Why would I still have bleeding from internal hemorrhoids 2 weeks after having the banding ligation procedure done?

Thrombosing: Banding hemorrhoids causes them to thrombose, or clot off. But this may shift venous flow to other dilated veins in the rectum leading to new hemorrhoids. So it's either that the old hemorrhoids have clotted but continue to ooze, or that new hemorrhoids have formed. You should ask your doctor to examine you for more information.

I had banding two weeks ago and two laser coagulation a for hemorrhoids, how long does it take for inflammation and bleeding to get better?

I had banding two weeks ago and two laser coagulation a for hemorrhoids, how long does it take for inflammation and bleeding to get better?

It varies.: What a pain in the "you know what! " - (You should notice gradual improvement in the next few weeks. Follow your doctor's aftercare instructions. Use gentle baby wipes after a bowel movement. A stool softener may make your stool less painful & less likely to irritate the injured areas. Sitz baths, OTC pain relievers and a steroid cream may give you some relief from your symptoms. Get well!

What do I do about a hemorrhoid that is bleeding?

What do I do about a hemorrhoid that is bleeding?

Time works but...: Bleed usually resolves in a few days. Depends on what you have already tried. The first things are conservative including increasing fluid and fiber in diet to ensure that you bms are soft, losing weight, limiting the time sitting on the toilet. If still a problem you could try banding and finally excision/ligation. Surgery is really the only definitive treatment for this. See your primary md.

How much bleeding is normal with hemorrhoids?

How much bleeding is normal with hemorrhoids?

Can look like a lot: Sometimes hemorrhoid bleeding can look like a lot because of the toilet bowl "filling" up with what looks like the whole bowl but it really is just diluted blood. Rarely can some people bleed enough to get anemic from it. If it is a recurrent problem that topical otc creams/suppositories don't help, see a GI specialist to get scoped just to be on the safe side.

My hemorrhoid is bleeding, can it become infected?

My hemorrhoid is bleeding, can it become infected?

No: The excellent circulation to the rectum and the resulting delivery of infection fighting blood cells make hemorrhoid infections pretty rare. The itching and redness at the rectal opening is often complicated by yeast (monilial) colonization from the bowel. I've found the use of an antifungal (eg Clotrimazole which is over the counter) and some cortisone cream very helpful to get rid of the itch.

Can the bleeding caused by hemorrhoids be excessive

Can the bleeding caused by hemorrhoids be excessive

Rarely: Bleeding from hemorrhoids rarely cause excess blood loss or anemia. This is because it generally stops when you lie down and stop straining. If you are having more than a small amount of bleeding, though, it is time to have surgery.
