Ms. Jackson asks:

I had a colonnoscopy and it showed I had an internal hemorrhoid. I have had trouble using the bathroom for years. I complained I have to reposition myself on the toliet still -- even with polyethylene I still have to force and strain to have a bowel movement. Even with diarreh I still have to strain. What should i do? Should I ask for the removal of the hemorrhoid because the meds don't work? It is very painful.


Dear Ms. Jackson,

I believe that at this point you should indeed ask to have that pain in your ass removed, once and for all.

While hemorrhoid surgery is probably one of the most humiliating and post-operatively painful procedures to have to endure, I am sure that you will be happy with the results once the ordeal is over.

While lying in the prone (face down) position, the pelvic area is elevated so that the rump is sticking up in the air. The buttocks are spread apart and usually taped to the operating tabe in order to keep them separated. The rest of the procedure is top secret stuff that I can not tell you about.

There have been many advances in the medical field in the last few decades. Invasive procedures and major surgeries can now be performed with tiny incisions, minimal discomfort and shorter recovery times. This may be true for hemorrhoid surgery as well, but I can't be sure.

Go ahead and have it done so that you can write a report on your experience and tell us all first hand what it was like. Best of luck!

Thanks for asking Motherload!

Hemorrhoids can be terrible.

It sounds like your hemorrhoids are bad enough so the pain stops any of the contractions that propel the poop out.

In this case, I would absolutley have them removed, you will be much better off in the end.

Jeez, its not all that hard - drop trou, sit, shit, and wipe. Pull drawers back up and flush. You can do this. We can help.

That's because all hemorrhoid surgeries are conducted in Area 51 by a special military top secret agency.
If your 'rhoid hurts, have it removed. To the best of my knowledge no one has ever had phantom hemorrhoid pain.

Is this your birthday GGG? If so, happy birthday.

Hopefully Ms. Jackson takes this advice, and has a happier "end".

It was GoGirlie's 13th birthday party Saturday.

MY birthday, however, is NEXT week, as it happens.

Appropriate gifts can be sent via my office.

You were eating birthday cake and looking at/reading about POOP at the same time? You are a strange one; I did enjoy the pun as well.

Before you get the operation, stock up on the meds. They go great with a couple of beers.

Organicas Colon Cleanse beats crap out of Dr Natura Colonix's picture

Hemorrhoids are a pain! But probiotics in Organicas Colon Cleanse @ www.mdNatura.com seems to help. The Dr Natura Colonix loves when you poop money into their cuffers so they insist you buy an extra $88 DrNatura Toxinout just get the probiotics. I shit you not! I'll guess I will stick with Organicas colon Cleanse my physician recommended.

Advances in natural therapy protocols have now made it possible to treat hemorrhoids without surgery. The remedies are safe and effective. Biogetica offers products (C28, C13) that are a unique blend of resonance homeopathic, ayurvedic and biotech products, which have marked action on the anorectal region.* They give prompt relief and control the recurrence of the complaints. These remedies also help in the treatment of concomitant symptoms such as fissures, proctitis, and the causative pathology, which is constipation in a majority of cases.* The digestive tonics included ensure normal digestion and bowel movements, to prevent any future flare-ups.*

The ice as form of cryotherapy really shrinks swollen hemorrhoids on contact, Vit. E (preferred organic) truly will heal the anal/ hemorrhoids are just overnight, but brings relief to burning skin almost immediately.

Oh, VidChat, what a wonderful all-purpose message! I can see it now: You are out in public with an important stranger (say, on a job interview) who suddenly looks stricken and obviously craps his pants. Of course, you say, "It is my great pleasure to have the unique opportunity to comment on this awesome occasion." [At this point the smell becomes overwhelming, and you back away precipitately.] "You have conveyed a very nice message, and I have a full understanding of the subject." At that point, if you are truly polite, you will at least fart loudly, and if possible fill your own pants.

Aw, it was a top quality content. Actually I would like to write like this as well - taking time and real energy to bring about an excellent post... however what can I say... I procrastinate an awful lot and by no means appear to get things completed...

I suffered from internal hemorrhoids, but mine was mild. Other than the itching and irritaion on occassions, I rarely knew that I had this problem. The thing that was more serious was the fissure. Everytime I went to the bathroom, there was blood. But, this too changes once I started drinking more water.

Be thankful that the colonoscopy only showed hemorrhoids. My mother had one a little over a year ago. Hers showed she had 4th stage colon cancer. She is in remission, but it was scary times.

 Hemorrhoids Go Away's picture

First, you really need to see a doctor. IF the medicines are not working, then you may have a more serious problem. Also, try drinking more water. This helped me with constipation and don't just drink the water occassionally. Make it an every day habit. But, still go to your doctor. Why continue to suffer when you don't have to?
