Avoid constipation: Constipation and pushing hard to have a bowel movement can cause hemorrhoids. Avoid constipation by increasing fiber in your diet or adding a fiber supplement. A stool softener can also help. Once you stop pushing hard the hemorrhoid sometimes shrinks.

If the hemorrhoid clots, also known as thrombosis, there can be significant pain. Immediate treatment is directed at getting the clot to resolve with moist heat or may require opening it, to evacuate the clot.

However, there are usually several hemorrhoids (commonly 3 columns) so a recurrence in a different hemorrhoid is not uncommon. ...Read more

If I thinki have a thrombosed hemorrhoid can it wait until monday to be seen? Always had little rectal tags, never been told I had hemorrhoids but today I have a bump on one side of my rectum that to nee looks like it is fluid filled or the a possible hem

Yes it can wait: If it is a thrombosed hemorrhoid that it will be a tender nodule near the outlet of the anus. Soaking in warm water will be helpful. Ibuprofen for the pain. If it is excised within the first 48 hours the healing is a bit faster otherwise figure 10-14 days for resolution. It should be evaluated to make sure it is not something else such as a developing infection. ...Read more

Doc removed a huge clot in ext thrombosed hemorrhoid today, and expressed the wound. Is it ok to drink alcohol now?

Maybe, maybe not...: Drinking alcohol may cause dehydration, and that may lead to harder / bulkier stools. While it won't affect the clot in the hemorrhoid, it may cause you more difficulty with passing stool. And that may further exacerbate your condition. If you are going to drink, make sure to consume an equivalent amount of water. ...Read more

Promptly: While issue is lessened currently, you could rebleed again and potentially heavily. Avoid straining at stool by taking a softener (perhaps miralax) and apply anusol hc cream or Tucks pads until definitive care is available.

Would oral prednisone help a thrombosed external hemorrhoid that's failed tx w/ hc suppositories & cream? What's best for pain control?

Would oral prednisone help a thrombosed external hemorrhoid that's failed tx w/ hc suppositories & cream? What's best for pain control?

Hemrrhoid: Oral Prednisone has not been well documented in the literature in the treatment of hemrrhoids. Keeping on a strict schedule of nsaids for their anti-inflammatory effect, barring no contra-indications in your personal history, would be beneficial to you. I would recomment starting with Ibuprofen (motrin) 600mg 3 times a day for 30 days. The anti-inflammatory effects take a full week before benefit. ...Read more
