    SUPER fun topic...

    the healing process can last approximately 3 weeks depending on how severe they are.

    hemmorhoids are inflamed tissue...they will return if you do something to inflame the tissue...

    you can:

    1. Use epsom salt to ease the pain.
    2. ibuprofen to help shrink
    3. Use a antiinflammatory gel [like preparation H] as prophylaxis

    Plenty of fiber (both soluble and insoluble) and water in your diet should also help with prevention.

    Try Horse Chestnut ... you can buy capsules at Vitamine Shoppe. After about a week your hemi should shrink considerably.

    Eat properly, try to have a bowel movement once per day. Water, more water, and Fiber. Research the side effects (google it). Good luck.

    sorry that your having this problem, I had a similar problem that my doctor described like virricuse (sp?) veins, apparently it started out like hemmeroids in my case, and I had to have them Laser burned off !!!! I had three, and the doctor had to do three laser burns on each to totally burn them off. Nothing for pain, so believe me, if you can emagine your veins being burned off on the back of your hand, then you will have an idea of the pain. I tell you this because you can avoid them getting so bad that you end up like mine were by doing exactly as SockMonkey says !!!!!!!!!!! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    SockMonkey saidPlenty of fiber (both soluble and insoluble) and water in your diet should also help with prevention.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>I cannot stress his advice enough, following it will help your body's illimination processes so that you will not need to strain, which is what generally contributes to your problem. So take it from me, follow his advice and more than likely your problem will go away. Mine is gone too after the burn procedure, but you don't want to go through that now do you???? LOL !!!! (I can laugh now, but I sure wasn't laughing then !!!!! )

    I treated mine with the new Banding treatment (not a surgery).

    It's no pain and works great. See if they have a clinic near you.

    Hemorrhoids are a chronic distension of the veins around the anus. They are more than a simple dermal inflammation.

    Your age does not make you an obvious candidate for hemorrhoids. Has a doctor diagnosed this? You may be suffering from a topical irritation, which can in turn cause a temporary dilation of the blood vessels, mimicking a hemorrhoidal condition. Addressing the irritation can allow the blood vessel swelling to permanently abate.

    There are numerous aggressive treatments for hemorrhoids, including surgical, laser, rubber band and infrared. But until you have a firm diagnosis, I would not advise attempting any hemorrhoid-specific home treatments on your own, which could mask the true cause of the complaint.

    Among the causes of anal inflammation are frequent diarrhea, poor anal hygiene, and in the case of gay men, excessive and/or insufficiently lubricated anal sex. Harmful anal sex practices are a matter for the individual to correct. Resolving diarrhea may require professional medical assistance. Anal hygiene is easily addressed by the individual when the proper protocols are followed.

    Bowel movements bring corrosive fecal contents into contact with the external anal structures. Overly aggressive cleansing with dry toilet paper may create raw skin conditions in which the corrosive effect is enhanced. And incomplete cleansing can leave damaging material in contact with the skin for extended lengths of time. The solution is a thorough yet gentle anal cleansing after each bowel movement.

    A simple method involves bowel regularity with daily bathing habits. The ideal morning bowel movement can be induced with natural laxatives such as caffeinated coffee, tea and high-fiber cereals. The bowel movement should be immediately followed by a shower or bath, to thoroughly clean the anal area. A common mistaken habit is to take a shower soon after awakening, followed by breakfast and a bowel movement. This routine lends itself to inadequate anal cleanliness.

    If additional bowel movements at other times during the day must be made, avoid public restroom toilet papers, which tend to be coarser than residential products. Wet wipes and baby wipes, approved for anal use, are available in thin plastic wallets that can be carried discreetly for use at public toilets. Moistened wipes are also advisable in the home bathroom, for sensitive individuals liable to irritation with all dry toilet papers, or for those experiencing an inflammatory episode.

    I hope some of these suggestions help you to avoid future recurrences of this problem.

    As I work in seniors care I am a bit of an expert on this topic...

    Diet is the best way to go about dealing with them. Eat foods that are high in fiber and whole grains, avoid bleached breads and foods high in sugar.

    Don't push either while going to the washroom, wait until "it's" ready to come.. if its not coming your bodies not ready yet. wait for the moment to come again if you were doing something that kept you from going when you last had the urge.

    And know that they do go.. well they shrink rather.. If you don't eat properly and force the urge to go to the washroom then your going to keep getting them. They can get very bad and be extremly painful in some cases and you might need surgury. Avoid using fiber supplimets like Metimucil as you can become dependent on it for having bowl movements. Instead eat the right foods.

    And if your taken it up the butt from a guy i'd let that stop until they heal. Pepration- H is not a cure, Diet really is the best way to prevent them.

    Try as hard as you can to only have one bowel movement per 7 days. This will cut down on anal irritation and imflammation and hoepfully will rectumfy the situtation

    It, er, depends on the severity of them. I believe they're graded from 1 - 4 (four being the most sever which makes you eligible for surgery). As it's been suggested, if it's not a very sever type, increase your fiber intake and stay hydrated. If you use an enema, just use water; the saline based kinds can dry out the lining of intestinal wall.

    Also, a health clinician once told me that bottoming (using enough lube to make sure not to make the matter worse) can help too. I don't know that this works, but it's fun to think that it can. icon_smile.gif

    Similar to what realifedad said, I had that prblem and had to have it burned off. It was was broken veins and wouldn't go away and I could never get myself fully clean after going to the bathroom.

    It was a painful cheap thrill.....but no more skid marks on my tightie whities. Makes getting naked in front of someone else easier.icon_eek.gif
