May be thrombosed: A thrombosed hemorrhoid occurs when the blood vessel within the hemorrhoid becomes clotted. It then becomes swollen and painful. The natural history is that the blood clot will eventually dissolve, but it will often takes 2 wks or more. Sitting in a tub of warm water may help with pain, as sell as Proctofoam. But I see a lot of pts who have tried these without relief and they request operation
