    Default Haemorrhoids - long term

    Hi all

    We've now finished having our family and I'm left with some painful haemorrhoids. I've done all the short term treatments but I'm after something more long term.

    Does anyone have any experience with having surgery or banding? Or are there other options for long term treatment ?

    Any advice is much appreciated

    FlipFlop, I know how you feel Mine ended up flaring up very badly with lots of continous bleeding, ots of blood loss and also they were painful... so I went to my GP- he said, wow, you need to be looked at today. He gave me the referral and I was at the specialist that day. He had a surgery list the next day, so I went along. The procedure was a colonoscopy (so he checked out the whole bowel etc) then he examined the haems and decided that banding was enough (I had some internal banding done, so in the end, no surgical removal). I had no side effects or recovery time and it was the best thing I have ever done. If I have any probs again, I am not going to hesitate for years like I did in the past, that's for sure. BTW, I went private so I could get it done quickly. There were some out of pockets but with rebates/tax it was okay. Good luck

    My mum had it done after suffering for 30 years post birth!!!! I've had my 2nd (and last) and have painful bleeding each time I go. She is hounding me to get a referral at my next appt.
    she said first bowel movements post surgery were extremely painful but so worth it. I'd be interested to hear how you go.

    I'm off to the gp tomorrow with my hamerroid issues. Developed a few about a week ago and they have been bleeding continuously- I've also wiped away 2 large clots as well. The blood is that bad that it was running down my leg. Don't know if I should head to the Ed or just wait for the gp tomorrow...
