Yes I have dealt with thrombosed hemorrhoids this year--they really are unmistakeable so I do not understand how your doctors did not give you a diagnosis.
They are incredibly painful and I'm sorry you are enduring this pain. I did not have dilaudid as pain management for my flare or fistula or hemorrhoids--I used Vicodin sparingly and my GI's discouraged pain meds.
My GI's, who specialize in IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) would not even consider touching the hemorrhoids while I was flaring--you will not heal properly and it will aggravate your flare. I would not let them perform any procedures if I was you. At least get a second opinion from someone outside the hospital you are in--from an IBD specialist.
