Rubber band ligation for hemorrhoids. Is it a good option (with good success on first try)?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Great option

The success rate is not the best, unless the hemorrhoid is small.
If you stick to fiber and stool softeners on a regular basis after the banding the results can be quite long lasting.
