In brief: Variable

It really depends on maintaining bowel habit modifications.
Good results can last several years if constipation is avoided.Those with familial tendencies may need retreatments sooner.Office methods have excellent long term results, avoiding surgical recovery time.

In brief: Depends on cause

The results of treatment really depend on the causes.
If these are not treated, hemorrhoids can recur relatively quickly.
