Has anyone ever had to go have a surgon remove a hemrroid?  Just curious what to expect...I've never had a hemrroid until this flare up. Do they knock you out?  Is it done in the office or hospital? What's the recovery time?  Should I expect more to appear?

Assuming you're having external hemmies removed they do knock you out. It's a pretty quick procedure, relatively speaking. I think my recovery time was about 2 weeks, but I had "quite a bit of work done" according to the surgeon. It felt like a bee had stung me in my butt! Definitely worth going through though for the relief it offered.
You may or may not get more. I've had 1 internal hemmerhoid treatment and 1 external treatment, but none for several years.

Nowadays they do tend to band hemmies rather than cutting them as cutting them can sometimes lead to issues with healing quickly and pain.

Pharmacy Student, Class of 2009.  Diagnosed 8/99.  Suffered for almost 10 years.  I am currently on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and am nearing remission.  I feel fantastic!    I have lost so many years to this disease.  I decided to become a pharmacist to understand these drugs, and to help fellow sufferers of IBD.  My goal is to open up a pharmacy and take care of my patients(particularly explaining what the drugs do to you), compound special medications, and have a great practice. HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE SCD DIET? IT HAS PUT ME IN REMISSION AND I PLAN ON GETTING OFF THE ASACOL SOON TOO!  (In remission since 2/15/08)
Meds 3200 mg Asacol, 2.5 mg Prednisone.  Doc wanted to put me on 6-mp or Remicade, but I refused to take the medications!  For me, diet works...
