Hey guys, I'm in a similar situation here. Been on Pred for 3 weeks 40 mg, bleeding and mucus stopped so I started to drop the dose 20mg now. and I'm doing ok. But my hemorrhoids are out of control, massive, and the anus is inflamed. For one week now I've done Hydrocortisone suppositories at night and day, plus Hydrocortisone Acetate 2.5% + Pramoxine HCI 1% cream - but very little progress if any. Stools are getting formed but having to force them through an inflamed anus is making situation worse. doing sitz baths after every bowel movement too. this stuff used to work.
I will try to fiber intake, and fruits and few vegetables.
I will meet with dr. on Monday - I'm thinking to do some type of invasive procedure for hemorrhoids, I can't be "shoving" them back in after every bm ... this time they're as big as a plumb, fills the inner of my palm. Any suggestions opinions are welcomed! I've been barricaded in my home for over a week now.
