A few months back I was given ultram as I was having a bad pain in my back. with this followed a very hard stool, which in turn gave me hemmorrhoids. I have seen my physician and they basically tell me the only option is surgery. It does not hurt at all, there is no blood. Only a large lump protruding from my anus. Should I just let it be? or should I get surgery? I hear that the surgery is very painful and I would like to avoid it if it is unnecessary. Any suggestions? Or has anyone experience a painless hemorrhoid?

  • if the pile has shrunk there is no need to have it removed, but it will be painful if the pile fills with blood the best way to shrik a pile unless you have ansol is to use a cold flannel but in england we don't have them cut out unless its necessary sometimes the surgery dosen't work as it can form another on in its place

  • If the hemorrhoid piles already prolapse it may get worse over time if left untreated. It is almost impossible to shrink old large piles with home/natural remedies. Surgery is effective, but it is the most risky treatment.Take a look at the following pages for possible treatment options:http://www.healthassist.net/conditions/hemorrhoids-treatments.shtmlhttp://www.healthassist.net/conditions/hemorrhoids-treatments2.shtml

  • I have the same problem, in fact, I have had it for 15 years or so, due to permanent problems with my digestion. For me there was never a question of having the pile removed, as almost everyone I know who did had more problems after than before. I know, it does not look nice, but at least I don't see it... :-)

  • in 1973 i listened to a radio interview with a doctor whose name i did not take much notice of.she said these words:"i have never failed to cure a case of piles by means of dietary adjustment." i have a good verbatim memory ,and those were her precise words.this was before the popularisation of the facts about dietary fibre.as it was a new idea for me at the time,i wasmuch intrigued and set forth to find out what she might have meant;not an easy task in those far off days.since then i have had piles three times,twice due to dietary carelessness caused by overwork,and most lately,due to a colonoscopy carried out by a sadist.(it was the withdrawal that did the damage,and very considerable it was.) but in each case fibre did the job.i have on many occasions been able to pass this wonderful advice on,always to good effect.it can take up to a month,but if you persevere,it will probably work out well for you.(last year i read a first world war memoir,which mentioned this approach being in use in 1916:"a diet which included a daily bowl of chopped cabbage and onion soon settled my old trouble,as my wounds slowly healed in an army hospital."so it is a well established approach.(quite possibly it was known in the ancient world.)but i notice a disposition on this site to promote and accept only the esoteric,the strange practically unheard of herb,or the semi occult oriental hong kong phooey,or the smoke and mirrors technique of some jumped up self styled savant.it isnt flattering to be told that a problem being experienced is an ordinary outcome of an ordinary error,subject to an ordinary ,rather boring solution,but most of lifes problems are banal and can be solved by a mixture,actually rather uncommon,of self discipline and rationality.medicine is no different.give your intestine its natural conditions and it will reward you with normal,healthy behaviour.i have told you what i know to be effective.
