an amazing diet plus heavy drinking equals a pretty shitty diet and life.

Food and diet is all about preventative health and some healing, but sometimes surgery is a necessary evil. Let me tell you: it hurt. It hurt like hell. I was out of commission for two weeks, and not 100% for a long time (probably 3ish months). But if I had to do it again, I would. I absolutely would. I can stand for long times, I can run, jump, and I can play sports with friends. I can spend time not worrying about my ass finally, and get back to living.

I'm not embarrassed to talk about it, because the only thing that gave me peace of mind when I was suffering was knowing that I could talk to others: internet forums for these types of conditions exist, and I talked to friends and loved ones, too. I want you to know that you can get better.

If you are a student, you may be lucky enough to have a support system that can help you while you recover after a hypothetical surgery. You can even schedule it for after school is out.

Talk to your doctor about a stapling / hemorrhoidopexy. Take your life back into your hands.

Take a warm bath - Fill a bath with warm water to about 10cm. Ease yourself into the bath for approximately fifteen minutes and sit back with knees raised. This position will enable maximum exposure of the anal area to the warm water and will kill pain and soothe any irritation in the area.

Apply a topical cream or ointment. The use of topical creams can aid greatly in the healing process.

To prevent hemorrhoids it is incredibly important that you develop good toilet habits. Having bowel movements regularly can diminish pressure in rectum.
