Hemorrhoids effects: I understand you distress. You deserve relief from the hemorrhoids. Let Wise Person in you ask for stresses of: • Discomfort • Pain • Daily Functioning • Quality of Life • Embarrassment • Then Focus on Quality of Life and see a Surgeon for Diagnosis and Treatment. Your Health is Precious!
