Hi stomach man... Welcome to Healing Well :-)

You may post how you were helped with your problem given it does not advertise or promote any products or services that you have vested interest in. I think we would like to hear what helped you.

Take Care

I'm not promoting anything!
 
I've been through rubber-band ligation and infrared heat and I've got my story on how to get a handle on this issue, after going through lots of other stuff as well!
 
If anyone wants info, they can post their story and I'll be more than happy to give them my experience with the procedures & treatment efficacy. Plus a few tricks that I've researched and discovered on my own.
 
We'll need to get graphic in some instances, so be forewarned, but there is help and I'm more than willing to share my views & history!

Hi stomach man,
Welcome to HealingWell! :-)

You're right, scaredygirl did post in your thread. However, the site Admin deleted the post as it was irrelevant to your topic. Sorry for the false alarm.

Were all of your hemmies external? A number of our members seem to suffer from the internal ones. I don't know that they will do much about them unless they really interfere with bowel movements. Which, I think, brings up a good question for the guys and gals on the board to get an answer for: at what point DO you need to seek intervention for hemmroids? A lot of people have them to bleed and aren't sure what to do. In most cases, I know they can be left alone, but in your experience, at what point do you need to get help with them?

Mine were internal. You don't feel pain usually with internal hemmies because there are very few nerves in that area.

Whenever bleeding occurs they need to be checked out.

The key to curing/fixing them is to reduce constipation and the straining that follows from hard stools.

Infrared treatments are less effective than the rubberband ligation and take much longer in series of treatments.

Flaxseed oil softgels (1000-1200mg) 4-5X per day will lubricate the lining of the colon and aid in the passage of stools.

Citrucel is the best form of fiber to take, because it is one of the few sources that will not produce excess gas. It is imperative that stools become soft and fiber will enable that process to occur.

Drink lots of water, as the colon removes water from the stool and can leave them hard and difficult to pass.

A hard stool can scratch a hemmie on the way out and cause it to bleed.

It is essential to go on a regime of products mentioned above and NOT skip even one day!

Prunce juice ( usually one cup-1 1/2 ) in the evening will facilitate regularity and aid in the repair process.

more to come........ask away!

I would also add that I have read that spending too much time on the toilet--either sitting there trying to have a movement, or sitting there with lots of D, can also make them worse. Something about that particular position and the way the toilet seat is made that puts strain on them.

Thanks for sharing your tips on how to deal with constipation. I think the flaxseed oil recommendation is a new one on me. Have you ever tried the aloe vera capsules? If so, do you recommend the flaxseed over them for any reason?

That is wonderful stomach man that you have come to share this information with us. Lots of good information. I suffer from lots of constipation and they gave me horrible hemorrhoid problems but since I started taking fiber a few years ago, even with the occasional constipation, I don't have the hemorrhoid flare ups. I also take vitamin E and fish oil which I think also helps with the lubrication of the colon so that I'm sure makes a difference also.

Thank you again for this information. I'm certain that it will help many!! :-)

The vitamin E can cause excessive bleeding if you're prone to bleeding hemmies. So I would not take them if you are so inclined.
 
Sitting on the bowl is a no no.
 
Waiting until the urge is strong and then squatting rather than sitting ( as they do in China) and WITHOUT pushing is the best procedure to use when defecating. Let gravity be your aid.
 
The use of Prep H creme, before & after defecation and moist wipes like Cottonelle is also very helpful in not irritating the hemmie while it's in the healing phase.
 
A bleeding hemmie takes many days to form a protective coating about the inflammed area. The membrane is very thin and can easily bleed chronically if the above mentioned measures are not used.
 
The hemmie is an arterial vessel and high blood pressure can also interfere with the healing process.

Stand before wiping!
 
Your internal hemmie can be exposed while sitting and the last thing you want to do is wipe the hemmie!

Yike, that is harder to do. I have short arms. LOL The one time I had a bleeding one my Dr. wanted me to go in for some proceedure that he did. Once I read the booklet and talked to some friends that have had the bleeding I backed out and so far it has not happened again. It sounds as if bleeding hemmies are pretty common. I have heard that about sitting on the john too long, not the same as sitting in a chair but I think maybe too much chair sitting could contribute to them.

My husband and I both have IBS to an extent, mine from my fibro, his from who knows what.
 
He went to his gastro and he said he has hemmies and gave him stuff to try, as they have REALLY been bothering my husband (pain/tingling feelings, irritation, not much bleeding) this has been going on for about 2 years!! Not bad enough for surgery, nothing seems to help him. He's even tried some weird cream from some Dr in CA that has caspian in it, yikes!! He tries soft wet clothes to wipe, witch hazel, 3 different kinds of creams from the Dr and OTC stuff, sitz bathes and changing undies a few times a day. Nothing helps. He doesn't have C or D, in fact the lucky guy has a normal BM every day like clockwork!! He just gets cramps from IBS trigger foods and sometimes gets both C and D. But mostly its the hemmies getting him. He says they feel like prickles around his anus.
 
Anything that may help him I'd be very interesed in hearing!! I'll try to see if the flaxseed helps.
 
Dh is convinced it's not the little hemmies bothering him. He thinks it's just irritation. ?? Not sure what to do for him?!

Sounds to me like he's got external hemmies.

This product works great for those..................I still use it periodically to keep them in check, even though they have not flared up. This product is good for external AND internal.

Another suppository that is recommended by doctors is Calmol 4. Very benign ingredients and will ease the first stool by coating it with a layer of butterfat. Use it before going to bed.

While sitting on the throne it's also helpful to elevate both feet.

Use a small box etc.

This repositions the anal canal and enables the stool to exit with less forcing on your part.

Kris,

It's important to make note of all of the foods which trigger the IBS and then AVOID those foods!

He might be lactose intolerant as well.

There are products designed to offset those enzyme deficiencies, but it's best to just avoid the "trouble foods".

When he gets constipated and pressure builds up in the lower colon, it can be causitive in producing his hemmies!

I see you had the rubberband treatment. I assume you have not had full removal of the hemm's. I started a differnt thread but thought you might have some insight. If so look forward to your response.

Total surgical removal is only for very extreme cases. I don't recommend this unless absolutely necessary and only if you've exhausted all other options.

If one has moderate-severe, it can be controlled through procedures such as rubberband ligation and diet.
