Can You Get Hemorrhoids By Sitting On Cold Concrete
I have an external hemorrhoid that is starting to hurt can I pop it with a pin doc refuses to refer to remove due to me being over weight (25 stone)?
Change: It seems as if the doctor doesn't want anything to do with you. Please ask your family and friends who they would recommend now to change doctors.
Can you get hemorrhoids from flying on a plane? Does the elevation have an effect on them or is just from sitting? A friend said she got a hemorrhoid from riding on a plane.
Airplane travel: By itself does not cause hemorrhoids. But air travel can cause severe dehydration, leading to constipation at conclusion of flight and thus straining and a flare of hemorrhoids. You lose 20 ounces of fluids per hour of air travel just sleeping on the plane. I recommend drinkingat least 20 ounces every hour of air travel and must be caffeine free/alcohol free fluids, to avoid constipation.See 1 more doctor answer
Tincture of Time: Acute flare ups are typically self-limited. If there is a thrombosed hemorrhoid this too will also go away althought you may end up with a tag of extra tissue. Repeated flare ups can lead to a prominence of extra hemorrhoidal tissue that will not go away and may need surgical intervention. Avoid constipation and use good bowel habits. No reading on the toilet.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Hemorrhoidal tissue is normal for everyone. U can not remove all of it as it will cause severe structure. Then u can't have a vowel movement. Best thing is to avoid constipation.
Normal anatomy: Hemorrhoid veins are normal anatomy at the anal opening. These normal veins can develop enlargement or irritation from constipation & straining at the toilet. Avoid constipation & straining at the toilet. Eat high fiber foods, take metamucil. See a surgeon if there is persistent pain or bleeding.
Hemorrhoid causes: Not everyone get hemorrhoids. They can happen with increased venous pressure, straining, lifting, coughing. They don't impact your long term health, but they cause a lot of distress. Okay to check in with your doc for advise and exam.
Pain: From hemorrhoids is usually due to an external hemorrhoid issue. If they are just swollen, bed rest for 24-48 hours and warm tub soaks work best. If it is thrombosed or clotted, seeing a colorectal surgeon to incise and drain will get the most prompt response. Be sure your pain is not due to an anal fissure as that is sometimes present and needs different treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
Start with an exam: The place to start is with an examination by a general or colorectal surgeon. That doctor will be able to assess if you (a) have hemorrhoids and (b) need treatment. All human beings have normal hemorrhoidal cushions in their lower rectum and anus. Once you have been examined, the surgeon can give you a treatment plan. This plan may include surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
Diet and exercise: Eating a balanced diet, rich in fiber, is one of the most effective lifestyle changes you can make for your hemorrhoids. A high-fiber diet, together with plenty of fluids, softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids or worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. Along with a healthy diet, exercise can help ease bowel movements.
Diet and fluids: Generally warm tub soaks in plain water for 15-20 minutes several times per day and after a bm, bed rest if severely swollen and correcting constipation and/or diarrhea. Eat a high fiber diet and drink 80-100 oz of non caffeinated, non alcoholic fluids daily. Occasionaly rubber band ligation or surgery is indicated if the above fails to improve the situation.See 1 more doctor answer
