Never in my life had I had hemmroids until I got UC. The constant going to the bathroom and the pushing out of my anus, that I didn't do voluntarily gave me the hemmroids. I went to a rectal surgeon he said only surgery will get rid of them, they are interal but fill up with blood and come out so they are called exteral. I'm doing infered laser now and it's not helping with my bad hemi. they say 4-6 visits and i'm on my 5th and the doctor say "maybe you should see a surgeon" I was about to kill him. Plus this s over $3,000 if you don't have insurance or $20 a visit if you do. I'm so frustrated, they promise you the hemis will be fixed, but it didn't. This doctor too on one occasion did something funny with the thing he interts and pooked at my butthole a few times and said I trying to see if your muscles work, anyways it was weird all together. You know when you get that funny feeling like somethings not right? I did with this guy and he didn't do it the first two times. Weird. He was a gynocoligist (I can't spell worth poop) but now he's working for this hemmroid company, that doesn't add up either.
